Services & Facilities


Riding lessons from beginner to advanced level by a qualified and experienced instructor. The yard welcomes any rider from the age of 3 years to adult. Safe and supervised pony walks are available for toddlers. Riding lessons are offered in the following disciplines: show jumping, dressage, equitation and eventing. Carlisle also welcomes happy hackers and those who simply wish to learn how to ride a horse and not compete. Lessons are either structured group lessons or private lessons.

Livery. The well-being of all horses under our care is paramount, whether it is our school ponies or your private horse. Our grooms have many years of experience and have a keen eye for picking up any problems a horse may have timeously. Horses receive round the clock care. 

Outrides. Outrides for the general public are arranged on request, the horses used for these outrides are well schooled, calm and experienced. Fun outrides, such as moonlight, glow-in-the dark, outrides to Heidelberg town, etc... are arranged on a regular basis - please keep an eye on our Facebook page for dates and more information.

Pony camps. Carlisle hosts two pony camps during the December/January school holidays. These are guaranteed to be fun filled and educational for the children under 24 hour adult supervision.  

Ponies are available for children’s parties or the yard can be used as a venue for your child’s birthday party at our lapa and farmyard.  

The yard is also a beautiful location for photo shoots (matric farewell, Valentine’s ball, weddings, etc…).
