Volunteer Testimonials


“The work that goes on with the animals and the love and care that is provided is inspiring. The horses come first and the ingenuity and overwhelming amount of knowledge held by Georgie and the family is impressive and ensures that, even on a very tight budget, all are well provided for. 

The contribution you can make as a volunteer is great. Work wise-to help ease the load, but also financially to allow the great work to carry on.” Gael F.


“The most remarkable experience of my life! The fact I extended my stay and still felt it wasn’t long enough says it all…I would 100% encourage anyone who is even slightly thinking of this to go ahead and do it, because when you watch the light slowly appear in the eyes of a horse who arrived with no light or spirit left in them, there is nothing more rewarding.” Hannah K.


“This was literally one of the best things I have ever done in my entire life.” Isabel E.


“It’s very hard physical work, but there’s also lots of down time and plenty of fun…I wished I had a bit more experience riding and general handling of horses, but the organizers did a really excellent job of accommodating my skill level with getting the job done.” Jessica S.

“Learning about each horses’s story and how Georgie and Penny have helped them was moving and inspiring! Every aspect of my trip to South Africa was perfect and I can’t wait to go back!!” Christina K.


“I absolutely loved my time at Cintsa Horses, and my only regret was that I couldn’t stay longer!  The people are great fun, the horses are lovely, and the riding is amazing. They also took the fact that I’m a vet student into consideration, and allowed me to participate in some of the medical care of the animals…I hope to return once I qualify, when I can hopefully be of even more use to them.” Danielle J.

“It was a fabulous experience. There is a lot of hard work but also relaxing fun times. Everyone is friendly and you feel like part of the family right from the start.” Sue C., recently returned with her daughter

“Had an absolutely fantastic three weeks! Everyone was so welcoming and friendly and Georgie cooks the most amazing food!” Maddie V. 


“I had the most amazing month in South Africa! I was nervous before going but by the end of my time there I was so upset that I was leaving. It was so much more than I thought it would be…I found there was so much more to learn and they were eager to let us do things and help.” Ester W.

“I met some amazing people and learnt a huge amount due to the closeness and connection I was able to have with the horses and the people. The family I stayed with made me feel very welcome and their hospitality was incredible…I would definitely recommend this trip!” Hannah B.

“If you have a love of horses and enjoy riding, then look no further, this is an amazing opportunity to give back TLC to these amazing horses. The scenery is breathtaking and riding along the beaches is the most precious memories you will have.” Linda N.
