Nice horses, clearly well loved and cared for. We had Texas, Tallahassee and Chenook - all great. Riding is mostly through vineyards, fields and fruit orchards, perfect tracks for cantering. Nice comfortable trail saddles. Only down side was the walk by the side of a busy road for a few hundred yards. The road needs to be crossed to get to the vineyards, crossing is not a problem but it would be good if you could come out on one side and cross immediately without having to walk beside it. Our guide, Ellen was knowledgeable and good company - also knows her wines!

Absolutely fantastic. All off-road with a great mix of walk, trot, canter and even gallop (depending on your horse :-)). The pace was perfectly set by my guide Ellen, and tailored to maximise the rider's experience without compromising the horses' welfare and fitness. There's clearly a great deal of care that goes into keeping the horses happy and healthy, which isn't always the case on riding holidays. That was really wonderful to see.

I was matched with three fantastic horses - two on my first two days who basically chauffeured me, allowing me to really drink in the stunning scenery. On my third and final day, I was lucky enough to find my South African soulmate - a gorgeous little fellow with a zest for life and turn of pace that belied his small stature and had me grinning from ear to ear. I knew very quickly I'd be back again, but he really sealed the deal.

I absolutely loved the riding here. The horses were extremely fit and there are a wide range of horses to suit all abilities. I said I liked fast horses, so I enjoyed riding the endurance trained horses. There were loads of opportunities for fast riding and a lot of galloping up hills. It is not often you get to gallop on horseback holidays. There were also stunning views from the saddle and we rode in South African trail/endurance saddles, which I found extremely comfortable.
