The serenity of a restful trot along the shore of the Indian Ocean is juxtaposed by adrenalin-inducing gallops; the bracing sea air filling your lungs and the cool wind in your face. This is the Papiesfontein Beach Horse Ride experience.

Papiesfontein is situated just outside Jeffrey’s Bay and about 70 kilometres from Port Elizabeth, right between the Gamtoos River and the Kabeljous River.

The entire ride covers a distance of about 13 kilometres and takes between two and three hours to complete. Almost half of the distance comprises an open stretch that is best enjoyed at a gallop, allowing the horse to share the exhilaration it experiences when allowed to run free. The views are spectacular and the horses are well-trained, friendly and obedient.

There is magnificent birdlife all around, and many species can be spotted along the way. Between July and December, whales are often seen breaching in the warm ocean waters. Experienced riders are given the opportunity to go on an unguided tour. Nearby attractions include Jeffrey’s Bay, the Gamtoos River and –Valley and the citrus-farming area of Patensie.
