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.

Amy

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.

What's included

Drinks
Cold Bottled Water at the end of the ride.
Equipment
Moon bag pouches for your phone etc.

Our location will be sent upon booking. We have no tar roads on our farm, & there are other animals, not just horses, please be vigilant whilst driving. Once guests arrive, we will introduce ourselves & proceed to our Tack room, with the necessary gear for the ride. The horses will be prepped & ready. One quick run through with introductions to the animals & safety measures. Once guests are comfortable we will set out on the trail ride.
