Customer Reviews

My daughter and I signed up for the 1 hour ride - so worth it. My daughter is an experienced rider and I am not - the group leader was very experienced and made sure the horse and rider were well matched. The scenery and magnificent fynbos above Stanford Hills is amazing. I highly recommend. - Mark

It was an amazing experience. We are not experienced riders and it was my 8 year old son's first ride on a horse. We received a very friendly welcome and were introduced to the well behaved horses. The mountain route is beautiful with amazing views of the area. It is a very relaxed ride and I will highly recommend it. I am definitely going again. - Matthys
