Our Horse Riding Trails

We have a full range of speciality trails awaiting you, all expertly guided by Sarah who has over 30 years experience guiding trails.  We endeavour to match you with the perfect equine companion on your trail, suiting your riding experience and personality.  See our frequently asked questions (FAQs) for information on what to expect, wear etc.  Please note – with our horses in mind, a weight limit of 95 kg applies.

Premium Beach Trail

Embark on a relaxing ride from the farm and through dune forest, allowing you and your equine partner to bond.  The dunes often provide unexpected surprises in the form of diverse bird and wildlife, interesting fynbos species, and beautiful flowers.   Then it’s onto the pristine stretch of coastline where you get to see first hand how Pearly Beach got its name.  The long untouched beach is the perfect place to allow your horse to show you what true freedom is, and a canter or gallop is surely the most exhilarating way!  Novice or nervous riders will be well looked after, and can enjoy a placid walk or more adventurous trot.

Weather dependent, guests will also have the opportunity to swim with the horses.  This has to be one of the most unique experiences, that moment of buoyant weightlessness as your horse’s hooves lift off the ocean floor and you swim bareback in the swell. 

Note – Premium Beach Trails are low-tide dependent, therefore departure times vary.

Sunset & Full Moon Trail

This very special trail occurs only once a month, and is a magical adventure.  Riders depart for the beach late afternoon, enjoy a ride along the white sand whilst watching the sky turn golden as the Sun sets over the ocean and the Moon rises over the mountains.  A short drink and snack break, and the return along the silvery sand under the light of a huge full Moon, accompanied by the wondrous African nightlife chorus of crickets, frogs, owls and nightjars.  Kos who accompanies all trails to take photographs and drone video, is also an astronomer, and can show you around the wonders of the Southern Hemisphere night sky.
