Enjoyable ride

Good easy ride with the owner of the stables. The owner pitched the ride just right for the two of us at different levels of ability. A great way to view the countryside.

My travel companion and I enjoyed our ride with Paradise Stables so thoroughly; it was a top highlight of our whole trip to South Africa. Jolinda was a gracious, funny, informative guide. The wineries we visited were lovely. Everyone's horses were so agreeable and calm. And best of all the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. Thanks, Paradise, for an afternoon in... More

We were greeted by Jolinda who was an exceptional host and guide. Jolinda was able to cater for beginners and those with riding experience. The two wineries that we visited were well selected and were the cherry on top of a perfect excursion.

We were greeted enthusiastically by the owner of the stables and were soon saddled up and on our way! We were a group of novice riders with one experienced rider in the group and the horses were all perfect for each one of us - they are all endurance horses and looked to be well loved and cared for! We... More

My family were joined with some friends and we all enjoyed a lovely late afternoon ride. The sun going down on one side and the moon visible on the other of the mountains. Fabulous views which we could enjoy whilst riding lovely horses that were sure footed and comfortable to ride. We enjoyed some lovely canters through the countryside. A... More

Was in the area and had a day off, love riding and wine tasting, this was perfect. The horses are well looked after and safe, sure footed and happy. If you are a good rider and are flexible, when you ring or email try and ask if you can go on a ride with other experienced. We were very lucky,... More

While in Franschhoek this past January, my husband and I joined a winery tour one morning through Paradise Stables. This was the highlight of our time in this region. The views were absolutely stunning, and we rode through a variety of terrain which made the ride all the more exciting. Our group leader (and group) were fabulous! We stopped at... More

The best part of our stay in Franschhoek! We were not experienced riders but got a lot out of this trip! Cannot do anything but recommend the service, the horses and the wineries! You get to ride a lot and the views are spectacular! Wau!

Visited paradise stables whilst holidaying in SA. The horses were in a great condition and even though I'm not a confident rider I felt very safe on them. My sister who is a very proficient rider also enjoyed the tour. We went in the morning which I think was the better option as was cooler. The wines we tasted were... More
