Tour description

A little more time and energy is well spent on this half-day ride (3-4 hours). The rides normally depart from Wine Valley Adventures on Rhebokskloof Wine Farm, Paarl.   Taken at a pace, according to the capabilities of the riders, the trail will showcase the two top wine estates in the valley.  You also enjoy the view of the valley with the Du Toit’s Kloof Mountain range as backdrop while you are trekking over the mountains between the wine farms.  When Cape Town coastal areas are windy come to our valley for a calm sunny day!  Wine tasting strictly for persons over 18.Group size limited between 2 to15 riders. PLEASE SEND US RIDERS' WEIGHTS AND EXPERIENCE LEVELS.

Please arrive 20 minutes before booking starts for the briefing and to fit your safety helmets.  For the more advanced riders.   A variety of tractor routes, mountain climbs and open areas for a good canter.  The mountain areas offer breathtaking views and there are plenty of magnificent views from the trail.  Tack is matched up to give both the rider and the horse a comfortable ride.  We mainly make use of McCllelan type trail saddles but English General Purpose saddles are available on request.  Hard hats are compulsory; you are welcome to bring your own although we do keep a supply in all sizes for those who prefer to travel light.  Our horses are a variety of cross breeds that suit all terrain as well as the different levels of riders that they come in contact with.  They are schooled, well tempered animals that are very much part of the family here.  They are South African bred Boerperds, Friesian, Thoroughbred and Warmblood type crosses and suit almost everybody, from the beginner to the advanced rider.  The owner of Wine Valley Adventures bred most of the horses used in the trails so each of them has a full history and tales of their adolescent years as part of the different herds of almost 300 horses in total.  The main focus of their breeding program is to have a sound minded, attentive, brave horse that has good work ethics and great rideablility!  Occasionally some of these precious steeds are for sale too.  PS: you might be riding a movie star too – many of our horses work regularly on movie and photo shoots.  Gear: Jodhpurs and half or full chaps, comfortable riding boots, please bring whatever you usually wear to ride. For those without riding gear, tight long pants will do with a closed shoe that has a slight heel.Group size limited between 2 to 15 riders.
