Alpha Equestrian

harmony between horse and rider

community living


Respect, love and horsemanship

Alpha Equestrian Centre is based in the farming district of Simondium between Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Here, in the heart of the Cape Winelands we strive to create a life and educational experience through a range of horse activities that range from leisurely outrides, to disciplined programmes to prepare the horse and rider for a professional competitive career.

We are the “alpha” choice for horseback riding in the Cape Winelands, because:

  1. We love the winelands

  2. We love horse riding

  3. We would love to match you to the right horse

  4. We would love to take your riding to the next level

We are passionate about sharing our knowledge, skills and resources and tailoring our programmes to our riders’ individual needs. Alpha Equestrian Centre is essentially a community, and a place where people and horses can look forward to each experience and training session, and leave with a sense of peace and accomplishment.

It warms our hearts to see happy people and horses.

Alpha Equestrian Centre strives to build a community of like-minded people based on integrity, honesty and a good work ethic; and above all to make a difference in people’s lives through their experiences with horses.
