Learning to Ride


If you don’t have a friend or family member with horses, the easiest way to start riding, is to go to a Riding School. We are in the process of compiling a list of Riding Schools in each area. If your Riding School does not appear on our list, please feel free to download the questionaire here, complete and return to – pr@wcefed.co.za

Western Cape Equestrian Federation is providing a listing service only and cannot be held responsible for the competence of the Riding School or the accuracy of the listing, but please let us know about any good or bad experiences and if the contact details are incorrect. This information can be emailed to pr@wcefed.co.za
