One of my favourate activities. The horses are the stars of this show. They are well trained and absolutely bomb proof. I don't ride often and I felt confident from the get go. The forest is breathtaking. Rustic, laid back and thoroughly enjoyable.

It was us (family of four, kids aged 6 and 9) and a youngish couple. We didn't get beyond a walk because the couple were pregnant and didn't want to trot. 2 hours at walking pace is not so great - be aware you will be going at the pace of the weakest rider therefore, and if you don't know... More

Hi Jon D, Terribly sorry you thought it was a "dull ride". Bookings are made according to experience of riders for Safety reasons. As you mentioned, u are "not very experienced" thus you were accommodated as a "not very experienced" group. We do encourage trotting and cantering on all rides for all levels of experience but do have to take... More

I had been to two other places before (on the Garden Route and in the Drakensberg mountains) but this 3 hour ride was definitely the best experience. Beautiful woodlands, very good and well cared for horses, and a very friendly guide. We, a group of 3, did also a lot of cantering which we enjoyed a lot.

Our guide was brilliant and took such great care of us. The forest is a stunning place to ride,... More

We booked a ride on Sunday. I rode on the back of the beautiful Rain and my husband rode Maximus. What beautiful horses. The trail we went on was stunning. We tried a trot and a gallop but we were first time horse riders and didn't manage too well. The guide was amazing. He helped us along nicely and we... More
