Customer Reviews

Thank you for this amazing opportunity to explore your farm on horse-back. Experience services and a good safety protocol. We really enjoyed the time - Juan

We enjoyed our outrides. The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and comfortable around us and the horses. The horses picked for us had the right temperament for our skill level. We loved that we could trot (not something that is often allowed with these types of trips). It was one of the best outrides I have done. Thank you Randall (our guide) and African Horse Company. - Lizette

It was my first time and it was magical. - Miliswa

We had a wonderful experience in the beautiful Overberg mountains. The white stallion (I think his name is Peppi), is an energetic one, and occasionally liked to stop and eat some pink "Sewejaartjies" on the way. Beautiful location, and a very experienced guide! Looking forward to returning and doing the beach route. - Christoff

I did a 60 minute mountain ride with my 10 year old daughter and 3 of her friends, for her birthday. We were a mix of experienced and novice riders, and we all loved it. A really beautiful route on eager but well-behaved horses, and a great guide. - Tamsyn
