Their magnificent horse trails and horse riding holidays start from their home base on the magical de Heuvel Farm, in the Witzenberg Valley.


Scenic Horse trails in the Cape Winelands.

Safety, comfort and enjoyment, for both horse and rider, are their priorities. From bombproof to energetic, they have horses to suit beginners to advanced riders, from kids to adults, enabling us to match you with the best equine partner for your chosen horseback adventure.


Magical Moonlight on Horseback

Join us for a magical Moonlight horse ride! Experience the cape winelands from a completely different perspective lit by moonlight! A trail by moonlight on horseback will take you back in time and offers a truly magical experience to enjoy the beauty of the Witzenberg Valley. Just 90 minutes from Cape Town, away from city light pollution guests are blown away by the brightness of the moon and fascinated by having a moonshadow! 

Start time varies according to the season. They meet at sunset for introductions before heading up into the foothills of the Witzenberg Mountains as the daylight fades. They ride through magical forests and vineyards waiting for that magical moment when the moon crests over the mountains. 

Romance Packages

Looking for a very special romantic outing, where you can actually spend leisurely time with your loved one? Enjoy a Trail Ride through the scenic countryside and add to the romance with a gourmet picnic basket while you relax overlooking the breathtaking Witzenberg Valley. 

Close to Cape Town, their trail riding makes a fabulous romantic getaway.

Make any of their trail rides private with just you and a guide and their fabulous horses for company. These romantic rides give you the opportunity to stop anywhere for pictures and to set the pace at your own speed whether it is walk or enjoying an exhilarating canter for the advanced riders.   

Their guide will strive to make your ride an enjoyable and romantic experience. Your ride can include sundowners or you can relax and enjoy a leisurely picnic on your own after the ride - stay as long as you like. 

Ready to pop the question, but needing some inspiration for a surprise setting? Contact them to plan your special day. A Horse About private ride is the best way to enjoy the trail without a crowd. On the private trail, it will be just the two of you with a guide, allowing for a more exclusive experience and flexibility in timing and the route.
