Description

A little more time and energy is well spent on this half-day ride. Enjoy a half-day Horse Trail and Wine Tasting on horseback and Michelle’s choice of Winery, in South Africa’s most celebrated Franschhoek wine valley. A unique way to explore the area, this adventurous trail takes you through the working farm and vineyards, climbing up into the mountainous area ending up at our spectacular viewpoint. From there we make our way back down for wine tasting at one of our acclaimed Wine Estates. One or two tastings can be arranged on this ride, but we do prefer to spend more time in the saddle however. We will contact you for your chosen preference before the ride. Our expert guides adjust the group’s pace according to your riding experience and skill, always considering horse and rider safety.

Whether you are an experienced rider wanting a fast and exhilarating canter down open farm tracks and mountain passes, or just a novice wanting a relaxing meander on a steady horse to get a different perspective of the magnificent scenery, you will have a great experience. We take care in pairing the most suitable horse to the rider’s skill level to ensure you have a comfortable ride guaranteed to leave you invigorated.

Want to mark a special occasion? Whether it’s a marriage proposal, corporate team building or just a group of friends wanting a different kind of day out, we’ll put together a memorable day ride set against the magnificent Great Drakenstein Mountains and full of local flavour. Day rides make a great birthday gift too!

Friends and family are welcome to spend time at Lust Bistro & Bakery.

The venue is open for early breakfast, lunch, tapas and everything in between. The food at this Franschhoek Winelands restaurant is honest, abundant and delicious with an emphasis on simplicity and seasonal ingredients. It also pairs magnificently with our finest wines.

Notes:

Any riders arriving late will forfeit time out of their booking. A minimum of 2 riders is required for a ride to go out. Group size limited to 15 riders. For larger parties, please contact us so we can accommodate your needs. No under 8’s on horses. This service is weather dependent. All of our trails are led by experienced guides, ensuring a safe and memorable experience. We are conscious about the environment, we respect nature and adhere to strict operating guidelines to protect the amazing space we operate in.

We do not allow any rider over 95kg on a horse, or any rider over 110kg on a quad bike, and reserve the right to put a rider on a scale should we feel that they are over the weight limit.  If you are over the weight limit when making the booking you will not be liable for a refund.

The Horse Drawn Carriage is a great option for persons over 100kg, but we do need to be notified in advance to ensure there is space on our carriage.

All riders are required to wear a helmet. Helmets are tight fitting; please note that wigs or extensions can cause the helmets to not fit. Therefore, we request that all riders have their hair in a practical hairstyle when coming for horse or quad bike riding as no one will be allowed out without a helmet. If you have any concerns about the above restriction, we recommend booking a carriage ride and/or a glamorous photoshoot instead.
