Shepherds Bush Horse Riding Centreon May 5, 2011
Set in amidst the lush, green grounds of Sun City is the Shepherds Bush Horse Riding Centre. Founded and run by Lani Shepherd, this horse haven allows guests to enjoy extensive, relaxing and tranquil rides through the countryside.
Founding The Haven For Horses
Lani hailed from Johannesburg, where she worked in the Veterinary Distribution business. In 2009 she arrived at Sun City and purchased the horse riding stables.
Since Shepherds Bush Horse Riding Centre at Sun City opened their doors, they’ve made major changes to the stables with an upgrade in the buildings and horses; originally only 8 horses they now stable 15 horses. They’ve also introduced more rides that cater for novices all the way up to advanced riders, and have been actively involved with Sun City in developing the feral cat clinic at the stables which to date has seen not only feral cats but also lots of indigenous wildlife that has passed through the doors in need of help.
They have also been involved with the Rustenberg SPCA in the rescuing of abused and neglected horses and donkeys in and around the Sun City area. They are consistently looking at ways in which they can help improve the lives of all creatures in and around Sun City. They have also built a bush baby enclosure and are busy with nature conservation in the hopes that they’ll be issued permits to breed and soft release these back into the Sun City area. We hope they succeed!
The Shepherds Bush Horse Riding Centre has a staff compliment of 7 guides who are also passionate about the horses and strive to make each guest feel at home. The rides cater for little ones from about 2 years old and up, and the trails give breath-taking views of Sun City.
