Weekly Schedule:


Weather permitting, the weekly schedule will combine equestrian with nature, where volunteers will either be at the stables or in the bush. Wednesdays will provide one with an opportunity to experience one of the various excursions and every Thursday, volunteers will spend some time helping out on outreach where we assist dogs in the local village, working with HALO (Hoedspruit AnimaL Outreach) and if the opportunity arises, we will be able to assist Nourish , a local NPO, with their community work that they do. On weekends we will go have a night at the local bar for a party, as well as an awesome social braai/barbecue around the fire. A fair amount of free time is also made available, where one can use either to catch up on their personal requirements such as Facebook, Skype etc., or simply to take in the beautiful sights and sounds of their surroundings.
