African Horse Safari is very excited about getting involved with the fantastic UK charity called the Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund Charity: www.mdirf.co.uk and their exclusive event:
The event, held on 29th November, is at the RAF club in London and is being supported by Quintessentially Equestrian. The exciting evening will feature key celebrity riders in the hot seat (Spencer Wilton (Olympic Dressage Rider), Nick Skelton (Gold Medallist Olympic Show-Jumper) and Zara Tindall (Phillips) all interviewed by Steven Wilde, top equestrian TV presenter.
We are honoured to be part of such a fantastic event. African Horse Safaris has donated a stay at our horse internship program in Zimbabwe as a raffle prize. One month to take in the beauty and magic of Zimbabwe whilst working at the lodge stables:
“A horse riding working holiday at an African stables is a unique experience, unlike anywhere else in the world. In Africa, the vet doesn’t live 5 minutes down the road, medicine and equipment isn’t always readily available and tack can’t be ordered off the internet. As a result, working at an African stables requires imagination (improvisation often being a necessary tool!), confidence, hard work and determination. You will receive a hands-on experience, working alongside Ted Wilmot – the stable manager and horse guru – helping to manage the stables, trying your hand at basic veterinary tasks, shoeing horses and gaining experience you often won’t get when working in other countries.
As an intern you will gain experience in the daily running and management of a Zimbabwean stables, which caters for horse-riding lessons, horse safaris, carriage safaris and polocrosse while soaking up the essence of the African bush. You will get the opportunity to ride alongside plains game, take that giraffe selfie, swim with horses, learn polocrosse and participate in hands-on work with over 30 horses.”
African Horse Safaris can’t wait to welcome the winner to Africa!
