Horse Riding in Africa

LATEST COMMENTS:

"Mozambique is the most beautiful country in the world for beach-riding. It is heaven. The horses themselves are lovely: safe, well-schooled and great fun to ride. I spent a week pinching myself to check I wasn't dreaming."
Kate Kellaway - Journalist for the Guardian Newspaper, UK

"I fell in love with a lovely white Arab with whom I spent hours cantering along the beach, only stopping to watch the fishermen coming back with their catch of the day - which I knew would inevitably end up on my plate. What more do you need!
Joelle Boniface, Paris, France.


"I wanted to thank you for an amazing trip and being such an inspiration. I cannot thank you enough for your hospitality and openness."
Karly Kupferberg, Sudan.

"I am lucky enough to have been on many riding holidays around the world but none quite as memorable as staying with Mozambique Horse Safari. I don't often say this, as the world is full of exciting places to visit, but I shall return."
Roz Hughes, United Kingdom.

ONE HUNDRED AND FOUR HORSES
A letter is handed to you. In broken English, it tells you that you must now vacate your farm; that this is no longer your home, for it now belongs to the crowd on your doorstep. Then the drums begin to beat.

As the land invasions gather pace, the Retzlaffs begin an epic journey across Zimbabwe, facing eviction after eviction, trying to save the group of animals with whom they feel a deep and enduring bond the horses.

When their neighbours flee to New Zealand, the Retzlaffs promise to look after their horses, and making similar promises to other farmers along their journey, not knowing whether they will be able to feed or save them, they amass an astonishing herd of over 300 animals. But the final journey to freedom will be arduous, and they can take only 104.

104 Horses is the story of an idyllic existence that falls apart at the seams, and a story of incredible bonds a love of the land, the strength of a family, and of the connection between man and the most majestic of animals, the horse.

THE WALL OF FAME. Some seriously cool pictures sent in from around the world. Please keep sending them in!
