      Fantastic relaxed morning on the horses, beautiful scenery
      We loved the horse ride through the mountains and had such a great morning on the horses. The scenery was surprisingly diverse and very beautiful. Helmut is a nice guy, who clearly cares for the area. He made the ride very relaxing and enjoyable, even for a beginner rider.

      Should do loads of fun
      It was a nice calm tour. The guide was very helpful and good with children. We went through the fynbos and went in between wine grapes.

      Horses at Service
      The African Horse Company has a vast arrays of possible rides and experiences. I have talked with those who know-- and I look forward to taking my granddaughter of 15 whenever we can arrange a transatlantic flight over. I am also aware that Howard makes access to his horses available to special learning children so they can make contact and have a personal touch with a horse. Very exciting to say the least. Bravo to Howard for his service.

      Beautiful Horses and Ride
      We did a family ride through the mountains of Stanford. Randall was an excellent guide and host. Our kids loved every moment of the ride. The horses are really well groomed and trained. The temperament of the horses was well suited to a family ride.

      Amazing!
      I'm a quiet experienced horserider myself. But I have had a severe accident at high speed a few years ago, and I'm scared at very high speed. The 2 guys who were with me on the tour could cross over the beach, the guide did really care about me and stayed a little behind with me so I could canter on a more steady speed. It made my experience wonderfull! I have never been horseriding on the beach and I loved it, thanks to my wonderfull guide! But experience is required!

    My dad and I did the 2hr mountain ride with Howard. What a lovely experience to be in the foothills surrounded by glorious fynbos. Beautiful and peaceful. Our horses Patches and Pico were well behaved and sure footed. There are opportunities for experienced riders to trot and canter. A highlight of our visit to Stanford.
