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.

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.
