We’re based in Kenton-on-Sea, Eastern Cape – in the heart of the Sunshine Coast. We offer beach horse rides ranging from 1½ hours to several day adventures on pristine beaches as well as game rides in the spectacular Sibuya Game Reserve.
We provide exciting beach rides for all ages and experience levels. From gentle walking on steady horses to galloping through the surf with experienced riders. The riding areas that we cover is of the best in the world with endless beaches and coves to explore. The horses are hardy, fit Arabian crosses, most of which have been bred by us and are part of the family. We also do overnight safaris and multi day rides.
Your horse will be one of our beautiful Arabian crosses bred for their temperament and endurance.
Beach Ride – Feel the wind in your hair…
Start your ride along the stunning beach near Bushmans Village. Here you will experience the excitement and freedom of exploring the vast un-spoilt space of open shores stretching ahead of you. There are many small coves and rocky outcrops to explore. On top of one of these headlands we find the Cross (or Padrao) erected by Bartholomew Diaz in 1488, the famous Portuguese navigator and discoverer of the Cape. This ride is an amazing experience and there is lots of space for skilled riders to have a gallop. Alternatively, try a safe canter on the softer sand if you are inexperienced but adventurous! We have various beach ride options. On longer rides we’ll have picnic lunches. Taxi available for up to eight people.
