Animals on the Farm

We have a variety of animals on the farm. There is our resident house cat Swazi (fattie) he is very friendly and enjoys being cuddled. We have a host of other animals such as dogs, cats, geese, chickens and horses on the farm.

They are all kept in the bottom part of the farm separated from the house by an electric fence. Due to this reason, we do not allow children under the age of 12.

Horse Riding

Here at Cavalo we have 3 horses and offer horse rides on the farm. They are ridden daily and exercised. The horses are mainly used for show jumping and dressage. Below are pictures of Delarey the Percheron.

Delaey is an 18 year old Percheron that I owned for many years, he is 15h and is a joy to ride, he loves to go on out-rides and being fed carrots. Rey lives on another property and enjoy his life with his new owner.

After many years of dreaming about owning a home for my horses Cavalo became a reality. Cavalo means horse in Portuguese. This beautiful property is located in picturesque Drummond in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Close to the Hammarsdale and Cato Ridge industrial area Cavalo is a great place to stay over on business.

The guesthouse has been furnished with antiques and pre-loved furniture from just about the whole of South Africa, we have carefully hand picked each item within the house. We are sure you will find our furnishings comfortable and homely.

Being an equestrian the home is primarily the horses domain, we have 4 horses, Lija van Aveleden – Dutch Friesian, Aillin Star – SA Warmblood; Sovereigns Captain – Thoroughbred (race winner); Sushi lady – Thoroughbred – she has never raced and is a baby only 3 years old. While they are majestic animals they are to be respected as they can be dangerous due to their incredible size.
