What you'll do

Upon arrival, we will take our clients to the tack room where we will fit a suitable riding hat & fill in all the necessary indemnity forms, with passport Nr. or ID. numbers.

The guest can make use of moon bag belts that can take most cellphone sizes should they want to take photos along the way. Any other Valuables such as Car keys etc. can be stored in the tack room while out on the ride.

The scenic trail ride admits 1-4 people per ride. The client's skill levels should be some previous riding experience (basic walk, trot, canter), and simply relaxed around horses. We will introduce our language of communication with our horses to the clients & reassure to them, that we will be in full control of the trail ride. We want the experience to remain pleasant, for our horses and the riders. Once we are satisfied that the horses are under the rider's influence we will set off, for a beautiful scenic ride on the farm.

These are the basic outlines of each of our packages – each session, however, will be tailored to how the clients & they horse progress during the experience – they are live animals & not machines & they respond differently to every human individual that they meet.

I have been working with horses for the last 20 odd years. After School, I studied advanced classical Dressage riding in Spain. I also worked in the UK and Scotland and furthered my studies there. On my return home to South Africa, I opened up a riding school. I also formed a committee to do local horse shows for children and adults. Currently, I follow training techniques that are based on scientific evidence & the horse’s welfare on all levels of interaction. My main focus is on holistic, horse-human interaction.

Lovely in nature experience on horse back amongst the pine trees and roaming cows, excited stallions and mares. Beautiful scenery on a crisp summers morning. A must around this area!

We had a brilliant time horse riding in the mountains of Swellendam. The horses were well trained and easy to ride, the views were amazing, as a horse rider who's been riding for several years it was was on the most beautiful rides I've ever gone on. Would highly recommend.

The farm is situated in a picturesque region and trial ride goes through the whole farm through the pine forest. It is so relaxing and you really feel at home on the farm. The farming activities is a milkery, with lots of cows along the route which really makes you feel the farm live. The company along the trial ride was awesome and we shared some stories about horses and knowledge. She really made me feel at home. A real break away weekend will typically include such a relaxing trial ride. Thank you I will come again when i pass through the area
