Jo Lister of Horse About took us on a ride through the Tulbagh valley we will never forget, she knows the area like the back of her hand, she was able to make our ride relaxing, interesting and exciting all in one. She pointed out the eagles swooping and showed us an owls nest where babies had hatched, my daughter was so animated. The horses are gentle and forgiving of our novice riding and our ride was made all the more special by the glass of wine at our stop where we witnessed the most amazing view which was bathed in an amazing pink light as it was just before sunset. I would highly recommend this wonderful activity but it Jo and her horses that make it really special, we are definately going back for more.

In the late evening we took leisurely horse back ride through the vineyards. At the top vineyard we enjoyed a drink while the full moon rose above the mountains lighting up the Tulbagh valley. Then, by the light of the moon we rode down to the paddock. It's an amazing feeling riding a horse in the moonlight.

I have been out to ride with Jo and John a few times now, including a magical moonlight ride one evening. The horses are superbly behaved and if you are confident enough with riding you can even get to have a few canters. The drinks stop is a must and the views are breath taking. Highly recommended if you are visiting the area.

My boyfriend and I had a lovely time with Jo, John Spike & of course the Horses.
It was a great day away from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town. The 2 hour ride included beautiful landscapes and a stunning sunset. We were matched perfectly with our Horses and cant wait to visit again when we return to South Africa. A great thing to do if you want to venture away from Cape Town for a day or two or.....

We thoroughly enjoyed our 1 hour outride with the whole family at Horse About, the owners John and Jo matched us perfectly with the right horses. The trails and scenery are simply breathtaking throughout the ride. Highly recommended
