#DoStellies – Horse riding with Equine Sport Centre at Wild Clover Farm

by Karisa

After a lazy Sunday morning breakfast, what’s better than getting out there and connecting with nature, right?  Well that’s exactly what we got to do thanks to the team from Equine Sport Centre who are based on the Wild Clover Farm just outside Stellenbosch.

Equine Sport Centre offers trail rides, riding lessons, and horse training & housing (also known as a livery) facilities.   Their trail rides are available from Tuesday to Sunday and takes place on neighbouring farms including Pete’s Place and Villiera.

You can choose between 30min up to 2 hr trails, or even romantic sunset trails in the summer months.  Then if you so wish you can also combine your trail ride with a wine tasting or beer tasting & something to eat at the Wild Clover Brewery.

And for those who are worried about not having any horse riding skills – don’t stress!  They have 9 gorgeous trail horses which cater for all levels of riding.

Say hello guys…

Too gorgeous…

Leigh getting acquainted with her horse Juliette…

And up she goes…

I got Cherokee who, in my humble opinion, was the prettiest (even though he’s a boy) horse by far…

To ensure that all riders feel comfortable, they keep the pace as slow/fast as the least experienced rider…

Which means you can take your time and soak up the views…

The horse life… not bad, not bad at all…  Thoroughly enjoyed this experience!

For bookings and price enquiries it’s best to contact them directly (especially if you want to work out a bit of a package to suit your specific needs).  To do so, contact them on:

BUT they’re currently also running a special through Groupon where for R550 you get a 60 to 90-Minute Horseback Trail Ride with Beer Tasting and Pizza to Share for Two.

And then there’s also a BIRTHDAY SPECIAL: This package consists of a trail ride of an hour or an 1.5 hour trail where the birthday boy/girl rides for free!  (A maximum of 8 and a minimum of 3 persons at a time including the birthday person of course).

So yeah, for some good ol’ fashioned horsing around (see what I did there), do give them a call. 🙂
