Trail Rides


Experience stunning views on horseback

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.
