Fantastic experience. John truly has a passion for horses. One of our fellow riders has never been on a horse's back and was totally comfortable with the ride. Spectacular views, close to nature and pure bliss.

Lovely trail with an interesting mix of scenery and spectacular views. Nothing hectic but a fun ride on a sweet horse who definitely knows how to look after you. Really happy place with happy fur kids.

I went with my daughter and her friend - we are intermediate riders. John is an amazing guy - really knowledgeable and clearly loves all his horses. We had a beautiful ride with great horses - a truly special experience.

We had a great morning ride with Spike through the woods and wine yards around the farm. The horses are very well trained and after years of not riding it was easy for us to handle them. We loved how the horses are treated and trained with respect for the animal. Definitely a ‘Must-Do’ when in the area.

We are a family of 4, with 7 year old twins. Being mostly novice riders, we were a little apprehensive but John took charge and put us all at ease. We enjoyed the scenic trails and local knowledge shared by John. A great outing enjoyed by all. Highly recommended

Had a lovely Saturday morning spent on the 1.5hr trek, led by John. The trails take in some absolutely beautiful scenery. The horses are very well behaved and well cared for. Would recommend no matter what your previous experience with horses is - John & Jo will make sure you are matched with the right horse and are comfortable before you set out on the trails.

My sister and I had an exquisite morning riding out into the Witzenberg trail last Thursday. The horses are so well cared for and a delight to ride. I was really surprised at how much ride and enjoyment we got for a really affordable price.
John and Jo really know how to take care of their riders and the views were just spectacular.
We will definitely come for a another ride next time we visit Tulbagh.

We did a 2 hour trail along the base of the beautiful farm’s surrounding mountains. John and Jo clearly know what they are doing. Besides being a breathtakingly beautiful ride, we learnt a lot about their horses which area clearly very well looked after a cared for. Highly recommend!

We had the most amazing experience out in Tulbagh at the 'Horse about Trail' farm. John and Joe are amazing hosts and their horses Sky, Bob, Caution, Don Pedro were solid and trustworthy. It was the most majestic experience being out in Tulbagh early in the morning. Breathtaking views amongst the trees, mountains & fields. Ideal for beginners & novices. Do not miss out on the opportunity to connect with amazing people, horses and nature!
