Thank you to Peter for making our ride so enjoyable and informative. The horses are incredibly well behaved and the ride is suitable for all levels of experience. The views are fantastic and the wine tasting well received. It was one of our lasting memories of the holiday and a real highlight.

What a crazy sounding idea that in reality was actually really well organised, included trekking through some breathtakingly beautiful Franschhoek countryside and include just the right amount of wine tasting so as to keep me from falling off my horse. Our guide, Yollanda, was lovely, friendly and just a pleasure to ride with a we had just a wonderful time.... More

The horses here are mainly endurance and all Arab breeds. Completely calm but can have some fun if you know how to ride. We left at 1.40pm and got back after 6pm the time went very quick we saw some fab views in the valley , through the wine lands an up on the mountain. Great day lovely guide and... More

Combining horses with wine is always going to be a winner for me but Paradise Stables do it SO well. The Arab horses are beautiful, in fabulous condition and impeccably behaved. Yes, they know the route backwards but if you are a rider, they are responsive and follow commands - they don't just plod along. Equally, the two beginners on... More

Great ride through the hills and down onto some awesome vineyards tasting wines,chatting and just enjoying the beautiful countryside. Highly recommend this activity. You do not have to be a great rider or even haven ridden its all easy peasey.

My friend and I , plus another couple, spent four fantastic hours with Yolander (our amazing friendly guide) riding through some stunning countryside. The horses are beautifully kept and very well trained and responsive. The stables are well managed and everything is ready when you arrive. Very friendly owner, good banter! We were matched to the horses suitable for our... More

We were a party of three who had booked the trip via email sometime ago, however in fairness due to some confusion with some of the emails we arrived 15 minutes late, unfortunately this set a very negative tone from the outset with the instructor, who was a blonde haired girl (she never gave us her name!.)

We had a great afternoon out with our guide! We rode Kumara and Al-Bahrein and went to Rickety Bridge and Mont Rochelle. It was great because it was just the two of us so we were able to canter a fair bit! :) Our lady guide (she will have to forgive me, I forgot her name).. was very friendly and... More

We arrived at the stables quite early so we had a chance to look around and check out some of the horses. We were a group of four (three experienced and me, the inexperienced one), joined by two separate couples to make a group of eight. Peter and Yolandi helped us to find suitable horses and I ended up with... More

Our experience left me a bit bewildered about how everything was handled, first of all, you had to sign their "log book" and tick if you are "experienced" or "inexperienced".... That only meant the less experienced got slower or older horses....and seconds later you were on a horse. 2 from our group of 8 have been on horses before and... More
