Healing with Horses Therapeutic Centre

The Healing with Horses Therapeutic Centre offers help to disadvantaged children and adults with disabilities in Bulawayo. At the moment, the Centre is working with children from the Sandra Jones Centre and from the KGVI Centre.

The Centre is a non-profit, voluntary organization with 30 trained ponies and horses. We rely on the kindness of others, including voluntary help, donations and sponsorships to help those in need.



Volunteering with us is a great way to learn new skills, make new friends, and, most importantly, make a difference. Our therapeutic riding program would not be possible without the volunteers who give freely of their time and their personalities.

We are always looking for more ‘Sidewalkers’. Your job will be to walk beside the horse, guiding and helping the rider achieve the tasks set by the instructor. No prior experience with horses or people with disabilities is required. We will show you what to do once you arrive.



Come and experience Africa while learning about Horses. We are situated in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, and we were the founders of therapeutic riding in Zimbabwe. We have a BHSAI Instructor and teach English Balance Seat riding, in all equestrian disciplines.

We have a PATH Intl. Registered Therapeutic Instructor at our Centre, the only one in Zimbabwe. We work with underprivileged children with disabilities, physical disabilities, emotional, physical and sexual abuse rehabilitation, children with special needs, learning disabilities, and behavioural problems.

You can get experience working with our horses, learn or practice stable management, horsemanship, riding, basic first aid in horses. You can even compete in Show Jumping, Dressage or Three Phase Eventing. On the therapeutic side – you can get experience working with these children in the amazing field of Equine Assisted Activities and Therapy.
