Pony Ride

  • 30 minutes


A gentle 30 minutes ride for your little one on one of our ponies. Your child will be on a lead rein at all times to ensure its safety. Our ponies are all thoroughly tame and calm, ready to carry little kids on their backs. Bring some carrots to spoil them!

All of our horses are home bred by us. Our goal is to breed hardy, loving horses with huge hearts and quick feet. All our young horses are halter trained by the time they are weaned and a bit later brought into gentle work to ensure that they quickly become well adapted citizens of our Samjak Stud.

SA Boerperde are known for their good nature, stamina and hardiness. They are also extremely versatile and aim to please their rider in whatever they do. Our horses are a true testimony to that.


A slow walk through our farm and vineyards, with a capable guide leading the ponies. Our guides are good with children and will make your kids feel right at home. A helmet will be made available to ensure their safety and well being.

The little riders are welcome to arrive a few minutes before their ride to get a properly fitting helmet and to get acquainted with their pony.

The ride will be gentle and slow.

Riders are also more than welcome to brush their ponies afterwards, as long as their parents supervise and assist. Grooming after the ride without parental supervision will be charged as a ponyride.

Great experience! Loved the vineyard trail around the farm. Our instructor Bianca was friendly and made us feel at ease on our first horse riding experience.

Very nice ride with Wilke and the well behaved horses at the farm! She was able to accommodate for experienced and less experienced riders in our group of five. Beautiful scenery and relaxed surroundings! I'd definitely visit again.

I almost missed the turn due to no signs for the horse farm, but I managed to find the farm none the less. Beautiful breed of horse. All of the horses look healthy and happy. The tack is also in great condition and my saddle was nice and comfy. Wilke and her team are great. I was the only experienced rider with a group of beginners, so my outride was not what I was hoping for, however Wilke still allowed me to take a short detour with her assistant guide to have a very quick trot and canter. Hopefully next time we can go all out :)
