2 Hour Beach Horse Trail (Beginner 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.

AMAZING!!! Our guide was great, giving us all the info we need to stay on our horses, but not too chatty, so we were able to enjoy the peace and glorious beauty around us. We were the only people on the beach, it was truly amazing. Thank you so much. - Kirsti
