Arabello Stud Farm

Arabello Farm (Trading as Re-Turn Stud Farm) has been operating quietly in Derdepoort, Pretoria for decades; well known in the horse community, but unknown to the public. 

We decided to open up this amazing environment to share with those who have little to no horse experience, and for something different for those who do know horses. 

Thus was born “Meet the Minis”, a first of its kind in South Africa.

We are open to the public on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays.

We also have special visits that can be arranged for during the week, and we have holiday day camps.


We do have picnic sites with tables, table cloths, benches, and picnic blankets.

• We have a very small tuck shop with cooldrinks available to buy on site.
• You are welcome to bring your own picnic.

Horse Rides

• Riding on the Miniature Horses is limited to under 15kg and under 2yrs old.
Any children older than that are allowed to ride our Arabian horse. • If we have Black Diamond (the American Percheron, gentle giant) out, then adults may enjoy rides
All rides are done with a handler walking and controlling the horse.


• You are welcome to bring your own camera and take photos
• We do have an in-house
