About
Gansbaai & Pearly Beach Horse Trails invite you on a memorable horseback adventure that will take you through a dune forest and across the pristine white sandy beaches of one of the most tranquil stretches of the Cape Whale Coastline. Enjoy individual and knowledgeable attention from your personal trail guide, Sarah Coronaios, who will share with you her passion for horses and the Overberg. Southern Right Whales are plentiful in season and the lure of a dip in the cool blue Atlantic beckons on hot trail-riding days. With over 30 years of hands-on experience in riding instruction, natural horse training and trail riding, Sarah Coronaios would like to share her passion with other horse enthusiasts. An excursion on horseback with Gansbaai and Pearly Beach Horse Trails is undoubtedly the most exhilarating way to explore one of the most secluded and pristine stretches on the Cape Whale Coast. Two well appointed, self-catering cottages are available on the farm.

What is better than a white sandy beach on a horse back? This horse riding experience was just amazing! Sarah and her team made sure that everybody had what they needed. The trip was for advanced and beginners at the same time. And myself as an advanced horse rider was able to do a lot of gallop and had just such a good time. I highly recommend them and will think back of this trip for a long time!

Omg what an experience pure white empty beach sand dunes and whales bobbing In blue ocean. Sarah her husband and friend what a team . Sarahs love for the horses passion and experience shines through. My husband was a bit unsure when I suggested the idea but he hasn’t stopped talking about it. Sarah looked after him and was so reassuring. We swam in the sea bareback cantered on the beach and up the dunes. We now have pictures and video which were taken memories forever. It was a highlight of our holiday thank you keep doing what you are doing x

We were lucky enough to have a private trail just for our family. It was a great experience and one we will remember for ever. It was so much fun and Sarah and her team were exceptional in making sure we got to enjoy galloping along the beach, swimming with horses and dune riding!

We had a great ride with Sarah, Kos and their team. They managed to accommodate both me (experienced rider) and my husband (novice) in a way that we could both have a great experience. Galloping on the beach was just a dream come true!

Most tourists consider game viewing on safari as the highlight of a South African adventure, and while I had over-the-top sightings in the bush at a top camp, my experience riding a horse on Pearly Beach was phenomenal. Sarah, who leads the horse rides, caters as well to the novice ( me) as to the experienced equestrian, in a manner that seems super human.
Most horse rides that advertise a beach ride go mainly through a trail, then a few minutes on a beach, then back on the trail. With Sarah, though, you are on the beach ( which itself is breathtakingly gorgeous) for hours, and she maximizes everyone’s desires about how to use that time — including an unforgettable experience of riding your horse bare back into the ocean that is chest deep to the horse. The kind of thing you might see in a movie or promotional video but don’t think you could ever do. But Sarah pulls it off beautifully, gently guiding each rider in a setting whose beauty is out of this world. You’ll likely even spot whales just off shore if you’re there in season.
And as a novice, there was never even a hint of feeling unsafe. The horses are extremely responsive to their riders.
If you are anywhere near Pearly Beach, and have ever wanted to ride a horse on a beach, this is your chance. It will be the single best use of your time in the Gansbaai.

I felt on top of the world.

Galloping on the open sand, splashing through the water was the best experience ever!
You treated me like family, treating me like royalty. Even though I almost tasted sand😎. Will definitely book again. Eden Janse van Rensburg.

We had a fantastic and sunny day on the horses and absolutely enjoyed this memorable experience. The beach was stunning and we could even watch whales. Sarah, the whole team (and of course the horses) were just wonderful, super friendly and even as a bloody beginner I felt very comfortable all the time. Thank you so much!!
