The Equestrian Rehabilitation Centre in South Africa offers a second chance for horses and indeed a few other animals.
Small horse loving family business started in 1998 the Dickerson family are well known for their love and passion for horses. Georgie originally from the UK, worked with horses from a young age earned her BHSI and moved to Zambia in her early 20’s. Her love of horses passed down to her two daughters Tanja and Penny and they were always involved with horsey people.
Tanja and Penny started a small beach horse trail venture and on doing this found they did not have the finances to buy ‘prime stock’ and tended to buy poorer stock which they built up for their trails. Georgie continued in her employment until things were off the ground managing to subsidies the venture.
Tanja and Penny became well known in the area for buying horses that were in need of attention and having a very good success rate. They were approached by one of the anti cruelty departments and were directed to horses in need, in January 2002 they took the responsibility of 9 horses and ponies from the Tranksei area which were in the most horrendous condition, needless to say they did achieved their goals!
Things have gone from strength to strength. To support their work with the horse, the team also offer riding safaris and beach rides. They now have over 20 horses in their care and all the horses are now safe and very well cared for. The horse have been given a second chance in life.
