Cape Town Tourism posted this photograph of horseriders on Long Beach in Noordhoek, just below Chapman’s Peak, on their Facebook page recently – and we thought it was worth republishing here. Taken by African Pixels, the photograph received nearly 1 500 likes, was shared more than 60 times and a hundred people felt moved to comment, many sharing their experiences of riding at Noordhoek, about a 30-minute drive from Cape Town’s city centre.

Long Beach is an 8km-long, pristine beach – perfect for long strolls … or horse rides. Imhoff Equestrian Centre offers two-hour guided rides, while Sleepy Hollow Horse Riding offers a variety of horsey activities.
