Thank you for the interest you expressed in enquiring about our horse trails.
We present 2 leisurely 3 hour rides on Sundays – from 08:00 am – 11:00 am and from 15:00pm – to 18:00pm respectively.
All these journeys are accompanied by two or more experienced guides. Halfway through the trip the group splits in two:
- An advance group that enables gutsy, wild at heart riders to practice their so called “unplanned dismounts” at a controlled canter pace.
- A slow, controlled group, that either trot or walk for the slightly more meek and mild rider.
During the 3 hourly rides we enjoy the enticing nature scenery surrounding the legendary Apies River and Bon Accord Dam. We unsaddle the horses at Bon Accord Dam Hotel for a well deserved half hour break.
Bring some extra money with to buy a beverage to quench that thirst or an alcoholic beverage to calm the nerves.
Breakfast for the Sunday morning breakfast run can be ordered, at the latest 3 days in advance, as the kitchen is not necessarily
always open. Unfortunately, we can not vouch for the service that you will encounter at the “dam” hotel.
The breakfast is a very basic R25.00 hunger buster that includes bacon, 2 eggs, two slices of toast and baked tomato AND if you are lucky a sausage. Complaints about possible cold breakfast or a missing piece of bacon or an egg will only be met with a stern stare from hotel management at this “minus five stars” convenient halfway house.
Other light meals can be ordered at the bar i.e. hamburger & chips, steak, egg & chips, prego roll’s and chicken, chips and salad.
(Currently the kitchen is closed AGAIN – until further notice)
At the Tuck shop you can buy basic snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.
We recommend that you book well in advance for our very popular Sunday rides in order to avoid disappointment.
Please note that we do not supply any professional riding gear i.e. protective riding hats, chaps and jods.
Act smart and wear comfortable and practical clothes and shoes, such as denim, tekkies and a hat. Curb the intensity of the summer sun by wearing a proper sun block.
Inform us of your status as a beginner- or advance rider, about your weight, height and age when booking your ride so that we can match you in advance with the perfect horse suited to your individual needs out of our variety of amazing “horsesanalities”.
