The Horses

With over 30 years of caring for horses, David and Robyn now have a herd of 41 horses which are fit, responsive and reliable, and also adapted to the African environment.

The horses range in breeds from sporty Thoroughbred X, to hardy Apaloosas and tough African boerperds, as well as some lovely Shire X, Fresian X and wonderfully-tempered Botswana Kalahari ponies – perfect for kids!

The horses range in size from 12 hh to 17 hh, including weight carriers which can cater to riders of up to 95kgs.

Horses and guide

Under the guidance of our permanent and qualified Equestrian Stable Manager, our team of 15 guides and grooms take pride in the well being of each horse, ensuring that they are well schooled, (but not over-worked) and well-rested between the trips, hence each guest will have the opportunity of riding several different horses during their stay.

Great care is taken in matching horse to rider. We ask our guests to respect each of our horses and treat them as they would their own: they are an integral part of the Foot Family.
