Activities For Everyone

Whether you enjoy horse riding, mountain biking, golf or hiking Crestwood has something for everyone. The estate is 21 hectares with rolling green manicured lawns which is perfectly suitable for horse riding or quad biking. The Boschhoek Golf Club is a mere six kilometers down the road, as well as Karkloof nature reserve which offers hiking, mountain biking and the popular canopy tours.


Our Friesan Horses

We have five Friesan horses. The Friesian (also Frizian) is a horse breed originating in Friesland, in the Netherlands. Although the conformation of the breed resembles that of a light draught horse, Friesians are graceful and nimble for their size. It is believed that during the Middle Ages, ancestors of Friesian horses were in great demand as war horses throughout continental Europe. Through the Early Middle Ages and High Middle Ages, their size enabled them to carry a knight in armour. Though the breed nearly became extinct on more than one occasion, the modern-day Friesian horse is growing in numbers and popularity, used both in harness and under saddle. Most recently, the breed is being introduced to the field of dressage.
