Charity profile

Janine Botha has been helping horses in need in Mthatha, Transkei, South Africa for 17 years.

Janine’s Mission is:

  • To continuously educate locals in horse care.
  • To provide assistance with dipping, de-worming and medical care for the horses.
  • To provide, correctly fitting bridles and saddles for their horses.
  • To give the working horses a better and more comfortable chance in life.

How we help:

A record of each animal is kept so it’s progress can be monitored by Barn Yard Stables.
Janine is well known in her area, and often horse riders come from afar to bring their horses, donkeys and dogs to be seen by her.
Often they are so ill or injured that they are brought it shopping trolleys or wheel barrows.
