Welcome to Amado

At AMADO we strive to inspire and lift young and old with special needs back into the saddle of life, with the healing power of horses.

When you cannot help yourself in and out of the bathtub but you can control a huge horse, the ache of  daily struggles fade.

You gain self-confidence and feel on top of the world.


Amado’s Home is in the heart of Paarl, near Cape Town, South Africa.


Amado’s Mission is to change lives shackled with sadness to lives filled with happiness.
We create awareness of the achievable that will overcome injustice.


Amado’s Vision is to influence everyone to look past so-called norm, image and intellectual ability and to treat others
with love and respect.

We need your help to continue creating miracles, so even the most modest donation will be appreciated. Amado is a registered non- profit organization so tax and Corporate social investment benefits do apply.
