Invitation: Horse Riding Educational
Horse Riding Adventure
Wildlife on Horseback
A horse riding adventure on the Sunshine Coast in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.
We’d like to invite you on one of our 7 day Beachcomber Horse Trails in April or May 2017. There are quite a few trade shows coming up over that time (WTM Africa, We Are Africa and Indaba between 19 April and 18 May 2017) and if you plan to visit South Africa for one of them, we’d be thrilled to have you on one of our rides!
Your clients will love you for it. We’ve been blown away by the responses from our clients and we want to offer the same to yours. Experience it for yourself.
Imagine galloping along remote beaches, exploring the coves and rocky outcrops along the way…

Spend 7 days on horseback discovering the secrets of the Sunshine Coast. You will ride along wide open beaches, cross rivers, and explore forests and grasslands riding with Africa’s wildlife.
Our trails spend the evenings in comfortable accommodation after long days in the saddle. You will stay over in a Beach House, a Guest House, a fun Beach Hostel and a quaint Farm Cottage to name a few.
“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!”
– Thomas, Germany
The educational will include time to visit one of the top wildlife destinations in the area – Sibuya Game Reserve – and spend time at The House Quarters (a new boutique hotel with a view over the Kariega River), as well as a visit to the Afrika Kusini Wellness Spa to rejuvenate tired bodies.
Required Skill & Fitness Level:
To make the most of our horseback trails, we recommend that riders are healthy and have a relatively good level of fitness (we’ll help you get fitter while on the ride!). Riding with us needs a degree of physical fitness, as these rides are not recommended for inexperience or unfit riders (we do offer beach rides for those who feel like doing shorter rides and not completely experienced enough for the longer trails). The Beachcomber trail includes different types of riding including long canters on sand, to relaxed walks with the wildlife we encounter along the way. We also swim with our horses through two rivers and do a few shallow crossings.
Our horses are a hardy mix of Arabian crosses. They are safe, well mannered and are very lively when needed but also happy to plod along with inexperienced riders. Our saddles are comfortable trail riding saddles and we use soft bits on all our horses.
The Tack and Gear:
We use trail saddles, made locally, designed for the comfort of both horse and rider alike. We recommend you wear half or full chaps with comfortable riding boots and a light weight riding helmet, preferably with good ventilation. We do have a limited number of chaps and helmets at the stables, but we highly recommend that you bring your own helmet and chaps.
Private transfers are available from Port Elizabeth or East London. We can also book you on a scheduled transfer.
