The Equestrian Centre, Overstrand, “where happy horses live!”
Have you ever entertained fantasies of cantering along a pristine beach, with the wind in your hair and the surf thundering at your feet? This need no longer be a fantasy! The EQUESTRIAN CENTRE, OVERSTRAND offers just such possibilities.
If you have never sat on a horse in your life, or if you have done so only occasionally, the dream can still become a reality.
The Centre offers lessons to Beginners and through the spectrum of ability to Advanced. Age is not a factor either. The riding yard caters for adults, teenagers and children as young as three. The horses are relaxed, happy and well-behaved so any nervousness you may feel will soon disappear.
Should you wish to explore the competitive riding disciplines you can be trained in Dressage and Show Jumping.
The Equestrian Centre is situated very close to the Bot River estuary and offers wonderful trail rides through the fynbos and around the estuary and lagoon, these in addition to the glorious beach rides.
There are also wonderful weekend and holiday riding camps for children. What a great way to prise bored kids away from their cell phones and computer games! And they may even become little champions. Coincidentally, the riding yard is on the Rooisand Road, a short distance beyond Kleinmond.
