My boyfriend and I went horsebackriding with Equitrails. He had no experience whatsoever but Samantha was very patient and helpfull. She also picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel in Windhoek. During the ride she made sure that I (as a experienced rider) also got my shot of adrenaline and fun. We did the sunset ride which... More

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our trip out with Equitrails. Sam was really helpful arranging the booking by email, the place was easy to find and the staff were all friendly. Our guide was really helpful and we saw lots of the surrounding country side. Would definitely recommend.

Had a lovely sunset ride through the Namibian bush with Equitrails. Stable is conveniently close to the center of Windhoek but saw tons of wildlife including warthogs, steenboks, hyrax, banded mongoose, guinea fowl, and others. Enjoyed a gin and tonic while watching the sunset. Felt completely comfortable in terms of safety, very very small group-ride was tailored to skill level... More

Sunset in the Namibian bush is experienced best atop a horse. I never thought that those words would ever pass my lips but Sam apparently makes it happen in the most friendly and expert way. I recommend this most highly for enjoyment, professionality and value for money. Thanks again Sam,your helpers and of course your patient and beautiful horses.

In June this year I went on a sun downer ride with Sam and one of her horses, Pablo, which was one of the best holiday experiences ever. Sam picked me up from, and drove me back to my accommodation, which made it ever so effortless and convenient. Communication before I met Sam in person was prompt, easy-going and always... More

I did a 6 hour picnic ride with Sam yesterday and it was fabulous. The scenery is stunning, the horses lovely and Sam is very knowledgeable about Namibian flora and fauna, which made it all the more interesting! Thank you so much - I'll definitely be back if I'm in Windhoek again :)

This was a lovely experience. After trekking through Namibia, my wife and I chose to close our journey with a trail ride through the rolling hills of Windhoek. Because we were backpacking, transportation to and from the farm was arranged. Our guide, Sam, was a great companion. Her love for horses and sharing experiences with her patrons made this excursion... More

I went to a horse ride yesterday afternoon with Sam ( the owner) and the most sweetest, gentle QH ever named Picasso. Cantering on the African bush is something priceless, magic views and Sam is such a good British woman very well prepared and caring first of all about horses ( she has a very long experience with them..from Britain...
