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

Good easy ride with the owner of the stables. The owner pitched the ride just right for the two of us at different levels of ability. A great way to view the countryside.

My travel companion and I enjoyed our ride with Paradise Stables so thoroughly; it was a top highlight of our whole trip to South Africa. Jolinda was a gracious, funny, informative guide. The wineries we visited were lovely. Everyone's horses were so agreeable and calm. And best of all the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. Thanks, Paradise, for an afternoon in... More

We were greeted by Jolinda who was an exceptional host and guide. Jolinda was able to cater for beginners and those with riding experience. The two wineries that we visited were well selected and were the cherry on top of a perfect excursion.

We were greeted enthusiastically by the owner of the stables and were soon saddled up and on our way! We were a group of novice riders with one experienced rider in the group and the horses were all perfect for each one of us - they are all endurance horses and looked to be well loved and cared for! We... More

My family were joined with some friends and we all enjoyed a lovely late afternoon ride. The sun going down on one side and the moon visible on the other of the mountains. Fabulous views which we could enjoy whilst riding lovely horses that were sure footed and comfortable to ride. We enjoyed some lovely canters through the countryside. A... More
