About Us

With over 35 years of hands-on experience in riding instruction, natural horse training and trail riding, Sarah Coronaios would like to share her passion with you.  An excursion on horseback with Gansbaai and Pearly Beach Horse Trails is undoubtedly the most pleasurable way to explore this secluded and pristine stretch of the Cape Whale Coast. Our team of good-natured horses and ponies love the feel of the Pearly Beach beach sand under their hooves, the spray of surf in their manes and the sweet smell of indigenous Fynbos, making these trails a truly unique bonding experience between horse and human.

In 2006, Sarah and her husband Kos established Rondebosch Riding School & Trails on their smallholding below the beautiful Soutpansberg Mountain Range in Limpopo province in northern South Africa.  From humble beginnings, starting with only three horses, the business grew to a stable of over 20 horses and ponies, offering a safe environment for riding instruction for all ages as well as trails in the area, training of horses, horse carriage for events such as weddings and much more.

After nearly twenty years of life in the northern region, the family relocated to the South Western Cape in 2017, bringing their equine family along, and continue to operate horse trails in the stunning Overstrand area, with mountains and endless pristine beaches as the new backdrop to the business.  Sarah & Kos also renovated two well-appointed, self-catering cottages available on the farm where guests can experience the peace and tranquility of this beautiful location.

Pearly Beach Horse Trails is an owner-operated business, and Sarah guides every trail.  Kos accompanies the trails capturing all your memories on photo and video, including drone footage wherever possible.  Kos is also a passionate astronomer and member of the Astronomical Society of South Africa.  Guests staying overnight on the farm have the opportunity to enjoy the on-site observatory and Kos’ expert guidance of the night sky.  Sarah & Kos also offer Sunset & Full Moon Trails for intermediate to experienced riders for a truly unique experience.

Pearly Beach Horse Trails is an environmentally friendly business, adhering to National rules with no vehicles on the beach, leaving only foot & hoof prints in the sand, and never to be forgotten memories with our guests.
