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 you. An excursion on horseback with Gansbaai and Pearly Beach Horse Trails is undoubtedly the most pleasurable way to explore this secluded and pristine stretch of Cape Whale Coast. Our team of good-natured horses and ponies love the feel of the Pearly Beach beach sand under their hooves, the spray of surf in their manes and the sweet smell of indigenous Fynbos, making these trails a truly unique bonding experience between horse and human.

Rondebosch Riding School & Trails was established in 2006 on Farm Rondebosch, Louis Trichardt in Limpopo Province. From humble beginnings, starting with only three horses, the business grew to a stable of over 20 horses and ponies, offering a safe environment for riding instruction for all ages as well as trails in the area, training of horses, horse carriage for events such as weddings and much more.

Sarah and her husband Kos, finally closed doors on their restaurants, and opened the riding school as a family business on their smallholding below the beautiful Soutpansberg Mountain Range in the far north of South Africa.

After nearly twenty years of life in the northern region, the family relocated to the South Western Cape in 2017, bringing their equine family along, and continue to operate horse trails in the stunning Overberg area, with mountains and endless pristine beaches as the new backdrop to the business.

With horses of all sizes, shapes and descriptions, Sarah continues to offer wonderful equine experiences and memories in their new home.

There are also two well appointed, self-catering cottages available on the farm, more information under accommodation.

We are an environmentally friendly business, adhering to National rules with no vehicles on the beach, leaving only foot & hoof prints in the sand, and never to be forgotten memories with our clients.

Trails are suitable for all levels of riders, and novices are very welcome and encouraged to experience a beach ride with a possible swim in the ocean, if weather permits. With our horses in mind, a weight limit of 95 kg applies.

Premium Beach Trail

Embark on a relaxing ride from the farm and through dune forest, allowing you and your equine partner to bond. The dunes often provide unexpected surprises in the form of diverse bird and wildlife, interesting fynbos species, and beautiful flowers. Then it's onto the pristine stretch of coastline where you get to see first hand how Pearly Beach got its name. The long untouched beach is the perfect place to allow your horse to show you what true freedom is, and a canter or gallop is surely the most exhilarating way! Novice or nervous riders will be well looked after, and can enjoy a placid walk or more adventurous trot.

Weather dependent, guests will also have the opportunity to swim with the horses. This has to be one of the most unique experiences, that moment of buoyant weightlessness as your horse's hooves lift off the ocean floor and you swim bareback in the swell.

Trail duration: approximately two and a half hours

Includes: Photo/drone video package when possible, as well as light refreshments.

Weight limit: 95kg

Special requirements: Swimwear (weather permitting)

Beach Trails are low tide dependent, and therefore departure times vary.

Cruiser, April 2023

“I took my family of five to the Pearly Beach Horse riding at the beach. We have no words to accurately describe what a beautiful experience it was. It was the perfect way to spend our day. It is such a rare experience coming from the United States to be able to ride horses and then swim with them in the ocean. The beach backdrop is breathtaking. We were staying in Cape Town, and while it was a drive to get there, it was well worth it. One of my children rides a few times a week while my other two had never been on a horse. Sarah and Kos were able to accommodate all of us at different levels and provide the same level of excitement and enthusiasm for all of us. They were a pleasure to spend the day with. The photos and videos Kos took for us were extremely valuable as we could be in the moment, and have the whole experience documented. It was a memory of a lifetime.” 

Nikita, 23 November 2020


Thanks Sarah and Kos!!! We had such an awesome time. Definitely one of my most favorite experiences ever!! From the moment we arrived it was laughter and fun! You both are amazing people and make the experience all the more worthwhile. Thank you SO much. Will definitely be bringing people back

Lauren 18 November 2020

Still on a high

My eight-year old, horse-mad daughter picked up the Gansbaai & Pearly Beach Horse Trails flyer in a restaurant ages ago and has been begging to go ever since. We had the most incredible morning and will treasure our memories of our beach ride forever - she is already asking when we can go again. Sarah and Kos are so welcoming and calm and immediately put me (the novice) at ease. I was sceptical about swimming with the horses but it was amazing and we came out of the water beaming. We learned so much and Sarah ensured that each of us was taken care of. As an added bonus, Kos takes the most fantastic photos so that you can relive your trip afterwards. Do not miss!

Larita 17 November 2020

The best Beach ride ever!!!

This was my belated Bday gift and it was worth the wait and every penny. Sarah and Kos are such lovely and funny people and they really take good care of their horses and riders. The Premium Beach trail had it all: Walk through the nature, fast gallop on the beach and in the water, swimming with the horses and an adventurous gallop through the dunes. The drone picture package is amazing as it gives you insane pictures and videos of your ride with the beautiful panorama of Pearly Beach. What amazed me the most was Sarahs ability to split the same group into beginners, advanced and experienced and to let each of them gallop at their own pace and at the same time provide the needed safety. We had a lot of fun and the horses are in very good shape and Sahara is fast like a race horse. I really loved the use of trail saddles as well. Thank you for awesome 3 hours on the back of the horse where the happiness lies.

Mind blowing

Stunning stunning stunning as if I was having a dream!! The best time of my life..... on a horse at the beach. What more can one ask for. Simply magical time with the hosts, horses and their family!! Will definitely see us again‼️❤️

Beach Ride

What an amazing experience! Sarah and Cos are friendly, helpful hosts and no matter what level of riding experience one has, this is a must for all horse lovers. The scenery is beautiful. Wonderful memories made with my daughter and definitely the highlight of our visit to Pearly Beach.

Not to be missed!!!

Do not pass up this amazing experience! Sarah and Kos are amazing hosts and guides. Your horse is selected based on your riding experience and you will not be disappointed. Riding on the beach has been a bucket list item for me for years and my fiancé and I loved every minute of it. Enjoy a relaxed ride through the dunes before letting the horses stretch their legs on the beautiful white sands of Pearly Beach. Take a dip on horseback and enjoy some drinks and snacks...truly unforgettable. Kos is a wonderful photographer and drone pilot, capturing this special experience, perfectly!!

Must Do Beach Ride!

Truly one of the most enjoyable and fantastic experiences I’ve had the pleasure in being apart of. This family is truly wonderful and make you feel the love. If you have never ridden or have always loved to ride, this is the experience you must have. Riding from their home on a trail 15 minutes away from the beach onto the beach and into the ocean and even swimming with the horses while riding bareback is just out of the movies. I have never been on a horse that when taken into the ocean tide, just laid down and let the waves splash against it. Truly one awesome ride and one that will never be forgotten. Don’t pass this experience up! A must do! :)

Pearly Beach Horse Trails: We loved it!

This was one of our favorite days in South Africa! Sarah took us riding (myself and two friends). She is knowledgeable, personable, fun, and her horses are very well trained. The horses are so sweet and friendly! Pearly Beach is breathtaking. It’s such a wide beach and we were the only ones there! We even saw whales in the waves. We stopped for a snack on the beach and she provided us with drinks and snacks. Sarah’s husband followed us and took photos and drone footage, which they gave to us afterward. 

I highly recommend Pearly Beach Horse Trails. It’s a unique and special experience that we all still talk about! We want to go back one day!

BWhispers, October 2018

Best horse riding trip ever.  This is the best horse riding trip I've ever attended. I registered trip advisor just to write this essay to thank Sarah's family for this wonderful experience. 

4 people followed the riding group to take care of the guests and take amazing pictures with a drone. Sarah led the group, her warmness and humor made us relaxed since the beginning of the trip, and her professional guidance provided me with unrivaled assurance, I didn’t have to worry about anything. (I’m a novice with bad riding experiences elsewhere) I was totally safe and free to enjoy the beautiful flowering dunes and the beaches. Sarah also tried to teach me how to ride and encouraged me continuously. 

Sarah made sure that all needs were attended to, and everyone who wanted a run or a swim with the horses got their chance, thus the 2hr trip actually lasted +4hrs. Swimming with the horses was a highlight that I loved, (weather dependent) the water’s cold, but once I was in there I didn’t wanted to come out. It’s only cold once you are out wet in the wind so pls prepare swimming suits or something to change, but you’ll be dry by the end of the journey anyway. Sarah guided us for the swim so she went into the pool with everyone, completely soaked for n times, can’t imagine how cold she was swimming again and again... feel sorry every time I recall this and I’ll definitely come back with proper gifts to thank her...

Very beautiful coastline, saw a whale around the swimming site, but actually found 2 whales in the drone’s picture later on, probably more. Snacks and drinks were provided @break. Received amazing photos and even a video few days after the trip. 

And they charge so little for doing so much, much less than the bad operators...
Many thanks to Sarah, John, Kos, Chris.

Magical Horse Ride

My 2 daughters (aged 12 and 9) and I did the Pearly Beach Horse Trail with Sarah earlier this week. I was nervous as I have not ridden for a very long time, but Sarah quickly assured me that the horse that I was to ride would look after me... and she did so beautifully. We started at a slow walk through some farmlands and coastal dunes. Once we got to the beach I was blown away. It was so beautiful, even though it was a cool and windy day. The girls canterd back and forth and had a wonderful time, while my old lady walked peacefully through the shallow waves. Sarah was very attentive to us throughout and we had a few good laughs. We stopped for some water and snacks ( that Sarah provided) at the halfway point and then ventured back to the stables. All of us had a most amazing time... all the girls could come up with was "Awesome!". I would recommend this outing to non riders and experienced riders.

jemeputter, Pretoria, South Africa, August 201

The perfect beach horse riding experience

They do it better than any other place could dream of. They absolutely love their horses and it shows. They adore their guests/clients and make them feel welcome and comfortable. Professional photos and drone footage is just one of the many value adding items. I would pay more than double for this unforgetable experience!

Frauke Jahns, Koethen, Germany, July 2018

Perfect all the way

Sarah and her husband went all the way to make this horseride a day to remember. They are lovely people and they care a lot for their animals, which I think is very important. It was the first time for us in the water, without a saddle. What an awesome experience! They even took fantastic photos as well as a video, which they sent to us a few days after the ride. Thank you so much!

Mr. Mat, July 2018

Our 12 year old daughter and her friend absolutely loved the beach ride with Sarah! Sarah was professional but also inviting and relaxed. She took very good care of the girls and made it a very special outing. The girls loved the sea swim, very special. The videos and photos we received were unexpected and very professional and special. Wow, we can only highly recommend this absolute treat!

Rasmustkknudsen Nottingham, United Kingdom 19 June 2018

Wonderful, personal and memorable

We booked the beach horse riding experience with Sarah on the same day and she excellently accommodated us. Starting on the beautiful, idilic farm we were introduced to the extremely well kept horses and how to ride. Before long we were riding along the stunning beach. They were very understanding of different abilities throughout and by the end we were all able to ride independently, trot and even try a canter. We were well supported and looked after throughout.

A fantastic experience, one of the best of our time in South Africa so far! Highly highly recommend!

Miriam 19 June 2018

Lovely afternoon horse ride

Had a brilliant time with Sarah horse riding. We rode to pearly beach, which was so beautiful. We walked the horses on the shore, trotted and cantered. She was very understanding about our minimal experience horse riding and talked us through what to do. We were led by her at first and then we got to ride without the lead. Would 100% recommend to anyone in the area.

Adri S 18 June 2018

Fantastic Experience!

Thank you, Sarah for giving us the most memorable experience ever! We loved swimming with the horses and we will definitely recommend this for our friends/family back in America!

Anelda 7 June 2018

One of the BEST kind!

One of the best riding experiences ever! Warm welcome. Horses in good temperament and well cared for. Each horse picked to fit each rider. Great scenery! It starts on farmland, then to fynbos, then some backroads and finally to the beach... which was absolutely amazing. And the bucket list was ticked by swimming with the horses into the surf. Amazing, totally safe and something to be remembered for years to come! The guide was knowledgable, greatly entertaining and had amazing knowledge to share as well as tales of old and titbits of the surroundings as we went along the route. Sarah, you were great. Thank you for sharing your time and allowing us to take part in an experience of a lifetime!!

Gerhard Gerber 5 June 2018

This was a real good way to introduce my son to horse riding. Sarah the owner even took him and his horse into the surf for a 'swim'. Great memories. And everything was done professionally and safely but with that personal touch you dont get anymore. Value for money for sure and highly recommended!

Debi B June 2018

What an incredible experience!

I would not have believed that I would willingly go swimming with a horse but I did and loved every moment of it. Sarah has a strong relationship with her horses who were relaxed and enjoying it almost as much as we were. I can wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who has ever entertained the thought of going horse riding. The beach is long and white and beautiful and this really is a day to remember. Thanks to Cos for the great photos.

Diana Valencia June 2018

This was my first time riding a horse on a beach and it was absolutely amazing! The horses are very well behaved and the people that guide you through the ride are also so great. They made sure to check up on everyone and tailored to all our needs. I would recommend this activity to riders of all experience, even if there is none! Additionally, the pictures taken were so beautiful!

Janice A 16 May 2018

One of the most amazing experiences ever!!

I have never been on a beach ride before let alone gone swimming with a horse! This was a great escape for me, the experience was thrilling, peaceful and mesmerizing. I will definitely be back for more!! Thank you Sarah for being a most hospitable host, for making me feel safe and comfortable at all times and most of all, thank you for an epic adventure!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Jason874 07 May 2018 ★★★★★

Its been over 20 years since i have sat in the saddle, but with Sarah's expert guidance and the gentle natured Troy it felt like i was back! A short dune forest stretch leads onto a long pristine white sandy beach that allows the horses room to trot canter or in my case a pleasant amble along taking in the scenery. At the end of the beach lies a quiet bay where to my delight the horses were led into the water for a swim, don't forget to leave your cell phone on dry land!!! What a unique experience for a novice or seasoned horse person. The whole amazing experience was about 3 hours and great value, I highly recommend this trip and will go again to blow out the cobwebs of normal life. i believe Sarah is planning a longer trail with overnight accommodation, please book my place NOW!

Raafs 06 May 2018 ★★★★★

Amazing a must do!

I must say I’ve done a couple horse trails around and his is by far the best I’ve been on. The horses taken care if very well and are in great shape and very nice to ride. The trail gives you a taste of different terrain as you start at the farm and make your way through a green covered route to what is one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve seen. It has no garbage and very clean waters. No other places offer a swim on the horse which is something very unique to experience. The horses are comfortable in the water and go on up to their neck. Was truly the best horseback experience I’ve had and couldn’t reccommend it more! Photos are included in the ride and are wonderfully taken. They also have newly renovated cottage that’s is very private and pretty for anyone wanting to stay over. All this topped off by incredibly friendly guides and photographer made it a memory I’ll have forever.

Keith L 05 May 2018 ★★★★★


We had the privilege of joining the beach ride along one of the most pristine beaches in the area.
The swim with the horses was absolutely amazing and something that will stick in our memories forever.
The horses are well trained and well loved and the backdrop of pearly beach is stunning. If you are in the area it's a must.
An absolutely amazing experience.
Thank you

Bucket list stuff..

Adi Reid, 2 April 2018

We had a wonderful time riding today with Sarah and her team - she is lovely and her horses are so well behaved. Beautiful ride for beginners or experts, through the fynbos, on the beach and a swim in the ocean. We were so lucky to see their 1 day old baby miniature horse - a sweetie pie. 
We highly recommend it.

Suzannah Bazell , 1 April 2018

Professionally run with a family feel, this is great fun and fab value for money. Perfect for beginners and experts alike. Sarah and her husband are lovely. Highly recommend!

Lere Pelser, March 2018


An absolute must! Big thanks to Sarah and her family - warm and friendly welcome so much so it felt like I have known them for years. Horses are all deeply cared for, fit and suitable for all ages. I love the fact that it did not feel rushed at all, lovely stops and a refreshing dip in the ocean with the horses. I will most definitely visit them again! LOVED IT!!!!!!!

Carel de Wit, January 2018


My teenage children and I, all beginner-riders, had a great outing with Sarah and her team. They really went the extra mile to make it enjoyable for us and the horses. Highly recommended! Dec 2017

Shira Guedalia, February 2018


During our stay in Gansbaai we were looking for fun outdoor activities and came across Rondebosch horse trails. We had the BEST experience. We did not have previous experience riding and enjoyed every moment. The owner Sara and her family took us out on the beach trail and took amazing photos of our unforgettable experience. Highly highly recommended!

Marizaan Hartzenberg, January 2018


Best riding experience ever, being able to swim with the horses in the sea. I definitely recommend this to any horse lover or anyone who wants to have an amazing experience while visiting Pearly Beach. Sarah is clearly very pasionate about her horses, including matching riders and horses depending on personality and experience.

Claudine Wheeler, November 2017


Absolutely amazing wonderful and once-in-a-lifetime experience... From whale watching on horse back, to exploring hidden dams in mountains, we've always had the most fantastic experience ❤️ Highly highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
