Evergreen was established in Paarl, Cape Town, in October 1980. We started with 11 horses and have grown into a successful riding school with 50 horses and ponies.

We offer horse riding lessons for children and adults as well as holiday pony camps.

It has taken years to put together our wonderful team of instructors and very special equines catering for riders of all ages and abilities. 

Our facilities include a sand 20 x 60 dressage arena, 15 x 30m indoor riding arena, 20 x 40 enclosed dressage arena, double & single lungeing ring, jumping arena, dam,  bungalows & a dormitory for holiday camps, swimming pool and amazing outrides in the vineyards, olive orchards and pine forests. 

We have the most wonderful team of little ponies for our tiny tots. They have been specially trained and selected over the years and give the children instant confidence in being around horses. 

Our other horses range from the most steady riding school workhorse teaching basic riding, up to our group of competitive horses and ponies that go out and introduce our up-and-coming riders to the competitive disciplines .

We are the home of the Paarl Branch of the South African Pony Club. The branch was also established in 1980 and has produced many dedicated riders over the years.

In 2009 Evergreen became a Pony Club Centre affiliated to the South African Pony Club. Pupils at the riding school have the opportunity to join as a Pony Club Member through the Evergreen Centre and work through the achievement badge and efficiency test programmes. Children from ages 5 years may join and membership may continue until the age of 25. More info about this on our Pony Club page.
