Our horse volunteer opportunities are set in the beautiful surroundings of Kaapsehoop Berlin State Forest – 17 000 hectares, on the Drakensberg Escarpment, offering a scenic adventure. The project runs for a minimum of one week and a maximum of 12 weeks. Horse volunteers coming to South Africa must have some horse riding experience, other basic skills and project responsibilities are taught to volunteer during their stay.
It is essential that volunteer is between 18-55 years of age, physically fit and of weight below 90kg. Due to animal welfare, we must apply a horseback riding weight limit to assure the animals do not suffer back injuries. During the project, volunteers work full days from 7h00 to 16h00 taking days off when required and to do optional excursions such as visiting the Kruger National Park Safari/Blyde River Canyon etc.
