Volunteering with us offers a wonderful opportunity to work with our amazingly beautiful ,friendly and intelligent Appaloosa horses and also to help us rescue abused and neglected horses and orphaned wildlife and to assist in their care and rehabilitation. As a volunteer you will be involved in all aspects of horse care from feeding to grooming, health checks, exercising and training. It will include working with some of our young untrained horses to get them used to different people and ready for trail riding. You may be required to assist in going on rescues to collect the animals and help with their subsequent care and rehabilitation. You will be able to release your inner cowboy/girl by using the horses for cattle herding and counting of game when required. Depending on the time of year you may get the chance to help us with the showing of the horses, both in hand and riding classes at various shows around the country if this interests you. The Ranch is a working farm and you will be able to help in the feeding and care of all the animals which include cattle, alpacas, ostriches, vervet monkey, sheep and our four springbok babies who were orphaned due to the drought.  Wildlife on the Ranch include families of meerkats and ground squirrels, wart hogs, steenbok and springbok, regular patrolling of the Ranch and fences is necessary to ensure the welfare of the animals.

Journée Typique

Your day will start at 7.00 with feeding the horses, bottle feeding those that require it and the other animals on the farm. Breakfast will follow whilst all are happily eating. The morning will be spent first with health checks, then grooming and taking the horses out to their camps. Moving the cattle if needed.  Working and training with the horses will continue and finally a check of the Ranch and fences will complete the morning. Lunch is 12.00 to 2.00 (3.00) summer due to temperatures. After lunch its halter training and grooming for the babies. also spending some time with the Alpacas, springboks and the young ostriches. Trail riding.  After the afternoon feeding its time for you to relax before dinner. The evening is for you to enjoy as you wish. You are free to explore the Ranch and spot wildlife and birds or just chill out with a drink and watch the amazing African sunsets.
