More about Stompdrift Trail

A slightly faster 2-hour guided outride, mostly in the Stompdrift Dam basin where some of our young horses roam. It is designed for more experienced riders, so Accomplished and Expert level riders are welcome to book for this one as you must be able to trot and canter on a well schooled horse.

All year round.


Stompdrift Dam Road, De Rust, Oudtshoorn district, in the Klein Karoo.


This service is weather depending. Humans are waterproof, just like horses. We will continue with your ride in wet weather conditions, although we rarely have to reschedule due to rain. The Klein Karoo is known for its very dry climate, however, we do not operate in extreme wet weather conditions and rides will be rescheduled if we decide that its impossible to attempt the ride. In the case of high temperatures, we take along water in the saddle bags and if you keep moving, it is bearable mostly because we have a low humidity.

What to Wear:

Comfortable clothing: Long pants, ski pants or riding breeches and closed shoes. Sneakers are not ideal, but acceptable. Avoid clothing which can be damaged by shrubs and branches (e.g. down jackets, microfibre). We provide riding hats. If there are rain predicted, bring a light rain jacket. We can tidy it away in a saddle bag if you are unsure of the weather on the ride.

Things to bring:

Remember to bring your sunscreen and sunglasses. In summer, we recommend long sleeved, light shirts with a collar for protection against the sun. Feel free to bring your own water bottle to take along on the ride, otherwise we provide bottled tap water or you can buy drinks at our Farm Shop. Bring a change of clothing if we expect wet weather.

Guests or Spectators:

Non riders are welcome to spend time on the farm while friends or family are out on a ride. Take a walk or relax under the vine veranda. The farm shop has a small selection of refreshments available. Alternatively you can take the short drive to De Rust to browse shops or visit one of the numerous café’s. Meiringspoort Waterfall is also a short drive away.

My daughter did an outride with KKHA. I while back so I can't remember the guide's name. I think it was Lenny, a British gent. She absolutely loved the ride as well as the sights. It is a bonus for parents like us to be able to show children the beautiful area we live in. Celia was fantastic, and even showed us around the buildings a bit. We will be back. Hopefully for a riding camp.
