Garys Beach Rides is located in Warner Beach, Durban, KZN. This small piece of paradise is only 20mins South of Durban and boasts some of the widest and longest beaches in KZN. What better way is there to enjoy this scenery than on horseback?

Gary can accommodate from novices to professionals as well as the old and the young. Riding lessons for adults and children are also available. Special requests for children’s pony parties with pony rides or a donkey cart rides are very popular.

We also do horse drawn carriages for weddings in the Durban area. If you would like to do a ‘horse’ themed photo shoot, please contact us. Please note, booking is essential.

About Us

Gary has been taking riders to the beach since 2002. More recently he acquired his own stables on a bigger  premises in 2012 where he stables up to 24 horses.

His love for his horses keeps him busy from the cry of the roosters in the morning until the cry of the hadedas at sunset 🙂

A horse doesn’t care how much you know until he knows how much you care.

Put your hand on your horse and your heart in your hand.


Happy Cowboys

Gary keeps a close eye on his horses & their riders at all times, but if you have some experience he will readily let you take your horse for a gallop down the beach. Nothing beats that!




We had such a wonderful ‘Old Mac Donald’ Themed party at the stables with donkey cart rides and feeding the horses carrots.

Thank-you so much to Gary and Eloise  for making Olivia’s 2 year birthday party so special .
