Joseph's Dream Equine ​Volunteer Program 

Our Joseph's Dream Equine Volunteer Project offers the opportunity for international explorers to participate in our equine assisted activities while enjoying one of the most desired Equestrian Estates in Southern Africa located in an attractive trail riding area. The project is framed by our  Natural Horsemanship training course with our Joseph's Dream Appaloosa Stud horses on location.  


The program offers a uniquely shaped package for you as an individual out of the following activities, tasks and highlights: 


  • Horsemanship training sessions  

  • Study time

  • Trail rides  

  • Private time to recharge, relax and absorb the beauty of Namibia's stunning nature & our gorgeous horse family 

  • Develop new skills, make new friends and work in a great team of people; of which the consistent core is formed by our friendly and talented Horse Workers from the ancient Namibian San tribe and their amazing families.  

Our peaceful and modern shaped green village provides accomodation for you during your stay in one of our brand-new chalets with private toilet and bathroom. Our very limited number of Volunteers ensures that the desired family character of the program stays alive and provides the opportunity for personal shaped day programs according to your unique interests, talents and desires.
