About horse riding

We have various well-schooled horses perfect for both beginners and advanced riders. Different levels of skill in a singular group are welcome, riders with similar riding experiences are grouped together, and each group will do parts of the trail with their own guide. Throughout the ride, we will journey alongside a variety of tractor routes, mountain climbs, and open areas for a good canter. The mountain areas offer breathtaking views so it is recommended to take the 2-hour ride to get to the top of Paarl Mountain for the best possible view.
