For the love of horses in the Steenberg Region

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and freedom – Sharon Ralls Lemon.

Horses are beautiful, genuine and filled with a rare essence of excellence. An equestrian lifestyle is one of great sophistication, determination with unique bonding between a rider and their horse. Steenberg Green encourages this intimate connection and is therefore only 10 minutes away from the closest equestrian centre. Losing the relationship between you and your horse should not be added to the ever-growing stresses of daily life.

Steenberg Green falls under the Tokai District Riding Association (TDRA), a non-profit organisation established in 2012, that represents the interests of riders within the Tokai region and surrounding areas.

The organisation was founded to protect the individual and collective interests of riders in their dealings with other riders and governing bodies such as provincial and national governments, City of Cape Town and SANParks.

The Steenberg region is, therefore, the ideal area for equestrian and nature lovers alike. The surrounding Tokai areas encourage diverse and adventurous activity for both the individual and families. Within a few kilometres of the secure Steenberg Green estate is the Equestrian Academy Cape Town (EACT) High School situated within Klein Zevenwacht Wine and Equestrian Estate.

EACT has a unique offering as it is one of the very few schools in South Africa to offer equine studies as an optional matric subject. Applicants undergo a thorough screening process when applying for admission due to this exclusive offering.

Riding areas within the vicinity of the Steenberg Green estate include The Forest Riding Club, The Tokai Pony Club and Horse Riding Cape Town.

The Forest Riding Club

This equestrian centre is situated within the Tokai forest, where the peaceful atmosphere of the forest makes it the ideal haven to escape your everyday life and focus on the majesty of the land trotting equid instead. The Forest Riding Club offers horse riding lessons, leasing, and livery and most impressively prides itself on the Equestrian Therapy program.

This Animal Assisted Intervention helps individuals heal from traumatic experiences by creating a safe space for individuals to connect with the horses. Horsemanship is at the core of the teachings at Forest Riding Club.

Tokai Pony Club

In Tokai, you will find the South African Pony Club’s Tokai branch. The Tokai Pony Club offers two sand dressage arenas, a jumping arena with sand and rubber chip surfaces and cross country jumps. The riding facility offers optimal security and has a dog-proof fence securely encasing it.

Horse Riding Cape Town

Horse riding Cape Town offers a more adventurous flair to their horse riding. Travel packages could have you moving through a vineyard, gliding through Big Five safaris or watching the sunset on the horizon of Pearly Beach all from the elevated comfort of horseback. The company offers solo trips or group excursions and all their tour guides are trained to handle both novices and advanced riders.
