At Shepherd’s Fold Stables in the Lanseria area, we offer a variety of trail ride options to allow visitors to explore our amazing landscape on horseback and we are well equipped to accommodate riders of every level and experience. The stables can accommodate up to 10 riders at a time and each group trail ride is led by an experienced Shepherd’s Fold staff member. The trails go through the most beautiful routes, through the neighbouring farms, stopping along the way to take in the stunning views of Johannesburg, the Magaliesberg and Cradle of Humankind nearby. We offer 1 hour 1.5 hour and 2 hour long trail rides.
For more information on our trail rides and specials, please contact us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Sunday Morning Trail Rides:

What we require from you for a trail ride:
Date and Time of the trail ride
Number of riders (maximum of 10 at a time or the group will be split)
Your riding experience
Your height and weight so we can choose suitable horses for you (maximum weight limit of 90 kg)
Your booking will only be confirmed once we have received the deposit.
Please note if you are late, we will only wait for 10 minutes after your scheduled departure time; after this your booking will be cancelled and not refunded.
50% deposit is required on booking and the outstanding amount is payable on the day of the trail with cash or card.
All riders are advised to wear long trousers and low heeled boots or shoes for comfort and safety.
Hard hats must be worn and a selection is available at the yard, should you not have your own.
Unfortunately there is a weight restriction of 90kg and we do need to know your heights and weights to select suitable horses for you.
Children can join their parents on the trail ride from 8 years and older.
A cancellation policy applies.
Gift vouchers available
We ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your ride to ensure that the ride leaves on time - if you are late the ride will still return at the scheduled time and be cut short.
The trail rides are based on experience and the horses will only walk and trot unless it is an experienced trail ride.
Our trail ride prices are the same for both adults and children as the horses still do the same work.
We have handlers for the less experienced riders and children that do not wish to ride the horses on their own.
We have a little cafe on the premises that serves coffee, muffins and toasted sandwiches etc where you can sit and relax before or after your ride.
