Outeniqua Moon is a Percheron stud, in Ruiterbos, Mossel Bay, run by a group of incredibly passionate people, who are determined to keep the breed alive and well.

Percherons have been bred throughout history for their incredible strength and overwhelming beauty. They were used by royalty in countries across the world to pull carriages, and were essential to the farmers who used them to plough their lands. During the Medieval period, Heavy Draft Horses were fully armoured and carried knights into battle. Being the work horses, Percherons were replaced by machines during the industrial revolution, when they were no longer needed.

Outeniqua Moon offers us all the opportunity to interact with these beautiful gentle giants, with carriage-rides around their magnificent grounds - with a backdrop of the Outeniqua Mountain Range and sweeping views of Leeukloof Valley.

They also do tours around the farm, where you can learn more about this rare breed, and get the chance to interact with them. Outeniqua Moon is also home to Shadowfax, the biggest Percheron ever bred in South Africa. The children’s playground even has a small touch-farm, with rabbits and Miniature Horses. Enjoy tea, cakes, light lunches, and Sunday lunches on the veranda overlooking the mountains, watching the Percheron's grazing happily in the distance.
