I was warmly welcomed from the moment I arrived, with great communication in the lead up. The nature surrounding the farm is truly breathtaking - I have learnt the names of so many birds and have seen all kinds of wildlife. I didn't have much riding experience, but the staff at the farm kindly helped me grasp the basics and I always felt at ease. The food was delicious and beautifully presented at every meal. Most importantly, Alfie was the most wonderful host and I am so grateful for this experience. It was truly an honour to stay at Vonfidel the farm and be a part of this beautiful family :)

Holistic Holliday with Horses is what I would use to describe this wonderful experience. Allie's the farm is the perfect retreat. The work is easy & the environment is so friendly. If you're looking for a place to disconnect with busy city life & reconnect with nature & animals this is the place to do it. 100/10 recommend:)

Alfie is the best host when he is there however this opportunity was defiantly not what I was expecting. If reconnecting with nature and wanting to dissociate completely from the world then this is a great place to do so! As far as volunteering goes there isn't anything you are required to do except ride Copper. I did struggle with the length of the minimum stay and did leave a little early as felt very much isolated! Learnt a lot about health benefits on food saw more about how locals really live. Didn't see much natural horsemanship but grateful for the opportunity to see how it ran.

If you're really into nature and love the quietness, this place is definitely for you! They also take great care for you, very Sri Lankan food, and Alfie will help you with questions. For me however, it was too quiet and really boring. There is nothing to do for you as a volunteer, and I really don't know why they would call you one while staying there. I felt really lonely, because it's in the middle of nowhere. It was not what I was expecting, because there was nothing to do. Before you book this 'volunteering' position, you should know that you will just be a guest, not a team member.

Dear Lora,

As outlined in our profile, we are a signature riding holiday ranch. We carefully select suitable volunteers, and their tasks and experiences naturally vary based on the activities at hand, the nature of our guests, and their willingness to work or socialize, among other factors. You were with us during a period when we had just completed back-to-back riding holidays, so our horses were on break and some team members were on leave.

On April 10, 2024, you asked, "Are there any other volunteers present?" to which we replied, "We try to have a maximum of two students at a time. Over the past two years, we have seen a demand for more discerning students who want privacy, as most of them are digital nomads with equipment, space, and privacy preferences." Given this clear communication, it is puzzling that you described our ranch as being “in the middle of nowhere” and “too quiet and really boring.”

We chose this location out of a passion to escape urban madness and seek tranquility, a choice appreciated by many of our guests and volunteers. We understand that preferences vary, but it was clear from the start that our ranch is not a hostel and would have, at most, two volunteers at any given time.

You left earlier than your commitment required. We had staff on standby to host you, who could have been sent on leave, but instead, you chose to criticize us in a manner we believe is unfair and unfounded. We understand that you might be perturbed because there was no refund, as explained per our organization policy. Our profile contains nothing misleading or false, and if there had been, we believe you would have highlighted it at the time. We regret your insincerity and unsocial conduct in this regard.

Regarding your statement, "There is nothing to do for you as a volunteer," we want to clarify that we run an equestrian operation in a country with very few horses. Horse comfort and safety are of paramount importance to us. You had the option to ride twice a day on some days and once a day on others, based on your preference. If you had wanted more work, we would have gladly assigned you tasks that you could execute comfortably and safely. Staying in your accommodation all day and complaining more than a week after you left does not help us address any concerns. If you check your WhatsApp, you will see that Alfie responded to your messages within minutes, even while traveling or at work. We are, therefore, disappointed with your attitude.

Furthermore, your private comment about lowering the $15-a-day fee, which covers three meals, coffee, electricity, mineral drinking water, linen, water, and the prorated costs of staff who cooked your vegetarian food, served, cleaned, and kept you safe and attended to your needs, is insulting and demeaning. Where else would you receive all this and have the opportunity to ride a horse twice a day for such a cost?

Sri Lanka may have a lower GDP than your country, but we are richer in hospitality and service. We have to provide all of the above and still pay licensing fees, taxes, and upkeep. We left you good feedback, but your insincerity prevents us from remaining silent on this matter.

After your encounter, we have not only raised the fee we charge our WP volunteers but have also lowered the minimum stay requirement. This adjustment aims to attract those who genuinely wish to benefit from our program, similar to others who have given us positive feedback. At the same time, it naturally filters out those who may not be a good fit, helping us avoid future drama.

Sincerely,
Alfie

You can really can get in touch with nature! There was no wifi and you're alone as a volunteer. I felt really alone. There were no task for me that I could do. You really felt that it is more about business than anything else. You're not a part of the team. If you looking for a place where you can work and have some interaction with animals/nature, than it is your place. There is also good food if you're a vegetarian but you have to listens to lots of comments how meat would be better for you. There were also other inappropriate comments about how woman should dress.

Dear Linda,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. During your brief stay of two days, we made efforts to ensure your comfort and addressed any concerns that arose.

On the evening of your arrival, we extended a warm welcome and hosted you for dinner. However, it seemed that on the second day, you encountered some personal challenges, including fatigue and emotional distress, which affected your engagement with the activities.

Regarding your attire, we maintain a commitment to safety, cultural sensitivity, and professionalism in our interactions with both guests and local partners. While we understand that cultural norms may vary, we regret any discomfort you may have experienced.

Regarding connectivity, we strive to provide clear information to our guests, including suggestions for obtaining local SIM cards. We apologize for any inconvenience you faced and appreciate your patience as we assisted you in resolving the issue.

We regret that your experience did not meet your expectations, and we value your feedback as we continually strive to improve our services. We sincerely hope that you will reconsider your review and give us the opportunity to welcome you again in the future.

Warm regards!
PS: We are happy to clarify details beyond formality of this response.
