Horse Riding at Rocking-A Farm

A good friend of mine Megan Thwaites, Owner and Founder of Love Ponies, is an avid horse lover and has been riding since 8. She invited me and a friend to come riding with her at Rocking-A farm in Durbanville this weekend. Being someone that has never riding before, I thought I would give it a go.


Rocking-A farm is owned by horse whisperer, Rocky. Rocky owns ex-polices which are extremely safe, calm and friendly. These beastly wonders are familiar with people and loud noises ensuring your riding experience to be an absolute pleasure. We began our ride from the farm and then rode through an almond tree plantation, across the road and through the vineyards en route to Meerendal where we had something to eat. After a relaxing stop surrounded by gorgeous vineyard views, we saddled up and headed back to the farm.

Lady, Parrot, Heidi, Diesel and Ice were definitely loving the attention they received from passes by. These horses were extremely calm and Rocky made sure we felt safe at all times. I highly recommend visiting Rocking-A for horse riding lessons or for a leisurely Sunday stroll with horses. Rocky has various packages available for groups and team building exercises. 

He does amazing breakfast, lunch and supper packages which is perfect for Valentines Day coming up. Contact Rocking-A farm for an unforgettable horse riding experience.
