I once worked on a horse farm for a month and I tell you it is no easy experience pitching hay, riding horses and carouseling them across the beach. It’s hard work but very rewarding. Not far from the seaside village of Kommetjie, along the M65, you’ll find Imhoff Farm and the Imhoff Equestrian Centre (www.imhofffarm.co.za), where guided two-hour beach rides are on offer. Travel on horseback along the water’s edge down the long and beautiful Noordhoek Beach towards Chapman’s Peak and back. Three rides are accommodated daily between 09h00 and 18h00, depending on the season. The minimum age for riders is 12 and a range of experience is catered for. The horse riding school also offers lessons with qualified instructors. Imhoff Farm has a fully licensed à la carte restaurant, craft shops, a tea garden, snake park and camel rides. Booking is essential. Sleepy Hollow Horse Riding (www.sleepyhollowhorseriding.co.za), established in 1975, hides in the heart of the beautiful Noordhoek Valley, at the base of the world-renowned Chapman’s Peak Drive. To experience breathtaking views of Chapman’s Peak and Noordhoek Beach from horseback is a delight not to be passed over. Visit the Kakapo shipwreck and watch indigenous birdlife on one of the Cape’s most beautiful white beaches. Take in a sunset over the Atlantic Ocean or feel the wind in your hair while cantering along the seashore.
