My friend and I were only 15 and 16 when we took part in the program. We didn’t speak English perfectly, but it really wasn’t a problem on the sanctuary ! (Besides, we made a lot of progress during our stay)
We were in a small group of 7 volunteers. The language barrier was present, but that did not prevent us from creating beautiful memories. I’m thinking in particular of those afternoons together at the pool, or the different meals we shared (like the time we cooked veggie burgers near the sanctuary!).Read More
Clare and her family were really nice and welcoming! Thanks to Clare, we learned many things about abused horses in Andalusia. We learned a lot about how to take care of the horses. The activities at the refuge were quite varied! The only drawback was the heat on the sanctuary when we worked (we went in early July!).
We didn’t work at the sanctuary everyday. Thanks to Chico, we went to the coast one afternoon. We were also able to visit Ronda twice during our days off. During all this time, we visited Andalusia: this is also what pleased us in this project, we helped the sanctuary while discovering Spain!
It was our first experience abroad alone and it had a great impact on us. We learned a lot from this project. We returned to France with memories that can only be created in this refuge.
