Horse & Mule Trails
Wine Valley Horse Trails has a package to suit everyone. There are 1 hour, 2-hour, and 4-hour rides, with special wine tasting trails. They operate 7 days a week and the trails are led by experienced and qualified guides.
The rides begin on the beautiful Rhebokskloof Wine Estate and proceed up and into the surrounding Paarl Nature Reserve. Riders are treated to spectacular views of the Du Toits Kloof mountain range, the Swartberg farming areas to the west, and the majestic Table Mountain to the south.
A 3-hour beach ride on the coast of Cape Town is offered on special request. It features gallops on the beach, plus exciting rides through the sand dunes with spectacular views of Cape Point, False Bay, and Hangklip.
Our horses are a variety of cross breeds that suit our terrain as well as the different levels of riders that they come into contact with. They are schooled, well tempered animals that are very much part of the family here. They are South African Boerperds, Friesian, Thoroubred, Warmblood type crosses and suit almost everybody, from the total beginner to the advanced rider.
During the annual hunt season, Wine Valley Horse Trails hires out horses to experienced riders who wish to enjoy the exciting drag hunts, which are organized by the Cape Hunt & Polo Club. These run from April to September and are done in full traditional English Style with South African friendships and hospitality. The hunt venues are all around the Western Cape and one gets the opportunity to hunt on private properties that would not normally be open to the public. Please contact Michelle to get the new hunt card for the coming season.
