Doornkraal Padstal on the N12 between De Rust and Oudtshoorn


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 join us for lunch. Doornkraal Padstal is open to the public and stocks local products, including the wines/gin/brandy/whiskey of the Klein Karoo wine region. Suggestions for excursions for non riders include a drive to Prins Albert via the small town De Rust and the Meiringspoort waterfall. A visit to De Rustica olive estate is also in close proximity.
