I went on the 2 hour ride with my Boyfriend for my birthday was just the 2 of us with Sam our guide and the dog.It was really nice to get out somewhere different and so close to town you dont have to go too far to be in the bush.

We started off 2012 by going on a sundowner ride with Sam, I can't think of a more fun way to begin this new year! Sam is incredibly knowledgeable and has a wonderful way of summing up the best horse/rider combination so that you are left feeling very comfortable and confident in yourself and your horse for the ride. Breathtaking... More

I stayed with Sam for the start of my time in Namibia. On the first day of riding we did a 6 hour mountain ride. It was absolutely stunning, As we got higher up the mountain, the views got better and better! Sam was a great host, so friendly and she know's her horses inside out. It was very interesting...

Sam(antha) for a lovely braai,( barbecue) in the middle of nowhere, everything fresh and prepared with love. Next day... More

When I came back from a round trip throughout the country I had couple of days in Windhoek and no idea what to do. Only 20km outside the city of Windhoek, Equitrails seemed to be perfect to discover the countryside on horseback and so I went for a 1-hrs ride. Travelling without a car wasn’t a problem - Samantha, the... More

Had a fantastic ride with a great guide in the mountains close to Windhoek. The scenery is spectacular, the horses very safe and strong and the people very friendly. if you have a few hours to spare, this is the thing to do. Does not matter if you are a beginner or not, you will enjoy this. Next time I... More

Very nice horses loads of fun for experienced riders and also for inexperienced riders (a friend) galloping up the hills with horses in very good condition. The owner is very nice and relaxed.
