Horse Carriage rides (Four-seater deluxe horse carriage):
They offer the four seater deluxe horse carriage ”Kapkar” for weddings or ceremonial events. This carriage dates back to 1892 and was built in De Aar by the carriage maker A.J. Marais. It was owned by Annatjie's great grandfather. In 2001 the carriage was restored for the wedding of our eldest daughter.
Horse Carriage rides (Open carriage):
This four-wheeled, open carriage (known as the “Spider”) is not only available for weddings and ceremonial events, but is also ideal for family outings.
Allow them to take you on the excursion of a lifetime as you explore the beautiful Koue Bokkeveld with its fruitful valleys. Experience the fresh air and see the age old sandstone rock formations as well as the renowned “fynbos” of the Cederberg mountain range. The scenic picture of fruit orchards, vegetable plantations and dams with clean water, that come together as a quilted masterpiece, will forever be etched in your memory.
Guided horse trails (Using your own horse):
Let them guide you through the Cederberg with its fantastic sandstone rock formations and the fruitful valleys of the Koue Bokkeveld. They’ll take you on mountain trails that few people know of - let alone venture on. Be pleasantly surprised by packs of baboons, ribbucks and klipspringers as you enjoy the scenery from the back of your own horse.
They can accommodate individuals as well as groups of up to 20 people for these tours.
