On the 22nd of October 2019 we hold the third edition of Race the Wild Coast. If you’re interested in signing up, then read on and find out about this new breed of horse race. Riders, with a team of three horses, compete for victory over 350km of rugged paradise on the remote east coast of South Africa; navigating through this challenging wilderness, swimming rivers and keeping horses fit for vet checks in this complex multi stage race will challenge the endurance of any horseback adventurer.
