Equestrian Retreat & Clinic

 

Join Kids of Nature for 4 nights and 5 days in the glorious mountains of Stanford near Cape Town, South Africa, where you will learn how to massage, mobilise, and stretch your horse, as well as indulge in me-time by unplugging from the crazy business.

Gilliyan Carter-Morgan, leading UK sports & remedial massage therapist, will teach you techniques to improve the overall performance and maintenance of your horse.
