What Our Clients Have To Say

Experience Horseback Trail Riding with Beach Rides, Wildlife Horseback Safaris, River Crossings & Forest Rides In The Sunshine Coast, Eastern Cape, South Africa

I’ve done more than 25 different horse trails all over the world, and I have to say, this was one of the most unique equestrian experiences I’ve ever had! We spent 7 days exploring this beautiful terrain and scenery, on well-trained horses, led by our very knowledgable guide, Jono. There were so many highlights… the river crossings, the long beach rides, the wonderful evenings with laughter and great food! The accommodation varied from a great beach villa to friendly farm stays. Thanks Jono and the Beachcomber team!


This horse trail exceeded all my expectations! It was the best trail of my recent horse riding journeys. From the hosts, Jono and his team, to the way the horses are treated. My horse, Abby, was an absolute pleasure to ride. It was wonderful to notice that the horses also enjoyed the trail. The diverse landscapes in this region of South Africa is second to none. The beautiful and extensive beach gallops were unique, and exploring the forest and bush with the wild animals made it a varied and exciting horseback trail riding experience.

Wow, I can’t believe our horse trail is over! I’m on my way home at the moment, sitting at the airport and decided to write you a ‘thank you’ letter before I fly out. I have so many good memories from my ride and I didn’t want it to stop. There was so much to see… the scenery changing from rocky outcrops to long sandy beaches, grassy hills and massive dune fields, and then the wildlife! So diverse and all this on horseback. And your horses are so fit and very responsive. Oh, and thank you for taking care of my dietary requirements!
