Forty years of grooming equestrians

For the past 40 years, the Johannesburg Equestrian Centre has been the beacon of horse riding in the South giving birth to some of the country’s most notable equestrians.

Following the location of its properties, the centre has been operating in the South since inception giving it a central and accessibility advantage to many.

The centre aims to teach children and adults the value of building a relationship with a horse, and the value of treating the animal with respect and care.

“We offer riding lessons, stable therapy, pony camps, as well as a safe environment for children to enjoy. Over the years we have produced a lot of equestrians who have gone to run their own stable yards and compete at top levels in South African sport,” said Johannesburg Equestrian Centre owner, Natasha du Plessis.

The centre is the oldest running equestrian school in Johannesburg which offers horse riding facilities, as well as an easily accessible platform that allows children to be children while they enjoy outdoor activities like climbing trees, grooming ponies and having a good time out.

Apart from riding lessons, the centre supports children through several community engagement initiatives which have seen a number of children riding and getting trained for free.

“A lot of children come and get an opportunity with the horses and enjoy the environment with us,” Natasha added.
