MOOIKRANS EQUUS is a horse-riding centre and holiday farm, situated on the escarp of the Highveld of Mpumalanga, 27 km from Morgenzon on the R35 route to Amersfoort.

One way to solve holiday problems is to send the children on a fun-filled farm holiday. Horse-riding, feeding the calves, milking the cows, swimming in the river and picnicking in the veld is a whole lot more fun than logging on to computer games or spending money in the mall.

Activities:

Other Activities Mooikrans Equus offers a range of farm activities in a safe environment on a farm in Mpumalanga on the road between Amersfoort and Morgenzon. Horse riding is the main focus on Mooikrans Equus where there are 31 very special horses available.

All the horses are well-trained, very reliable and ideal even for the youngest visitors. Formal riding lessons take place in the riding school every day, and for those youngsters who have never ridden before, every care is taken. Out-rides are very popular and range from an hour or two roaming in the veld to special day rides which include a picnic lunch. The children also learn to groom their ponies and take care of the saddles and tack.

The wide spectrum of programmes are compiled to ensure that schools, groups or individuals, children and youth tourists, may choose their appropriate programme, depending on their needs and requirements. Programmes therefore include leadership training and development, educational programmes, a series of courses in the art of horse-riding such as ‘western’ or ‘cowboy’. A unique experience is also guaranteed through the variety of self-help programmes for children and the youth.

The purpose of the programmes is to build each visitor’s character by developing their self image and independence, while they are having a holiday experience. Within this, the horses and horse-riding plays a pivotal role. Horses are used as they require the undivided attention of their jockey and body and mind must work together to achieve success. The mastering of the horse during this process, almost instinctively leads to self-confidence and a healthy self-image
