About Stormy Hill Horse Trail Holiday in the Midlands KZN
This is a self-catering holiday staying at Stormy Hill Country cottage. Stormy Hill Horse Trails are situated in the midlands, Kwa Zulu Natal. This is a picturesque farming area with extensive forested plantations perfect for your riding holiday.
Day 1: Arrival at Stormy Hill in the afternoon letting you settle into the self catering cottage. An introduction to the horses at afternoon feed time.
Day 2: The program starts around 9.00am. It includes finding out about the horses different personalities while they are in their stables; brushing the horses and general handling. This helps you to get to know your horse. After grooming and tacking up our horses we ride in the training ring to get used to our horses, then we set off for our trail ride. This is tailored for the individual needs and goes at the pace that I think is fit for the riders. It normally encompasses going up and down hills and crossing a stream or two. This usually takes approximately two hours. You may be asked to dismount and lead your horses depending on the ground conditions in different sections. (Some areas tend to get a bit slippery at times). When we get back we take the bridle and saddle off and finally we give the horses some apples or carrots and let them out into the fields to graze. This program will take up most of the morning. Approximately three and a half hours.This is a relaxed ride in open countryside. There is some beautiful scenery and the dogs usually follow along. You are then free to enjoy the afternoon at your leisure. Maybe see some of the Midlands Meander, have a braai or just take a stroll on the property. This is a fun day out with hopefully some learning and confidence building thrown in.
The following days: Going out for a trail ride. We usually take a different route in the forest from yesterday to show you more of the surrounding countryside. When we get back we take the bridle and saddle off and finally we give the horses some apples or carrots and let them out into the fields to graze. This program will take up most of the morning.
