Horses and Horse Riding With Wild Coast Horse Trails
Our Horses are very much loved and the special relationship we have with them ensures that you have a wonderful horse riding holiday. Each horse has been hand picked or home bred for the purpose of trail and safari riding. Besides good confirmation and movement, we select our horses for their exceptional temperament and then school and educate them to be professional at the work that is required of them. We use "natural horsemanship" principles, developing their trust and a willingness to want to work with us. Our horses are kept out 24/7 in natural herds, they are barefoot and are schooled in English style in the arena and a relaxed western type of ride out on the trail. The horses well being is always our first priority, they are the personalities that make your riding holiday exceptional.
We have a mix of Part Arabs, Anglo Arabs, Thoroughbreds, Percheron crosses & South Africa Boerperd.
The average height of our horses is about 15.2hh. We find that this is a good size horse for holiday riders and they are light and sure footed along the sandy beaches and rocky headlands. We have a good selection of horses that suit most riders from nervous novice through to advanced.
The horses are exceptionally fit (Julie-Anne & Ashley are Endurance Riders), responsive and forward going. They are kept on good pastures, and fed the best concentrate feeds. They are regularly dipped, de-wormed, vaccinated and kept in the very best working condition.
Here is a selection of some of our favorite photos. Enjoy !
