About Noordhoek Beach Horse Riding
Go splashing through the surf, enjoying a sunset horse ride along 7 km of powder white beach. Noordhoek’s Long Beach is arguably the best beach horse ride anywhere in the world!
There are currently three commercial horse riding establishments in the area. With their vast knowledge of horse riding and horses, Chris and Louise Spengler (the owners of Afton Grove) will be able to direct their in-house guests to the stable best suited to their needs, whether you are a complete novice or an accomplished rider.
As this is an extremely popular activity, it’s advisable to book your ride at the same time as booking your stay at Afton Grove. There is also the option of a one-hour bush ride for the 8 – 14 year olds and 30-minute pony rides for the 2 – 8 years old.
Trail guides accompany up to six riders. Over weekends on the morning and late afternoon trails up to eight riders can be accommodated with two trail guides, however arrangements need to be made in advance.
Riding experience is not essential as horses are allocated according to skill, however you need to bear in mind that horse riding is considered an extreme sport and in accordance with SANParks regulations no galloping is allowed on the beach and the ride will be kept at a walk.
Guests may wish to visit a local racing stable (by arrangement) or stud farms further a field. As our valued in-house guest, speak to us about your particular interest and let us arrange a visit on your behalf.
