The Forbach Stables is based in the north of Mauritius in the region of Rivere du Rempart, about 15min from Grand Baie and 30min from Port Louis by car. We are located in a quiet area surrounded by agricultural land, mainly sugar cane, making The Forbach Stables a very relaxing place to spend time and enjoy horse riding.

The Forbach Stables is a friendly, family run, yard welcoming everyone from new riders to those who are more advanced. We offer both horse riding lessons and trail rides. At the heart of everything we do is the wellbeing of our horses and yourselves as riders. Horse riding is both great fun and great exercise for people of all ages, we cater for everyone and we are open for your enjoyment 6 days a week.

If you would like to arrange a riding session please contact us.
Just wanted to say thanks a bunch for my day at Forbach stables, also that I had a great time on the beach ride thanks to an over excited horse. I think we did more cantering then everyone there put together :) Thanks again, and give Champion a nice big pat for me. Gracie - August 2013

Fantastic beach ride, made my dreams come true! Big thank you to Carla and the team at Forbach for arranging this amazing ride for me. Grace - January 2013.

My kids learnt to ride for the first time with Carla and her team when we were in Mauritius for a month. We attended around 4 lessons. Words cannot say how professional and knowledgeable Carla is. I was so pleased with her teaching and her attitude towards the kids. I could not have done better for my kids in terms of first exposure. I loved her teaching i have now decided to do this regularly when we go to Mauritius. And not to mention that the kids learnt so much in such a short time. I only wish i could have stayed longer there to continue >the lessons. Wonderful indeed. Thank you Carla and the team, you know who you are. Babita & Family, Germany. July 2012

I had the best time in Mauritius thanks to The Forbach Stables, you really made my trip the best! Great horses, great rides, for experienced riders aswell as beginners. Strongly recommended. Suzanna, Sweeden - June 2012.

Dear Carla, Honestly, we do not really know where to start...we had such an amazing day with you and your horses Caesour & Delta! Starting with a riding lesson we later went out into the sugarcane fields where we also learnt that the horses are very much addicted to the sugarcane. Although it was raining like hell we very much enjoyed the ride. Our day ended with an absolute highlight - the BEACH RIDE! Thank you very much for that exceptional experience, We wish you all the best and you can rest assured that we will definately come back, if ever we come back to Mauritius (we hope we can)! Much Love, Anita & Mike. From Germany.

My girlfriend and I took 4 lessons during a two week break. The stables are really easy to get to and Carla is a brilliant instructor. I had never been on a horse before, but by the end I was happily trotting around the arena! The horses (mainly ex race horses) are looked after well and we are already missing Dandy and Ceasour. We will definitely go back on our next trip, to try a ride in the sugarcane fields or on the beach. Kosa & Lucy

We really enjoyed our ride through the fields. I was happy to get the horse with such an easy trot-style. Everything was perfect, but Morgan, the dog, is the best! Anna & Alex from Russia

Me and my family had some lovely lessons at Forbach. Carla is a great and patient teacher and made us feel at ease, familiarising us with each of the sweet horses we rode. We'll be back. Thanks !! P.Lim Ah Ken

Tres anxieux a idée de faire du cheval (la premiere fois) alle balade m’a permis de me familiarise avec ce magnifique animal. Je me sens desormais prete a remonter. Tres jolie paysage et personnel tres accueillant. Merci Rubyma - France

Really enjoyed the riding lesson as we were both novices. We even trotted! This made us more confident to do the 1hr trail ride with 2 beautiful horses called Dandy & Caesour. Carla made us very welcome and we had a brillient experience. We highly recommend The Forbach Stables. Phil & Maxine Jones - UK

Wonderful family outride through the sugar plantations. The guides were super with the small children and the ponies absolutely adorable! A great experience and we will be back for sure! Candy, Skyla & Reagan - South Africa 10th August 2011

Hi Carla. my brother and I would like to thank you and your staff for the pleasant visit and ride we had at Forbach. You made it very comfortable and was very patient considering we were beginners.

Had a great time here, a lesson in the ring, then came back a couple of days later for a hack out in the sugar cane fields, a very enjoyable afternoon and good value. No language barrier.. English well spoken. Many thanks. Jill and Terry Colchester UK.

Hi Carla, i wanted to say that we all loved the horse riding session whether arena or outride, all my friends who came were very very happy and are ready to come back on the 15th maybe, there will be some new friends too who want to experience horse riding! :) Jo , Mauritius

We just wanted to tell you what a great time we had at your stables. Gavs first jumping lesson was great. Your horses are lovely and well kept. Samantha, Scotland UK

Hi Carla, I spend a wonderful time in getting to know the horses and the valuable techniques you initiated to me. Hopefully I would be able to put into practice if i have a chance to ride again here in Dubai. You been very patient with me...thanks a lot... )))) I miss Sparkle )))

Just addicted to the weekly sessions with Swiss. I really enjoy it with my friends. Those who love animals and horses will find it a must! Abdullah

C'etait vraiment bien, j'ai adore Momo. J'espere revenir bientot. Marion, Reunion

It was really fantastic and really exciting for the first time. Will be here for more experience. Thanks Navin & Satish Rivere du Rempart, Mauritius.

After 20yrs I started to ride again here. It was great! I enjoyed it very well. I will probably come back next year. Martine, Reunion.

Thank you for the great riding tours in Mauritius! Your thoroughbred horses are lovely and well taken care of, and they seemed to be enjoying the trips as much as we did! It was great to be guided by a professional 'leader' who knew what to do and was also able to instruct us in beautiful British English! With Love, Helena & Elisa From Finland

"During our stay in Mauritius we found our riding session at the Forbach stables thouroughly enjoyable. The horses were amazing and the staff were very accomodating. We were taken out on a super ride in the sugar cane fields making the whole experience one to remember. If we were to make a visit back to Mauritius we would not hesitate to come back to The Forbach Stables". Leanne & Chris

We had a beautiful ride out from Forbach, the horses and scenery were perfect - Thanks! Ruth & Stuart.

I had lots of fun out on a hack during my holiday in Mauritius. Thank you Hannah Bristol, UK
