Working holidays

Ever wanted to go on a riding holiday or horse safari with a purpose? Our working holidays and horse volunteering opportunities might be just what you are looking for! These rides offer a riding experience at a discounted rate from the normal guest price, offering you the chance to get involved differently. Being a participant, rather than a mere guest, allows you to discover the local culture and lifestyle in depth. Starting from two weeks, our working holidays combine basic yard work with other exciting riding and non-riding experiences, perhaps with the opportunity to take part in conservation projects too. These are budget-friendly options for those of you who are dreaming of an unforgettable riding adventure, in Africa and beyond.
