Beach Horse Ride (2 Hours)
Experience horse back beach rides, with breathtaking views of Chapman’s Peak and Noordhoek Beach. You will walk down onto the beach where you will visit the Kakapo Shipwreck. Riders are allowed to trot and canter and our horses are superbly schooled and very rider friendly. Novice and experienced riders are equally welcome.
Our beach horse trails are two hours long and are accompanied by a trail guide. We take up to six riders per trail. Over weekends on the morning & late afternoon trails we can accommodate more riders with two trail guides.
Riding experience is not essential as we allocate horses according to skill, however you need to bear in mind that horse riding is considered an extreme sport. In accordance with Parks Board Rules no galloping is allowed on the beach and the ride will be kept at a walk. Exception to this rule is that riders may trot and canter if the conditions at the beach are conducive. The capability of the riders will also be taken into consideration before the trail guide allows the group to trot and/or canter.
