Camelot Riding School


Camelot Riding School is situated in the heart of Durbanville & was established in 1993. 

We offer horse riding lessons for all ages and experience levels and strive to accommodate the competitive riders as well as the non-competitive horse loving “happy hackers” equally. We offer basic riding, show jumping and dressage in our lessons. We also provide lead-rein classes for the youngsters. Livery stabling is available for those who would like to join the Camelot family and own their own horses.


Our instructors at Camelot are experienced instructors and riders who are reliable and passionate about working with horses and people.

    3) General

We always try to accommodate our riders according to their available times.

What to wear: A pair of long pants and a shoe with a heel (school shoe or something similar). A riding hard-hat is also compulsory and can be borrowed from the school for the lesson.

On termination of riding contract, we ask for a one calendar month written notice.

Rider’s weight: Due to possible strain on our horse’s backs from heavier riders, we have to make the cut off weight for a beginner rider at 85 kg.
