If you like horses and wine this is for you. I am not a confident rider and felt comfortable all afternoon. If you can ride there are opportunities to stretch your ponies legs. You get to see the area in a completely different way.

Such nice nature horses, our guide Jonathan was super friendly and sharing of his knowledge of Franschoek. It's always great hearing stories from a local. Breathtaking views of the wine farms and valley.
