Horses:  volunteering in Ghana

Gap Year, Year Out, Volunteer, Africa, work, horses, abroad

Beautiful horses!

Horses are a love affair for many!  Volunteering with horses in Ghana is a way you can share your skills and passion for horses and riding with others who are largely self-taught and do not share the same standards as say the UK.

Acrobatics on the beach in Ghana!

When you are not working at the Stables, there is plenty to see.  The NGO you are staying with can arrange trips to Milly’s Beach, Cape Coast, Mole National Park, the Volta Delta Region and if anything is going on locally, they will know about it.
