African Horse Company
African Horse Company offers multi–day horse trails and out-rides of an hour to the better part of the day.
African Horse Company is Based 180 km from Cape Town, in the Western Cape’s unspoiled Overberg.
Our home, the Overberg region, is one of the hotspots of the Cape Floral Kingdom, (“fynbos”), the richest of the Earth’s six floral kingdoms and restricted to the Western Cape of South Africa.
The Cape Floral Kingdom is a World Heritage Site and by far the best way to discover its richness is by riding on horseback through this botanical wilderness. This part of the Western Cape is also the mating and breeding grounds of the Southern Right Whale. Galloping along the shores of the pristine Walker Bay between July and December, you will – as a rule, more than as an exception- see whales breaching in the ocean less than 100 meters away. Not surprising that the Southern Overberg is perhaps known better by the many as the “Whale Coast”.
On offer are 1-6 hour beach and mountain out rides and 2-10 day overnight trails catering for beginners to advanced horse riders.

My daughter and I signed up for the 1 hour ride - so worth it. My daughter is an experienced rider and I am not - the group leader was very experienced and made sure the horse and rider were well matched. The scenery and magnificent fynbos above Stanford Hills is amazing. I highly recommend.
