The story of the Dullstroom Riding Centre dates back to the late 1980’s under the steadfast leadership of owner Dave Curtis. A herd of well-tempered and gorgeous horses coupled with Dave’s expert guidance make for an unforgettable Dullstroom horse riding experience. Here we detail everything you need to know about this exciting activity, suitable for novices and advanced riders alike.
The Dullstroom Riding Centre is located 10km outside of Dullstroom in Walkersons Estate, in close proximity to Walkersons Hotel & Spa. The estate itself is 800 hectares in size and features rolling hills, a variety of small dams, a gently flowing river and endless breath-taking views from verdant hilltops. Oak trees line the contoured pathways and the landscape is dotted with colourful wildflowers. The reserve has been compared to the beautiful Scottish countryside by many a visitor, and for good reason!
