I have to say - I was concerned that I would be bored after a few days - nothing could be further from the truth. I had a magical, amazing, delightful, wonderful trip. I rode several amazing horses. I loved the canters, the wanders, the trot moments - everything. As I read the reviews I realize so many people say... More

Sad to return home such a wonderful place ideal for all singles, couples and families. My husband did not plan to ride just relax but second day in Laura had him in the saddle and he rode every day not bad for a none rider. We met some fabulous people to and made some new friends. The accommodation was excellent... More

I've just returned home after a fantastic 6 nights at Horizon Horseback. If only it could have been longer. The staff are all so friendly that they make you feel at ease and at home from the moment you arrive. The guides are fun, knowledgeable and careful to make sure that everyone is comfortable with the pace of each ride.... More

We watched the video on the site so many times, we could not believe it would be that good. It wasn't. IT WAS BETTER!!! miles miles better!! You can't put on a video the feeling of lying in your roundhouse on the lawn (with equally enormous roundhouse ensuite) listening to the hippos grunting out on the lake at night, the... More

Just returned from a fantastic week with Laura and Shane at Horizon and what a fabulous time we have had on our first trip to South Africa. Shelley had an awesome Out of Africa horse riding experience with Zebra, Giraffe, Hippo, Puff Adders and not forgetting lots of Hogwarts! Supported by some great guides Kirsty, Joanna, Jen, Babs, Lucas, Shingi,... More

My 11 year old daughter and I have just returned from a 10 day stay with Horizon. There are not enough superlatives to describe how much fun we had on this holiday. Everything about the whole experience was fantastic: horse welfare, people, food, accommodation, location etc. We made a video of our stay to relive some of the Horizon magic... More

I stayed at horizon as a lone traveller. I had an absolutely wonderful time there. The transfers they arranged ran smoothly and the drivers (Steve and Abraham) were wonderfully welcoming and chatred about the area. I was greeted by a volunteer who checked me in and had even saved me some lunch! I was on a horse riding around the... More

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
