Overview

We are located on a 2000 hectare Bushveld property, owned by the Sandford community trust. Horse Whispers is a company that offers a wide variety of horse trails. The well-being and future of these horses is dependent on the income from horse trails and donations. Most of these horses came from foster homes and were field horses fairly familiar to human interaction, some did not trust humans at all and others had no understanding of personal space.The training of these horses consisted of halter work, trusting and respecting humans, desensitization exercises, groundwork, preparing for a rider, backing and riding away with a safe, confident horse! Today, these horses able to play a significant role in brighting the lives of underprivileged children. The program teach more than just riding; children develop life skills such as self-confidence, responsibility and discipline – and can have a positive impact on academic performance too. Join us for an unforgettable horse riding experience through the Hazyview bushveld with an en-route stop to meet 6 majestic African Elephants.Or go on a breathtaking ride alongside the river and through the hills leads to an idyllic picnic site in a secluded valley. Enjoy your lunch in the shaded canopy provided by the indigenous Matumi trees. Participate in a cattle drive which is a cattle round up on the Sandford Reserve, where a small number of cattle are located and gathered and moved to the nearest water source. The cattle are moved at a walk, any faster than a walk and you run the fat off them, most unwelcomed by any farmer. There is some faster work occasionally to retrieve runaways. We also offer 30 min, one hour and two hour bush outrides.

A very relaxing and enjoyable trek around the estate, with a delicious picnic lunch half way through. Great way to see the stunning country around Hazyview.

Marina took us on a one hour bush outride. All ponies/horses well cared for, and easy to ride. Wanted to go back for the 2.5 hour ride, but ran out of time.

We took the 2 hour option with picnic, and it was lots of fun! You go uphill and downhill which is quite scary, but makes it worth it. Then you sit and eat your picnic in peace on a garden table and chair. Highly recommended.

A wonderful afternoon outing for our family, including my 14 year old daughter. The staff of Horse Whispers are friendly, knowledgeable and well trained. The horses are in an excellent condition and the trails breath-taking.
