What you'll do

GOOD FOR THE 'BEGINNER, NOVICE, INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED' RIDER First an introduction to the horses where I can match horse to rider. Then under my guidance a hands on grooming session. Then we 'tack up' or put the saddle and bridle on your horse. You then get onto your horse where I make final adjustments ensuring that you and your horse are comfortable. I make sure that you are confident in the training ring and can start, stop and steer. After that it's an out ride up the old wagon trail on the hill and into the forestry plantation where I have the only permit to take people on horse rides. This is tailored for your individual needs and goes at a pace that is suitable for the riders involved. It encompasses going up and down hills and crossing a stream or two. The dogs also get to come along. This usually takes approximately two hours. The horse rides are amazing as you get to form a relationship with your horse while admiring surrounding nature. A getaway filled with awesome experiences, beautiful scenery and special memories. When we get back we take the equipment off our horses and then they have some treats before letting them out to graze in the fields

Caroline

I own Stormy Hill horse trails in the Natal midlands, South Africa where I have been guiding guests on horse rides for many years. Most of my horses have been bred at Stormy Hill and I do all the handling and training from when they are foals to when they blossom into fully fledged trail horses. I am passionate about animals and also have seven rescue dogs who enjoy accompanying us out on rides. I also teach general horse handling from grooming a horse to ground work and backing. This is on natural horsemanship methods and English style riding.
