Join us on one of our famous horse riding trails at the beautiful Mount Rozier Wine Estate! Situated a stone’s throw from Somerset West, our riding trails will afford you all the grandeur and beauty that is False Bay and the Cape Peninsula.
Sunrise/Sunset or special request rides can be arranged for a minimum of 2 people. Please book 2 days in advance for all rides to avoid disappointment. Book now.

To ensure a hassle free ride please arrive 20 minutes before your departure time so that we can fit you with the necessary safety gear, fill out the required forms and match you with a horse or pony that will suit your riding ability. Please note that we ride English style with leather general-purpose saddles.

What to expect
Our outride’s meander through various vineyards and through surrounding wine farms such as Mount Rozier and Journey's End. Both the natural birdlife and awesome splendour of the mountains will add to the tranquility and beauty of the ride. Some of our rides lead through a beautiful forest where the trees only allow an occasional glimpse of the sky. The forest floor is strewn with pine needles and the only sound you hear is the soft thud of hooves on earth.

Our longer rides lead up to a vantage point where the majestic Helderberg hovers over your shoulder while you look out over False Bay and see Cape Point in the distance. Here you can savour the view and if you'd like to take photos or just stretch your legs, there will always be a pair of willing hands to hold your horse and help you back on.

Riding experience
The stables are in the Helderberg basin, situated in the quaint village of Sir Lowry's Pass at the foot of the Hottentots Holland mountain range. Our horses and ponies cater for riders of all levels and kids from the age of 6 years. We strongly recommend that inexperienced children ride on lead rein! Our guides will ensure that the more experienced riders can go for an invigorating canter, while the beginners can continue at a more leisurely pace.

NB! We are always willing to stop for the perfect photo opportunity along the way, so don't forget your cameras! Click here to view our photo gallery at Mount Rozier Stables.
