The farm you’ll be headed to for your experience is four kilometers from the False Bay coast and is embraced by the Hottentots-Holland and Helderberg Mountains. Once you arrive at the gorgeous farm, you head over to the stables. You’ll spend a few moments chatting about which horse you’ll have the privilege of riding. You get more excited when you watch the animals get prepped and saddled. The professional guides will assess your riding capabilities and fit you with a helmet. Once horses are paired with their riders, you walk to the mounting block. Feel the excitement build as you swing your leg over to sit snuggly on the saddle.
For saftey, the guides take you through a short crash course on how to move with your horse, how to go in a different direction and once you succeed in this and feel comfortable; you’ll begin your trail with the guides leading the horses on the path.
There are many different trails you can take depending on how experienced you are; so you can go steeper, longer and even trot. But the trail is at a walking pace for those still getting the hang of riding the horse.
The farm is stunning and it stretches out towards the Hottentots-Holland and Helderberg Mountain ranges, a perfect view atop your perch. You can watch the different colours of the land stretch around you in stunning shades of greens and browns, you’ll also be able to spot the False Bay coastline as you go steeper.
The very helpful guide will point out the many picnic spots you can choose from and then at the end of your trail, you dismount your gentle giant and get comfortable on the blanket set out on the lush grass with your eyes going wide with all that is on offer. Stretching out your stiff legs and delving into the variety of delectable snacks and a choice of enjoying the farm’s very own wine, or a different choice of refreshment.
