Welcome to Chilanga!

A Riding School for the Disabled

Chilanga Riding School for the Disabled is a non-profit organisation which offers horse riding as a proven means of therapy to improve the quality of life for mentally and physically disabled children from disadvantaged homes.

The many documented long term benefits that the disabled gain from horse riding include:

  • Improved motor development
  • Enhanced concentration and reduced hyperactivity
  • Decreased mental rigidity
  • Language development

 Mrs Sally Kluth, owner of the Chilanga School for the Disabled, is a qualified SANEF and British Horse Society (BHS) instructor and has been teaching riding for more than sixty years, forty of these at Chilanga. A South African Dressage Champion herself, Sally has trained several champions through the years. Since the beginning of her teaching career, Mrs Kluth has taught special needs riders.

The over 200 children that come to Chilanga weekly are proof of her dedication to all riders. These special needs riders are taught free of charge as many of them come from disadvantaged homes. The children have daily lessons at Chilanga. The school is based in Somerset West.
