Beach Horse Trails

Embark on an enchanting equestrian adventure with Beach Horse Trails in Jeffreys Bay, located just 10 km outside the town and a scenic 70 km drive from Port Elizabeth. Nestled between the Gamtoos and Kabeljous rivers on the picturesque farm Papiesfontein, this special piece of land seamlessly combines bush, river, and beach to offer riders an unforgettable experience.

Experienced guides lead riders twice daily along a captivating 13km circular route that unfolds over approximately two hours. The trail winds through stunning fynbos coastal vegetation, leading towards the Gamtoos river, showcasing breathtaking views from the dunes. The journey culminates with a return along a pristine 6 km stretch of deserted beach, providing riders with a unique opportunity for a canter in the shallows or an exhilarating gallop on the sand.

This horse trail not only promises a thrilling ride but also offers panoramic views of the surrounding area, allowing riders to spot diverse bird species, tortoises, bushbuck, and marine life. The prospect of whale watching from horseback adds an extra layer of excitement to the experience. Keep an eye out for seals basking in the sun, and the rare African Black Oystercatcher, often found near the Gamtoos river mouth.

Guides accompany each group, ensuring riders are paired with horses that suit their capabilities. While the trail is ideally suited for intermediate and advanced riders, during quieter times, first-timers and beginners are also accommodated. For those with more experience, the option to explore the valley without a guide provides the freedom to set their own pace.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of Jeffreys Bay’s natural surroundings, from lush bush and riverside views to the tranquility of a deserted beach, all from the vantage point of a majestic horse. Beach Horse Trails promises not just a ride, but an opportunity to connect with nature and experience the joy of horseback exploration.
