Shepherd's Fold stables is the ideal place to go and enjoy nature on well mannered and sweet horses, who are all fat and happy. The trails are fun and you will be looked after well by your guide. Definitely worth going to for a different experience!

We did a 1 hour trail ride on a Sunday afternoon. The stables are clean and well kept. The staff are friendly and very professional. My teenage son was a first time rider and I had not ridden for years. The horses were selected for our experience level and size. Our guide was great, making sure that we were ok with the pace and I felt very safe. Being a first ride for my son, we started out slowly but managed to do some trotting as well. The horses were well behaved and responsive. Even when face with a loose barking dog and noisy aeroplanes, they took it all in their stride. It was lovely to be out in the veld on a warm winter's afternoon, with the unique smell of warm leather and horses. There is also a small cafe on the premises to pick up something to drink afterwards. Thanks to everyone at Shepherd's Fold for a lovely time.

My daughter and I had such a lovely morning outride. I hadn’t been on a horse in years and this ride was a perfect way to reignite the passion , spend some QT with her and not be too stiff to walk the following day. Thanks so much !!

The ride was absolutely amazing and the service was great too. My friends and I ran an hour late and they were very accommodating. The guides were very helpful. However, a decent reception area/seating area would be great. Refreshments sold on site would also be much appreciated.

A horse-riding facility offering short 1-2 hour trips on horseback, and weekly horse-riding lessons as well. Was my first time on a horse, and I really loved the experienced. I went on a 1 hour ride on an open veld, with a guide who was walking with my horse and I the whole time to ensure that the horse didn't decide to do its own thing and run away with me on its back. Each horse gets a guide to walk with, and the main tour guide leads the pack of horses on the tour. Was good to be closer to the tour guide as we could ask questions throughout the trip - not so much if you and your horse were at the back of the single file line. They make sure that they give you a horse suited to your height, weight and riding experience. Really good experience, even in the cold weather. Worth another visit in the middle of summer, when the land has come alive again.

We did the two-hour ride through the countryside. Both of us are beginner riders and the team was very patient and accommodating. Special thanks to Witness who took care of my very nervous friend the whole way. Nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Very bad service, they do not put the customer first. They instead take your money without even giving you a chance to allow a rebook, especially during a case of an unforseen circumstance.

Very friendly people, place was easy to find. Horses are in excellent condition and well cared for. Had a lovely ride in the countryside with my daughter and a guide by the name of Watson. Can definitely recommend doing the trail ride. I will be back to do it again. Absolute value for money.
