2 Hour Beach Horse Trail (Beginner Riders) Voucher

Jeffreys Bay

Activity Description

Experienced guides escort riders twice daily along the 13km circular route. The trail takes about two hours to complete, leading 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. Here on this isolated beach, riders can canter their mounts in the shallows or have an exhilarating gallop on the sand.

The trail provides magnificent views of the area and affords ample opportunity to spot a variety of bird species, tortoises, bushbuck, plant and marine life. Imagine whale watching from horseback!

You may see seals basking in the sun and the rare African Black Oystercatcher is always to be found near the Gamtoos river mouth.

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

Customer Reviews

Our family were treated to a memorable outing when we visited Papiesfontein Beach Horse Rides last month. Our daughters ride but my wife, son and I are novices and they handled all of us brilliantly! Our guide, Jan, was very patient and encouraging with us and the horses were great too. After dirt roads and narrower trails we made it onto the dunes and finally the open beach. You could walk all the way, trot as much as you want and/or open up on the beach for a full out canter or gallop - if you wanted. What a great experience ***** - Greg


Good Morning It was really a fantastic experience. I will definitely come again as I enjoyed it very much. Your service was very good - Nicolene Bekker


We had an awesome or I may say amazing experience, and honestly we were very scared as it was our first time but guess what? After few minutes of riding the fear was gone , your team is amazing especially the guy who was led us to the dunes. How can I forget the laughter that we shared during the riding, it was 1 in a million we will definitely call again much love [>_<] - Sanelisiwe Notyesi


My wife and i were really first beginners. Never before i sit on a horse. So it was like a little adventure for us to do a two hours riding. But we had a wonderfull riding through different landscapes. Very impressing was the riding throug the dunes and in the sea. Our guide always take care of us. The horses were calm and we never feared any problem. Thank you for this wonderful experience. Christa and Joachim - Joachim Schnurrer


Had an amazing time horse riding with Papiesfontein Beach Trails! We all were literally glowing afterwards with excitement (and glowing because we didn't sunblock up first haha - definitely should have taken the extra time to slip slop slap beforehand). I felt so comfortable with three guides there to help the whole time and ensuring we were always safe. Plus I want to say a big THANK YOU to Truti for looking after me - she is well-deserving of an apple :) - Deanne
