Horse riding lessons, pony rental, holiday camps & outrides

Welcome to our little slice of Heaven!

Ranger Stables is a small stable yard found in the heart of Craighall Park. What started out as a small collection of ponies has grown into a family of riders, horses and our community.

Horse riding lessons

At Ranger Stables, we offer horse riding lessons for children from the age of 6 all the way up to adults - they will learn from basic skills and knowledge all the way up to competitive level.

Lessons are R1040 a month for one lesson a week (per rider) or R320 per lesson ad hoc.

If you are interested in lessons, please contact Jess Markotter on rangerstables@gmail.com with the following information:
Name and Surname of potential rider * (Important)*
Weight (Horse/ Pony allocation) * (Important)*
Riding experience

Once you have contacted Jess, she will reply with availability, an Indemnity Form and Stable Policy as well as Account Details. Please fill the indemnity out and read the stable policy carefully, and keep for your records.

Pony rides

We also offer pony rides for children. Great for those tiny tots who want to start early. During the week, the ponies are at the Scout Hall (Cnr. Hamilton & Buckingham Ave, Craighall Park.) from 14:00 16:00. On a Saturday, pony rides take place at the Stables, inside REEA; corner Marlborough & Richmond Ave, Craighall Park, from 08:00 10:00 & 15:00-16:00.Pony rides are R30 per child per ride during the week and R50 per child per ride on weekends. Please ask the groom on duty for a pony ride & pay him directly. Please ensure to bring exact amounts, as we do not carry change.
Sundays are by appointment only, please email us to make a booking (rangerstables@gmail.com).


For those who look at riding from a more relaxed point of view, we offer fantastic outrides in Delta Park, where we interact with cyclists and dog walkers while exploring up banks and through the trees of suburban Johannesburg. Outrides are offered to experienced riders only at a cost of R320 per outride. Please email us to make a booking.

Pony parties

Every little girl wishes for a pony as a birthday present and now you can give her two! We offer lovely Pony Camp Parties & Pony Olympics Parties at the Stables or we can bring two ponies with a handler to your children's birthday party. Children can do pony rides and get to interact with these gentle giants. We are also available for schools, fetes & functions. If the venue is not your own, please confirm that ponies are permitted on the property.

If you are interested in hiring our ponies for a birthday party, market or function, please contact Peta Malcolm on malcy2000@yahoo.com with the following information:
