Wondering what to do this weekend? How about Beach Horse Rides in Cape Town, South Africa?
Like the icing on a cake, our long, wide, white sandy beaches just add another layer of beauty to the spectacular topography of Cape Town. And what more fitting way to explore them than on the back of a horse who loves loping along the beach as much as you will.
You don’t have to travel far to find a beach horse riding operator - it’s long been a favourite pursuit of visitors to Cape Town as well as locals. Late afternoon rides capture the beauty of the sun dipping below the vast expanse of the Atlantic and bathing the beach in golden light as you trot through the lapping waves. Morning rides are all bright blues and whites and the green of the fynbos clad peaks around you.
The best horse riding in Cape Town is predominantly centred on the magnificent 8-kilometer stretch of coast - aptly called Long Beach. Stables are located just a short walk through pristine dunes and wetlands where you can sometimes spot small mammals like mongoose.
