Horse Riding 

trail options

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 birds 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.

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 Sunsets over the ocean and the Moonrise over the mountains.  A short drink and snack break, and then 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
