Shumba Valley Horse Trails, Fouriesburg

Shumba Valley Horse Trails, Fouriesburg, Free State, South Africa

The wide open spaces, rolling grasslands, farmlands, mountain foothills and breath-taking views along the line of the Caledon River and the Eastern Free State border with Lesotho support many horse trails operations. One such operation is Shumba Valley Horse Trails near Fouriesburg.

The Shumba Valley Horse Trails are offered by the Shumba Valley Farm and Equestrian Centre. Trails are arranged in packages ranging from 4 night to 10 night trails.

The Ouhout Camp Trail consists of 3 nights sleeping at the Shumba Valley Lodge with day rides from the farm, and one night at the Ouhout Camp in a private nature reserve.
