Foi meu primeiro voluntariado e foi uma experiência incrível no the organization, com pessoas maravilhosas em um lugar muito lindo😍 I recommend this experience for anyone who would like to work with horses and discover assisted equine therapy. I was not speaking Portuguese before coming but it hasn't been a problem so don't be afraid to come, you will learn a lot of things here, Portuguese and so much more! Muito obrigada the organization

Fue una experiencia total y completamente increíble. El lugar es alucinante. Hermoso. Estuve muy cómoda viviendo ahi. Todo el tiempo se preocupaban por si estaba cómoda o me faltaba algo. Las instalaciones son increíbles. Sus actividades las desarrollan SUPER profesionalmente. Aprendí muchísimo en sólo una semana de estadía. Pero lo que más me gustó fue la gente que forma parte de la ONG. Uno más amoroso y cariñoso que el otro. Siempre estaban con una sonrisa dispuestos a ayudarte, enseñarte o compartir momentos hermosos con vos. Lo recomiendo MUCHÍSIMO ❤️🥰

Estar na organização tem sido uma experiência INCRÍVEL! Só tenho a agradecer por terem me recebido tão bem e me deixarem fazer parte de um projeto tão lindo! É uma experiência enriquecedora que tem me inspirado muito, tanto pelo contato com os cavalos, a natureza (eu que sempre fui muito urbana, tenho vontade de ficar o dia todo na organização) quanto pelas pessoas inspiradoras que conheci. Eu com certeza voltarei mais vezes e recomendo a todos que vivam essa experiência também.
