My boyfriend and I wanted to do a horse ride through the beautiful Franschhoek valley. Paradise Stables were very accommodating. Our guide (Jonathan) took us out for 1.5 hours through some beautiful landscapes. We were complete beginners and he went at our own pace and when we were comfortable enough, we cantered some of the route. He was a very... More

We had an enjoyable hour on a sun set walk to overlook the valley.The horses were well kept and the ride was not strenuous and comfortable even for young ones.

The horses at Paradise Stables are safe, well behaved and in great shape. The tour was led calmly and competently through beautiful countryside making the ride highly enjoyable and relaxing. Our group had a mix of abilities ranging from total novices to experienced riders. Everyone was accommodated and came home with a huge smile on their faces. Can't recommend this... More

The best way to see the winelands! We had a wonderful afternoon - gorgeous, well-trained horses who respond equally well to beginners and experienced riders; lovely chatty guide who was kind enough to essentially give my partner a riding lesson whilst the more experienced riders in the group went ahead for a canter; stunning scenery; delicious wine. Would do this... More

Sitting atop a horse wandering through the vineyards of Franschhoek is an experience that isn't going to go away fro a while. The views are superb no matter where you turn and the owner Peter is very chatty and rightly proud of his business and home. For anyone who isn't too accustomed to horse riding do not let it put...

What a wonderful alternative to the boozy wine tours that you can do elsewhere! The horses clearly know their way around and are very used to having riders of all abilities on them. The ride took us through stunning countryside. The 2 wineries were very nice, with the second one having some really exceptional wines (and views!). We also stayed... More

What a wonderful idea to combine horse riding and wine tasting! We had a great afternoon, although the ride to the first winery was a bit too long, especially for first timers. The second winery was really great. The owners of the horses were very friendly. Some of the horses were a bit agitated though and quickly scared of happenings... More

We had a wonderful time, wine tasting on horseback. The horses were all really well behaved and so we had a lovely amble through gorgeous countryside. They are very busy at the moment so be sure to book in advance!

I am not a good rider, so let's start there. We had the most amazing afternoon on our ride with Linda ( or maybe Yolinda). She was so kind and patient with me. And let's just say after the first tasting, I was a much better rider. The horses were well trained and the whole experience will be a life... More
