Volunteer programs at WHIPALONG, in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa. We offer: * Volunteer horse programs * Rehabilitation programs * Horse trails * And much more
The Whipalong Volunteer Program [see program information] invites volunteers to be a part of the on-going rehabilitation and re-schooling of abused and neglected horses. Volunteers work closely with Kate, owner of Whipalong in the various aspects of equine rehabilitation. .
Regular riding is a part of the program irrespective of the ability of the rider. Volunteers may receive lessons from Kate or take part in riding trails on the adjacent 4 200ha Moholoholo Game Reserve. Possible sightings may include white rhino, giraffe, hippo, warthog and several antelope species, as well as over 150 bird species/
Further to this, volunteers' responsibilities can include lunging, backing of young horses (depending on the ability of the volunteer), feeding, grooming, tack maintenance and general care of the horses and yard.
The program is informal and relaxed with volunteers supervised throughout their stay at Whipalong. During the program, volunteers will be given the opportunity to see places of interest in the area. We will assist volunteers with their arrangements, however, additional activities will be for the volunteers own expense.
Whipalong encourages a hands-on approach and is therefore a great opportunity for the horse lover to get valuable practical experience with horses and to support this worthwhile cause.
