We offer magnificent horse trails and activities in the Western Cape. Just over an hour from Cape Town, situated in the majestic Witzenberg Valley, we are conveniently located between the towns of Tulbagh, Wolseley and Ceres.

Join us to experience a soul-restoring horseback adventure, suitable for all levels and abilities. Our trail rides can be tailored to suit everyone. From supervised pony rides for the little ones to half day and full day trails for experienced riders.

If you enjoy more active horseback adventures, or would like to advance your riding skills, ask about our riding lessons, gymkhana and speed event training.

Dont miss our spectacular Sunset and Moonlight trail rides.

If you are celebrating a special event or just a great day out, let us arrange a delicious picnic as part of your horseback outing.
We offer various horse riding trail options which can include local wine tastings, sample award winning olive oils and possibly a delectable chocolate tasting to sweeten your way. Or simply join us for a leisurely horseback meander while you ride amongst fynbos, vineyards and working farms.

Trust, respect and discipline are vital elements in any partnership and form the essential foundations of our training methods with our horses.
Our horses live as naturally as possible in a herd environment and large paddocks with lots of space to move, as nature intended.

A lack of confinement, living within a herd hierarchy and correct handling ensures willing and trusting partners.

Our group sizes are small (max of 8 people with 2 guides) allowing us to give each guest personalised attention throughout the ride.
Safety for both horse and rider are our priorities which is why we need to know about your riding experience, weight and height.

All our horse riding trails include instruction and helmets.

I can definitely recommend a horse experience with John, Jo, family and other animals. The pace is set by the level of competency of the riders. The horses are well trained and loads of fun, each with their own personality and not a single bored school pony in sight. The equipment is well maintained and the riding terrain simply sublime.

I truly had the most amazing day out! Jo and John took me and my 4 year old twins out on the most amazing ride along the mountain range just outside Tulbagh. Me being slightly hesitant at first (I am a novice rider....) was a converted horse lover at the end of our trip. Needless to say that Jo and John effortlessly looked after my little boys and the slightly nervous mum. They have such vast experience, great patience and confidence with horses which was so important to me when I decided to take my still rather small boys out with me. They managed to teach my boys and myself the basics of riding which enabled us to have such a great family day out. The views were amazing and the horses just adorable. I cannot wait to get back on in the saddle for another memorable day and would recommend anyone (with or without kids) to do the same.
