Bush Trail Rides

Our incredible Bush Trail Riding includes wonderful scenery, and regular sightings of bird life and wildlife. You get to enjoy a feeling of being completely away from the hustle and bustle of city life, despite being only a 20 minute drive from Durban Central!

Especially suited towards days when the wind is too strong to go to the beach, days when the beaches are too crowded, and for those wanting a more budget horse experience. Our bush trail rides are enjoyed by all.
For these bush rides, we are willing to take children from as young as 5, and our weight limit is extended to 85kgs.

All our rides, including the bush trail options, are accompanied by at least 1 experienced guide to keep our guests safe and on the correct trail. Before the trail starts, you will be shown the basics of how to ride, and all along the trail the guide will be happy to help you learn more horse riding.
Our guides will also do their best to point out anything of interest in the bush, from chameleons to unusual plants, as well as all the birds that frequently get seen on our trail.
