Customer Reviews

This was an amazing experience and so professional. The ride was amazing and such a beautiful experience and place. I had a lot of fun. - Melissa

Fantastic ride. Watson was our leader and he was superb!!!! Great company - great knowledge and made us feel very comfortable on our ride and on our horses. Would definitely recommend to anyone to use your services - Ailie

I organised a 1 hour mountain view & forest ride from Kurland with my two daughters aged 7 and 14. Whilst the two girls have some riding experience, I am a total novice. The Kurland experience was wonderful for all of us and one of our highlights of this year's South Africa trip. The guide made us comfortable and it was easy for us to enjoy a ride which was slightly longer than the one hour planned. The views were incredible and it was a joy to be in amazing nature on the most beautiful animals. All of us grew in confidence, resulting in some exhilirating trots. What an experience! We will be back. - Merle

It was an awesome experience and would do it again - Jeandre

The ride was excellent and catered very well for both my husband and I who are at different experience levels. I appreciated being able to have a canter at the end with my husband's horse being safely tethered at the time. The trail through fields and forest was interesting as was the information given by our guide. Would definitely recommend. - Clare
