Just do it, you won't regret it. Picked up at the airport and transported to a place that feels like home and paradise combined. Pick your level, pick your horse and you're away: riding heaven. Breakfast in the sunshine, morning outride, fast or slow, you choose, in the bush, on the plains, along by the dams, home for a swim... More

I visitied Horizon in October 2014 and I spend a week there. I was a little nervous at first as I was on my own, but I was soon made to feel at home by the team at Horizon and the other guests. Everyone eats together and all hacks are group hacks (depending on ability - which is great as... More

I have just taken a group of ten riders, along with two non-riders, to Horizon who hosted us for the Waterberg Charity Ride. This pioneering expedition can't have been easy to set up but the Directors of Horizon, along with their experienced guides and staff, went to endless trouble to make it all a great success. They literally walked the... More

My boyfriend and I were taken on a ride into the bush. He is a novice rider but the instruction he received from Kirsty was really helpful and he was pleased to be able to learn rising trot. We rode within a couple of metres of grazing zebra, saw some kudo, were pointed out the different eagles and paddled at... More

Horizon is set in a beautiful location that immediately makes you feel relaxed, and is a real luxury stay, with friendly staff and happy horses. Shingai, Lucas and Silas are all great guides, and rides are varied and interesting, not set routes you have to do like in a lot of ranches. There is LOTS of cantering if you want... More

We had such a wonderful time at Horizon. The lodge staff and volunteers are wonderful. Shane and Laura are wonderful hosts and run a relaxed yet professional establishment. We arrived with our three kids (6, 8 and 11) and felt warm and welcomed. The staff was eager to connect with our kids and accommodated every need. Three of our group... More

Beautiful location and peaceful. The inside and outside areas are lovely and peaceful. Great food and accommodations. The staff and volunteers and other guests were all wonderful. Horseback riding was well planned and wonderful. P.S. Did I mention peaceful?

Easily one of the best experiences of my life. Truly a "bucket list" adventure for me and exceeded all expectations. Knowledgeable, professional and fun staff. Beautifully responsive, well schooled and lovely horses. Wonderful food, drink accommodation and service. Wouldn't change a thing. All fully enhanced by the surroundings. Don't think about it and don't wait to do this - it's... More

Where to begin...Prior to our trip we had a little hiccup with our travel planner - basically she went out of business 2 weeks prior to our departure and unfortunately took 95% of my groups money and never paid the lodges we would be staying at. Fortunately though, she had reserved the rooms and so our accommodations were still expecting... More
