2 Hour Beach Horse Trail (Intermediate Riders)

Jeffreys Bay

Activity Description

Experienced guides escort riders twice daily along the 13km circular route that takes about two hours to complete. The trail leads through beautiful fynbos coastal vegetation, towards the Gamtoos river with breathtaking views from the dunes and finally returning along a 6 km stretch of deserted beach where riders can have an exhilarating gallop on the sand.

The guides escort every group and assist riders in selecting horses just right for their respective capabilities. This outride is ideal for intermediate and advanced riders, though in quiet times, we also accommodate first timers and beginners. Experienced riders can choose not to go with a guide and have the freedom to explore the valley at their own pace.

RIDING EXPERIENCE
If You have different experience riders in the group – please make separate bookings for Beginner, Intermediate & Experienced Riders. Riders of different experience will have the same departure time but will have horses that suit their skill and group will be split into rider capabilities during the trail.

BEGINNER CLASS:
Ridden a horse only on trail rides. Do not know what a posting trot is about. This is you if, when the horse goes into a trot (second gear), you start hitting the saddle hard, have no way to control it and are hanging onto the saddle for dear life.
INTERMEDIATE CLASS:
Have been taught how to trot and canter and understand how to control a horse. Can ride without holding onto the saddle and are not pulling on your horse’s mouth.
ADVANCED CLASS:
Can jump fences, can handle a bucking rearing beast and turn it back into a trail pony.

Customer Reviews

Such a great day out with the team at Papiesfontein! For a nervous, first timer - the guides made us feel comfortable and safe, while still having fun. The horses were well cared for and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the day, and cannot wait to come again! - Megan


It was a lovely experience, feeling one with nature and connecting with my horse was a great experience. The beach part was the best part of the ride for me? - Ria


Amazing experience! Would highly recommend the beach horseback trail located at Pappiesfontein. You will be at awe at what beauty, nature has to offer. We have been for our third time, we are already planning our fourth. The trail ride is guided with excellent companionship. Trust that you are enlightened and will book your own adventure. 5/5 - Ellé
