Located in the leafy residential area of Thigiri Ridge, the stables are home to about 12 horses and ponies; many being rescue ponies or ex-polo horses.

The stables are just a short distance from Karuha Forest. The forest trails here are just perfect for a canter or trek in the dappled light on a sunny day.

Horse riding at the weekends tend to be quite busy with childrens' riding lessons going on in the mornings. Weekdays are just perfect then, for a quiet relaxing ride in the peace and quiet of suburban Nairobi!

The riding school has humble beginnings starting with just one pony around 8 years ago. Since that time, Swiss born Claudia and Simon Mutero have, between them, taken in many horses, who for one reason or another may not have survived, if it had not been for their kindness and willingness to take these rescue ponies on.

Now the horses and ponies at the stables look in top condition and there are many to choose from. From a very small pony, suitable for very young children (there was a two year old riding around when I visited!) right up to large horses that can take taller, heavier riders.

The atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming and the riding school's position is just so convenient being close to Westlands and the Village Market.

How to get there:
Turn into Thigiri Ridge Road (about half way between Village Market and Westlands). It's not signposted and not very easy to find so you may need to call them! Drive through the barrier and keep straight for less than half a km... Drive until you find a dirt road, go up this for perhaps 20 metres. Over to the left you'll see a green railing gate (it'll be open) with a signpost saying "Private Road". Drive through the gate and follow the road and you're there... Again, there are no signposts so you may have to ask someone if you get lost!
