Garden Route horse riding at it’s best!   est 2008

Welcome to our Black Horse Trails website, we are Lyndsay and Stephan, with our kids Jazper & Tabby and the most lovely horses in the land!

At the base of the majestic Outeniqua mountains in the Wilderness, lies our little charming horse ranch, Black Horse Trails. We are a relaxed and friendly bunch with whom you can enjoy a precious few hours of your holiday time, in a true animal crazy environment.

The beautiful Friesian horse is our breed of choice for our trail riding due to their friendly, easy going temperaments and good manners.
We have suitable steeds for any level of experience you may or may not have on a horses back, everyone is welcome!
