Horses For Causes Namibia

Personal message

Vesta Burmeister is a Therapeutic Horseriding Teacher in Windhoek. She is one of our closest friends.

For the last 10 years, Vesta Burmeister has been training, keeping and feeding a stable of horses that have changed the lives of children with physical, emotional and psychological difficulties, but now Moltkeblick Stables is under a real threat to close down.

A severe shortage of grass due to the drastic drought in Namibia is threatening the existence of the therapeutic horses of Moltkeblick Stables outside Windhoek. Battling to feed her horses, owner and horse therapist, Vesta Burmeister, has also been diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing intensive treatment, therefore unable to work and sustain her horses and workers.

Closing down the stables will deprive these special needs children of what is possibly their only experience of an unencumbered engagement with an uninhibited force of life - something that we all take for granted.

The horse, to the special needs child, is not merely an animal. For children whose souls are trapped inside bodies and minds that make it extremely hard - and sometimes impossible - to communicate, to move and to engage with the world, these horses are hope. These horses offer them an opportunity to channel the feelings, the love, the frustration, the fear and, ultimately, the opportunity to connect with the vital energy of LIFE itself.

The responsibility now falls on us as a community to show our gratitude, our support, and grace to keep these horses of hope fed and cared for until the keepers of the flame are back on their feet.

The costs will be used to purchase additional feed for the horses & to take care of their caretakers whilst Vesta is unable to teach due to her Cancer Treatment.

Vesta's horses are extremely close to her heart. The funds will help to relieve Vesta of additional stress so that she can fight her cancer.

The funds will go to Vesta Burmeister.
