What you'll do
I will take you and your small private group of guests on a horse ride through some of South Africa's most well-known wine estates. Along the way, we will take in spectacular views of Table Mountain and the mountains of Stellenbosch and we'll see many different bird species and possibly, some antelope. For our two-hour ride, we'll start off with a short lesson for novices to ensure everyone is comfortable with their horse and their equipment. When everyone is happy, we'll set off across our nursery farm before we cross to our neighboring wine farm, Joostenberg. Half way through our ride, we will stop for some light refreshments, including a glass of wine or juice and a snack. You'll get to relax in the shade of indigenous trees before mounting our horses again. We'll then head back toward the Pink Geranium Nursery, surrounded by mountains, vineyards, and tranquility. All levels of riders are catered for, so you will get exactly the ride you want, be it a gentle meander through the vineyards or a fast-paced canter down a sandy track. Our horses are very well trained, and very well looked after. We'll never ride the same trail twice, so no one will get bored of the route.
Growing up on a sheep farm in South Africa meant learning to ride came almost before learning to walk, so horses have always been a part of my DNA. I then grew up, attended Stellenbosch University, and developed a deep passion for wine. And after 15 years of living in London—here I am, living the dream—taking like-minded adventure seekers for a lovely meander on horseback through the spectacular wine region of Stellenbosch. Reinvesting in our local communities is very important to me, so I do a lot of work teaching natural horsemanship skills to young kids from the area.
