Meander the Natal Midlands from the comfort of one of the Buffelsbosch Equestrian saddles, atop a well-trained horse that is cooperative and good natured. Buffelsbosch Farm is situated in Lidgetton Valley, making it the ideal base from which to go on outride adventures or a gentle walk through the verdant beauty of this part of South Africa.
Buffelsbosch Equestrian offers riders of all abilities (even beginners with no previous experience on or with a horse) a number of trails and outride options. These not only showcase the loveliness of the Midlands to perfection, but also allow visitors to interact with these intelligent, soulful animals in a hands-on, personal way.
In addition to the scheduled outrides, rides for special occasions can also be arranged. These may include a surprise engagement, photo shoot, or anniversary. Take someone special for a picnic in the plantations to ensure that your lifelong memories are as beautiful as the backdrops of KwaZulu-Natal.
The dam on the Buffelsbosch Dam is fantastic for fishermen wanting to while away languorous summer days or crisp winter mornings. The dam is brimming with tilapia, grass carp and bass, which are all caught on a strict catch-and-release policy. In the winter, fishermen have access to the dam from 06h00 to 18h00. In summer, the dam opens at 05h00 and closes at 19h00. There are ablutions and picnic facilities at the Buffelsbosch Dam.
Our trained staff members conduct outrides from 09h00 to 14h00 in winter and from 08h00 to 15h00 in summer. These are between one and four hours long, depending on your needs and the time you have available. However, those not used to riding on a fairly regular basis are advised to keep their time in the saddle to about two hours or less.
Buffelsbosch Equestrian also offers rider and horse training sessions, as well as livery for all horses.
