Bafaan

Personal message

Samson Bafana Ndhlovu, better known to Penbritte Equestrian as, Bafaan, or the ‘children whisperer',  has been at Penbritte for the past 36 years, since the age of 7 years old he has been around the stables working with the horses and with the people.

He started as a casual worker, and then became a groom. From there he moved on to becoming head groom and then assistant manager. He also started showjumping and has represented SA at a show in Swaziland. He is now the manager of our very successful riding school, where he has completed his equestrian teaching qualifications.

Bafaan is very passionate about what he does and is a hard worker, I am yet to meet a child that doesn’t like him. He manages to give the kids that ride with us so much confidence and keep their lessons fun at the same time.

We are raising funds to help our amazing coach and 'horse and child whisperer, purchase a new car after he was involved in a freak accident with a waterbuck that destroyed his vehicle driving home from work. Bafaan lives about 20km away from Penbritte and now he has to catch lifts and walk to work since the accident.

Understanding that Bafana will have difficulty purchasing a new vehicle as the sole breadwinner for his mother, 5 sons, as well as his extended family, we have launched this crowdfunding campaign to help Bafana get back on his feet.

With your help, Bafaan will no longer have to walk / hitch hike the 20 km one way to get to walk. Having a car meant so much to Bafaan and our hope is to be able to raise funds towards a new car for our hardworking coach.

Donate Via Snapscan

100% of the funds will be put towards purchasing Bafaan a new car.
