There are actually a few different options available to you. If you are an experienced rider, then there are great opportunities for you to hit the trail and enjoy yourself. The Giba Gorge is a great place to go and ride. It has been open to horsemen and horsewomen for over 10 years and provides an excellent area to enjoy riding.
What makes the place so great is that they not only provide you with a great course, but they ensure that the horse fits the rider’s talents. If you are a more experienced rider then you will get a horse that can handle the rigors the rider may put them through, however, if you are a newer rider they have the right animal with the right temperament to ensure that you can have a safe ride while you still enjoy your experience.
The Giba Gorge offers courses on how to learn to ride if you want to learn. They have experienced trainers that can show you how to handle the animal while also being able to feel confident and comfortable with the big animal that is beneath you. Riding is not as easy as many may think, but these trainers can really teach you how to take control and enjoy your time riding.
You can contact them to set up a training session. Fees are quite reasonable.
For those who want a little different of an experience, there are a few places where you can rent a horse to do a little beach riding. While not often thought of as much as riding the trails, riding along the beach can be a truly fun experience that you will love to do. There is nothing like the horse kicking up sand as you ride the animal down the coast. It is an exhilarating experience as the wind rushes across your face and you can smell the sea. You will love it for sure.
Not many people think of going horseback riding while they are on their vacation, but for those looking for a great experience, this is one you will not want to pass up. You will love the opportunities that Durban gives you to get in touch with nature just the way you like it.
