Kendre Allies was a crook for a while. By his own admission he was the school bully and a member of the Americans gang. But when he left school in Grade 10 he had the luck to land a job as a stable hand at the Oude Molen riding school.
Allies was healed and inspired by working with horses and today he owns the school, has 38 horses and is a beacon of hope in an urban environment which is harsh for both kids and horses alike. Without other sources of funding, or worthy volunteers, he is driven by an abiding love of horses and nature to giving back. All rather
awe-inspiring.
