Haven't you tried this before? you have missed something worth to try. This is not a cowboy film but real cowboy on your own in Entoto jungle. If you lucky you might see wild animals. I have seen them on two occations. Being in the compound by itself is very relaxing. I love this place.

A nice place to bring your kids or friends. They do not serve food, but they allow picnic, and even have a couple of tables and chairs. The stables are located in a big nice compound. So for those not into horse riding - it is nice to take a walk just in their compound. You can choose all kinds... More

The road up to Equus is pretty bumpy - you'll get the full African massage for the last few kms. I went for a 2 hour ride out - super little horse - small but very fast. I was on my own, so we just went riding across the plains for a few hours. If you only want to trot... More

You really should try this one. A great ride in the hills of Ethiopia. You might have a chance to see some of the wild life (animals such as: deers, gazels, rabbits, etc) when riding the horses. The view is spectacular and worth the ride. 2 hours of riding the horses should be plenty and enough if you are not... More

Imagine yourself galloping a beautiful horse across the Ethiopian plains and by the barley fields, or taking things slower through a stunning pine forest, up a small mountain to view a hyenas den from the cliffs above. We (myself, husband and friend) spent 2 and a half days with the Equus family and it was a real highlight of our... More

Superb experience by a professional team. You cannot miss this if you are in Addis! You will see the real Ethiopia and have fantastic views as well. Caters for all from complete beginners to experienced riders.

A full days trek - bargain price - and excellent day out. despite being a little bit saddle sore. But the views, landscape and experience well worth it!

I already went riding with them four times and each time I enjoyed it very much. A great afternoon escape from the busy city that Addis Ababa is. You can go for a two hour tour, a half day or full day and they even organize treks for more days too. If you follow the directions on their website it... More
