for a sense of well-being

Situated on the Drakensberg Escarpment, 35km from Nelspruit, Mpumalanga in South Africa, near the quaint historic gold mining village of Kaapsehoop. As you follow the winding 7km forest track through the Berlin Forest, you will find your shoulders lightening, your eyes being drawn to the horizon and your lungs drawing in the fresh pine-scented air.
Soon a beautiful world meets both horse and nature lover.

“There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.”

Winston Churchill

Horses are both beautiful to watch and of significant impact to the lives of many. A ride on a horse is akin to no other feeling, indeed psychologists and other mental health professionals are more and more recognising the value of horses’ particular character to promoting well-being.

Established in 1994 by equine legend and gifted horseman, Christo Germishuys, the 17 000 ha private concession with Komatiland Forests boasts of natural splendour with gorgeous vistas and scenery. Over the years this trail riding establishment has gained a fine reputation as a result of the excellent conditions of the well-trained horses as well as the safe riding, all combined with the soul and passion found in this unique setting.
