Welcome to Black Horse Trails! I am Andrea, the new owner of Black Horse Trails along with my son Neo and the most lovely horses in the land!

We have survived the Garden Route Fires (27th Ocotber-4th November 2018) and continue our business. Please check on our rides page to see which rides are momentarily available, due to rehabilitation of the land and possibly exposure to too much sun. IMG-20180330-WA0019.jpg

Half of our horses are rescues. We rescue them either from neglect, abandonment, abuse and even near death.

We are a relaxed and friendly bunch and would like to welcome you to come and enjoy a precious few hours of your holiday time here with us. As a family run business, I can ensure a personal experience and share with you my passion for these sentient beings.

I was born in Germany and moved to South Africa 20 years ago. I consider myself a pure-blooded South African. I am fluent in German, Spanish and of course, English

Our rides venture out from our ranch into the indigenous forests of the Outeniqua mountains in the Wilderness outlines. We are the only trail ride in the area to offer this much indigenous forest for you to find your peace in. We also do not travel along any public tar or gravel roads. IMG-20180330-WA0011.jpg

We relocated from our old farm to this slice of paradise as it was  better suited place for us to offer you the best and most beautiful rides in the Eden district. 
We have suitable steeds for any level of experience. From beginner riders to experts, everyone is welcome!

Go to our horses page to see who would be the most suitable steed for you.

Please note that we are a cash only business. There are no credit card facilities this far out in paradise. You can arrange to do an EFT payment beforehand if you prefer, and bring/send the proof of payment.


We have a volunteer program, so please have a look at the page. If you are not able to volunteer, there are many other ways you can contribute, not to us, but rather our community. Contact us for more info.
