Healing Through Horses

  • 32Day(s)
  • Trip Code: STCPTHTH

With the assistance of volunteers and trained instructors, children with very little mobility can experience the freedom of their limbs moving while on horseback. Volunteers need horsemanship experience, as well as, a love for children and patience with disabilities. This very, specialised project is highly sought after and only has limited spaces, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Your Role

The volunteer adds value to the disabled child`s life by treating them with dignity and giving them confidence to ride on the horse. Without a large number of volunteers (local and international) it would not be possible to offer these horse-riding classes, as some children require 2 adults walking next to them and supporting them while they are on the horse. Obviously, the horses also need care and grooming, and for their stables and surrounding areas to be kept clean. PLEASE NOTE: Caring for horses is physically strenuous! Volunteers must be ready to work hard! Working hours are Monday to Friday from 08h00 to 12h30 and 14h00 to 18h00
