Horse Trails

We are based at Pachelbel Guest Farm in Magaliesburg. Our scenic farm is within an hours drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Our venue is ideal for a group of friends or family to book the entire place for themselves and just ride and relax!

Minimalist by nature, its humble appearance and peaceful energy have many guests describing Pachelbel as a sanctuary, blending into its natural surroundings. We have four en suite guestrooms nestled in the forest and gardens, a large swimming pool, park like lawns and a bespoke wellness facility where we offer deep relaxing and stress releasing massage treatments.

With our herd of 6 horses, we offer signature trail rides that includes mountain, forest, open field and river terrain.

Good for our horses and good for our souls!
