Experience Required



A love of horses and outdoor lifestyle. Beginner, novice and advanced riders are accepted.

* 18 to 20 year olds, just finished school and taking some time to work out what they would like to do with their lives.

* 20 -25 year olds, finished study and are taking the gap to travel before "real life" starts!

* 25 years and over - Career Breaks - usually a shorter stay, riders wanting a great experience and time to get into horses and do lots of riding.

Many of our riders of all different ages and back grounds come to us to spend time learning more about horses and their care. So many riders can get on and ride, but have no idea of what goes on before and after and are so surprised to find that each horse has his or her own personality.

An excellent opportunity for Equestrian Collage/Vet students who require a period of work experience for their studies.

A perfect first place to stay before exploring the rest of South Africa!
