Come Ride on the Beach With Us

“Heaven on horseback is riding through the surf on a fine thoroughbred horse.”

This dream can become a reality at The Dunes beach horseriding stables in Noordhoek. We are just south of Cape Town off the famous coast road leading to the Cape of Good Hope. The Dunes riding stables is built on the sand of Noordhoek Beach - the longest, whitest and most spectacular beach in the whole of Cape Town (if not the world)!

Amble along the shoreline of this 5-mile beach and explore the ancient shipwreck. Splash through the seasonal lagoon and trot through the grassy sand dunes. Advanced horseriders can gallop on the race horse training track parallel to the beach, while beginners ride at a leisurely pace and admire the exquisite views of Chapman's Peak mountain dropping into the aqua-blue Atlantic Ocean.

There is no better place to horse ride than Noordhoek Beach -
come ride with us and experience it for yourself.

Ride a Race Horse

Apart from offering beach horse rides, The Dunes is also a racing stables. About forty thoroughbred horses are in training at The Dunes Racing Stables, and they compete at Cape Town's two race courses every week. You could be taking a beach ride on a retired winner, who now has a more leisurely life as a trail riding horse. Your ex-race horse will go as fast as you like, but they are quite happy to plod along at a walk, trot or steady canter.
