Horizon Horseback

Waterberg, South Africa



Over the years Horizon Horseback has developed a collection of fantastic and affordable horse riding holidays in South Africa. Horse riding safaris offer not only close encounters with game but also a diverse range of other rewarding riding experiences: polocrosse, western games, jumping, cattle mustering and swimming with your horse.

Horizon Horseback was established in 1993 and is based in the malaria free Waterberg Biosphere Reserve in northern South Africa. This is an unspoilt region with varied topography, from bushveld savannah to rocky outcrops and mountains. The lodge is beautifully set alongside a large lake within the estate's dedicated game reserve.

This is the perfect holiday for those riders wishing to experience the pleasure of riding with African wildlife in the absence of dangerous game. Rides are tailor-made to suit the needs of our guests and we try to be as flexible as possible. We run a herd of over 80 free roaming horses and can cater for all levels of riders from experienced to complete novice. The distinguishing feature of all our safaris is the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

Horizon boasts an irreverent zest for life that is truly infectious and will leave you wanting more. We enjoy sharing this wonderful place and our lives with our guests, so join us and become a part of it.
