Take a ride on the outer edge of the Helderberg sub-region, closest to The Atlantic Ocean and enjoy the indiginous fynbos and beautiful scenery the Hottentots-Holland and Helderberg Mountain ranges creates.
As you arrive at the stables you will be greeted by the friendly guides. Once your riding capabilities are discussed, you’ll be fitted with a helmet and paired off with the perfect horse. Once you are seated atop the horse, you’ll be taken around for a short crash course on how to move comfortably; how to get the horse to move with you in certain directions, how to move your body in ways that the horse will understand what you ask of him/her. Once you feel ready, the real fun begins with a ninety minute trail ahead.
The various trails available, depending on your riding experience, will astonish you with their steep paths and their breath-taking views of the mountain and vineyards stretched out around you. On your trail, when you’ve reached the steeper point of the trail you will experience the powerful backdrop against which the valley descends into the stables, vineyards and finally onto the scenic coastline of False Bay. Depending on your riding ability; the trail can be done at a walking pace with the guides leading the horses or at a trotting pace for those who know their way around a horse.
There are many spots for a picnic so it’s up to the two of you to agree on one. With a blanket to sit on and a variety of delectable snacks to decide on are provided. You’ll also have the choice between enjoying this feast with the farm’s very own wine or your choice of refreshment. There isn’t a time constraint with how long you enjoy the picnic, so you can stretch out and enjoy the scenery around you; while talking about all the best parts of your horse-ride.
Be sure to take along your camera to capture those stunning views and a few selfies with your horse.
