About In the Company of Horses

In the Company of Horses offers a variety of horse riding, adventure and training experiences in the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains in Kwazulu Natal. We are based at and operate from a farm near Boston overlooking the Nhlosane mountain approx. 45kms from Howick.

Owners and business operators Lloyd Gillespie and Isabel Wolf-Gillespie are hands on ensuring that your family and you can explore the area on one of their safe horse adventures. Whether you are a beginner or have been riding all your life, our horses and team will cater for your needs. We have a herd of 13 horses and they are ridden barefoot and bitless.

Additionally we have recently rescued a herd of 14 wild horses which are living wild on the Nhlosane Mountain. We do allow people to visit them but there is no physical interaction possible as these horses are wild and most have never been touched by a human before.

We offer:
• Interactive horse rides for beginners or experienced riders
• Horsemanship workshops, ground work training courses, barefoot trimming workshops.
• Equine facilitated learning experiences for children and adults alike.
