Stunning scenery, although it can be difficult to talk as 90% of the time you are riding single-file. Still an incredible experience and the horses were very well behaved. I'd definitely come back.

It was our fourth time to Sleepy Hollow and unfortunately a lot of changes. They do not ride directly to the beach. We were riding along the neighborhood streets. Horses are scared about skate boards. The riding was nose to tail, not what we expected from our first visits to Sleepy Hollow. The guide seems not very confident, more a... More

We were two friends booking a beach ride together 10th of April. We are both semi-experienced. We expected a big group, but it was just us and our guide Maddy. We talked first about safety rules and experience before we got our horses. I got Maestro and my friend got Nutmeg. We were out for 2 hours, riding to the... More

After six years of visiting Cape Town for Christmas I finally got round to horseriding on Noordhoek - it was worth the wait! As a beginner the guides and staff were really friendly and accommodating and with a nice couple on the trip as well I had a really lovely afternoon! I've done a couple of beginner rides before but... More

My wife and I had never rode a horse before and our trepidation was quickly dissipated. Warm greetings and professionalism removed pre-riding anxieties. You are in good hands. Well equipped and well instructed . The horses are well trained and the guide Maddy was knowledgable, patient and has a passion for her job. The scenery was spectacular and the photos(which... More

We rode on a Saturday morning, a group of very mixed abilities. Th horses were super and both guides were fun and chatty. It did take a while to reach the beach, but it was no hardship. The girls split the ride, the less able ant for a walk almond the sae front while we more experienced had a trot... More

Some of the reviews on Sleepy Hollow were very negative, so I was hesitant to make a booking with them. It turned out all my concerns were redundant. I had a thirty minute private lesson before the beach ride. The instructor was very patient and friendly. The horse, Smarty, was well trained and good tempered. In total, a group of... More

My friends and I went on a beach ride here in November and it was fantastic. I used to own horses and so was given Jedi to ride, who was an absolute gentleman. My two friends had never ridden before and so they were given very gentle and easy-going horses and had no trouble controlling them. The horses are kept... More
