About Us

Equitrailing was started by Vicky Rowlands in 1993. One of the current owners, Nicky, was part of Vicky's team guiding trails and training horses. We have since bought the farm and taken over the trails, and work hard to offer the same quality horses.

We've renamed the farm Boschrivier after the Boschfontein river running through the property.

The ownership and management of the farm is shared by two couples who live on the property: Gerhard & Maggie Steyn and Hannes & Nicky du Plessis.

Hannes & Nicky have a background in the hospitality industry doing guiding and lodge management. They have also run a landscaping business and Nicky has groomed horses in Europe (Italy, Scotland and New Zealand) for competitive riders backing and schooling horses. Gerhard is in a technical field still doing offshore contracts and Maggie has a strong Corporate IT background.

Evalina is the organic vegetable garden expert and she loves all the horse manure she can use in it!

Gentle Brown works with the horses everyday and helps out with horse-riding lessons, pony rides and pony parties too.

Brown is usually near the horses or the nursery, and will help Evalina in the garden.

All our dogs are friendly and we encourage you to give them love and attention but PLEASE do NOT FEED THEM.

Our Amy may well decide to stroll around the farm with you.

Lena the sheep believes herself to be a dog, and often behave like one of the other hounds who live at Boschrivier Farm and Stables.
