Great fun with stable and steady horses - maybe better for novice riders to get advice before leaving the stable though !

Pieter took my husband and I out on the wine tour, an interesting and accomplished host with exquisite Arabian horses, truly a pleasure with wine thrown in, what more can you ask? Thanks.

We had a morning horse riding wine estate tour while we stopped by in Franschhoek on honeymoon at the beginning of September. Our trip was so so much fun and the horses were great. The lady (sorry I forget her name) who took us out was fantastic and so lovely to spend the morning with. We had a lovely time... More

My husband and I visited the Paradise Stables while on our honeymoon in South Africa as we wanted to do something a little bit different!! This was such a memorable experience and we would recommend it to anybody. Neither of us had ridden before but this was not a problem, we felt safe and well looked after the whole time!... More

This was the best horse back ride I have ever had anywhere and it all had to do with the quality of the horses - arabians. For a group horse ride, the animals obviously have to be very tame, which often means non-responsive, but my horse was excellent. The ride went through beautiful wine country, up and over hills and... More

This is a super spot to go before breakfast while in Franschhoek. Go at 7.30 and you will be back in time for breakfast. Its a 4 min drive from the Hugenot Museum. The owner's family has been on the farm since 1830 and Pieter is a great host. The horses are in great shape. Its applicaple to all levels... More

We booked this because we wanted to do something to remember the stay by. The stables were easy to find and before long we were mounted up and on our way with 2 other riders plus the 2 staff members. My partner and I had not been on a horse for many many years but the staff seemed rather complacent... More

We used this stable two years ago twice, and we returned this year and used them again, great staff, friendly and knowledgable, Yolonde the lady who was there two ago took us again this year, she is fantastic. The wine tasting was an added bonus.

Excellent way to travel slowly over the hills around Franschhoek prior to a couple of stop offs for some pleasant wine tasting. The horses were calm, knew the route and well in control of their riders! We were in a smal group, and it was pleasant to mix with other travellers for a few hours. The staff were helpful and...

We absolutely loved the tour of wine country on horseback. We road over the mountain and back while stopping at two wineries one the way. The weather was really excellent which makes the views absolutely stunning. My wife used to ride horses a lot so this experience really brought her back to those times. This along with the scenery and... More
