Each year Specialist Advanced Equine Dentist, Steve Clark, visits the 7 horses at Three Trees. After administering a mild sedative, whilst the horse is still standing, the dentist gets to work with his array of equipment. Balancing the horses teeth in his mouth not only helps him with feeding, but also prevents any secondary muscular problems that may arise due to an unbalanced mouth. Observing the procedure is like watching an artist transforming a canvas. After this visit we miraculously watched the condition in 2 of our new geldings improve tremendously, since they were now able to chew their food properly. #equinedentistryservices

Three Trees staff were treated to a trip to the coast for their “end of year” Christmas party this year. After a long drive and early start, breakfast was enjoyed on the beach at sunrise. Staff were then transported to the harbour where the #eLan Catamaran was waiting for them for a 3 hour bay cruise out at sea. Mesmerised by the beauty of the city from the ocean, some of them seeing the sea for the first time. On arrival back on land, a guided tour of the famous Moses Mabhida soccer stadium was arranged. What a great experience for all!
A mutual love of the environment & education brought an American visitor, Cheryl Grace together with Cheryl Blackburn (owner of Three Trees) & Nature Guide, Elijah Mbonane. Together they will work on transforming a derelict piece of land adjacent to the Royal Natal Park into an Environmental Education Centre for children.
