About Byerley Park Stable’s Horses & Stabling Facilities

Our primary aim here at Byerley  Park Stables is to provide a safe, wholesome environment for children to discover a love for animals and the great outdoors, as an alternative to spending time in front of the television or in the mall.

We are located in Linbro Park, only 20 minutes away from Sandton.

Joan Harmsen, owner of Byerley Park Stables, is a S.A.N.E.F. (South African National Equestrian Federation) qualified instructor as well as a THS qualified judge, and has been working with horses since 1979.
