Riding experience is not essential as we allocate horses according to skill, however you need to bear in mind that horse riding is considered an extreme sport and horses all have their own personalities.

The trail will be kept at a walk. Only in certain exceptions will there be a trot or a canter. In accordance with Table Mountain National Parks rules no galloping is allowed on the beach at any time.

Riding hats are compulsory and we do supply these. No hat – no ride.

Riders must wear long pants and closed, secure shoes with a small heel, which we supply if you do not have any.

When you book we need to have a clear understanding of your riding experience, please note the following when deciding on what level of experience you fall into:

Novice = less than 100 times

Experienced = more than 1,000 times and have competed, owned and ridden own horse and are currently riding.
