Reviewed 13 November 2014

The best horse riding I've ever done. I chose a 3 hour mountain ride, without the wine although Ellen will take you on a wine tasting on horseback, if you want to. I was given Talahasee to ride - a beautifully tempered white Persian who behaved impeccably.

If you are used to riding in a school, don't give the horse an almighty kick to get him moving, a gentle squeeze and you are off trotting. We wended our way through the vineyards, trotting along and Ellen asks you if you want to canter, or trot, or walk. The horses handle the walk up the mountains very well and at the top are the most amazing views across stellenbosch.

Ellen was a great instructor and a very patient one. She pointed out the birds - Eagles were seen, and the different trees and gave tips to get the most of the riding. Hold your reins loose, keep your feet down, etc. being a novice rider who is used to being in a school, Ellen made the trip for me. She was soothing and comforting when I was being a bit of a big girls blouse at the start, and then let me do my own stuff when I was confident.

The horses are gorgeous, the people very very friendly and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see something a little bit different.
