Customer Reviews

We arrived at Hog Hollow and was greeted by a warm smile from the Ladies that checked us in. We were sat down and made to feel very welcomed. Myself only having been on one outride before was rather nervous, in the other hand my wife is an experienced rider so she was very much looking forward to it. We were introduced to our guide, met the horses and this made me more nervous as I was riding a very large ( for me anyway ) white Percheron. Anyway I got on and instantly felt a connection with the old girl. We set off and I must say it was an awesome experience. Quite a few times the guide told my wife to stay back so she could enjoy a small gallop which pleased her. The guide could see how comfortable I looked after a short while and also had me canter a few times. I enjoyed this very much but sitting on the Percheron was like sitting on a comfy sofa so I felt secure. The views through the forest was stunning and I would thoroughly recommend this outride to anyone, novice to experienced rider it caters for all. Will definately book again when we are passing through. - STEVE COMBE

Amazing experience, cannot recommend it enough, as complete beginners we were well looked after. The staff were lovely and the horses in very good condition and well cared for. Paul our guide made us feel really at ease. A must do - Mr & Mrs Abbott

Surprise 2hr Forest and Farm ride booked for me by daddy. My 2 cousins joined me even though they have very little riding experience. The guides really looked after them, and clipped them to their own horses during trickier section, but also allowed them on their own at times to get used to riding. I loved my horse, Grey Joy, and the guides (Owen). They even let me have a little gallop at one point. I had such fun riding , I would love tom come back and maybe next time we can ride to the beach :-) - Olivia Dorfler

My daughter and I regularly go on outrides with Hog Hollow as we holiday in Plett twice a year. We love the horses and the guides and the scenery en route is breathtaking. We have been on the 1 hour, 2 hour and picnic outrides and can highly recommend all of them, time permitting. Our last ride before we left Plettenberg Bay was a picnic ride into the mountains of Kurland Estate with a delicious picnic at Kurland for lunch. We were allowed to ride on the Polo fields and "let loose" a little on the horses which was magical. Hog Hollow has horses which are suitable for all levels of rider ability and their guides are experienced, friendly and careful. We will be back at the end of the year as Hog Hollow is the highlight of every holiday. - Gillian Lowndes

The yard is very professional with a warm welcome from the receptionist and the guide. New "chaps" to cover the leg and protect from rubbing were very welcome. A very plrasant and steady ride on two calm horses - Helen O'connell (HHCL)
