Our Horses

These are our horses, there are 13 of them here with us on the farm. We constantly rescue and rehabilitate. We do know that our prices are slightly above other places, but our working horses need to feed those that arrived here in dire need. So, by paying an extra R50-R100 (in comparision to other trail businesses), you help us to save abused/neglected/sick horses. (You are welcome to ask me anytime for an update of the horse you rode, or the one that left a major impression on you!) You will be paired with one of them depending on your, and the horses riding experience. Have a look through their pictures and descriptions and see who you would like to ride and let us know when you book.

Kiara – Mama’s girl

14 years old
Lead mare

Kiara, the witch (but don’t tell her that), is my lead mare and only ridden by me or Neo. She can be very aloof but is the fast and furious on the trail.

Haakim – Kiara’s Brother

14 years old
Carries weight up to 70kg

A treat for the experienced rider, Haakim is gentle, sensitive and calm(for being an Arab) and mostly not nervous. He needs a rider with confidence that allows him the opportunity to explore and be on a long rein, but can be ridden even by beginners.


Mixed breed
18 years old
Carries weight up to 50kg

Good old boy, loves to follow and knows his job, great for kids and light weight adults. Don’t mistake his short legs for stumps as this boy can have speed. Like most older people its his way or no way.


Spicy SimoneArab x boerperd
15 years old
Carries weight up to 70kg

Angel can make beginners feel safe, giving experienced riders some fun. She is sensitive, responsive and very comfortable.



12 years old

Carries up to 75kg

Sherlock is very opinionated, doesn’t like young riders and will test you. An highly intelligent boy with a lovely nature, only suited for experienced, yet gentle riders.




7 years old

Carries up to 75kg

Another very special boy that we rescued. He prefers lady riders due to his past. Has super lovely gates and tons of fun. Should be ridden by intermediate riders that don’t bounce too much on his back.


Victoria Plumb – aka Floppy Ears

Friesian x Boerperd
5 years old
On a mayor holiday due to an injury.

Brillant beginners girl, totally in her own world, at leisure following along. The more energetic rider can get her into 4th and 5th gear, so don’t think she is lazy. Her motto: you want me to work, so you need to do the same! (And she doesn’t mean it badly.)



Nooitgedacht cross

4 years old

Carries up to 60kg

Franky just comes out of training and ridden by me only so far. He will not be available for clients until winter minimum.


Frisian cross

15 years old

Carries up to 85kg

Arwyn is a rescue and has only recently put on weight. We just started with her now, she will soon be available for beginner clients.



Percheron cross 

3 years old

This gorgeous boy is still unhandled and untrained, of course also a rescue. We are hoping that he will join us for Easter on the trails, for the experienced rider then. Will become a weight carrier.



Clydesdale cross

6 years old

She is our latest rescue and also still untrained and not handled. Just as Arthur, we are hoping to welcome her to the trails in Easter. Of course then also just for the experienced rider at first, but will become a weight carrier.
