Splendid Horse trails through the indigenous forest in the new Garden Route National Park are an absolute must if you are headed to this delightful area of South Africa any time soon. If not you may need to plan a trip here soon. During these horse rides you may see the abundant wildlife common to the area which is also home to the Knysna Elephant. These elephant have recently been sighted at Berg Plaas.
Rides are structured to accommodate everyone and the trails are secure. Wilderness Adventures’ horses are well trained and gentle to allow you to explore these majestic forests at a pleasant pace on horseback. You will relish the freedom this experience will afford you of being wholly able to enjoy nature’s treasures.
All trails are supervised by highly experienced guides. The guides are fluent in English, German and also Russian.
Elbrus Ourtaev, the proprietor of Wilderness Adventures has worked as a stuntman in many international films, specializing in horseback stunts. Whet your appetite by booking to witness Elbrus in action, as he trains and works with our stunt horses or request a viewing of the promotional video on the stunt horses and riders!
Cossack Stunt Academy
Wilderness Adventures is managed by a family of talented Stunt riders and trainers. With instruction and demonstration relevant to you or your child’s age, you can learn the advanced techniques passed down from the Academy of Cossack riding in Russia.
The yard is designed as a fun place where kids will not only learn to ride and do stunts but will also learn how to take care of horses and to see these animals as truly noble beings that deserve loads of love and respect from us, their humans! We are not a competitive yard. Our focus is to build confidence, learn life skills and develop confident and caring riders.
We cater for the film and commercial industry by offering fully trained horses and riders to perform the tasks necessary to contribute to awesome cinematography. Quinton Krog, who has the lead role in the soon to be released film; Tornado and the Kalahari Horse Whisperer was trained by us.
Elbrus, the owner and head trainer of the Academy, has acted out the stunts for a long list of Movies and Commercials. Recently the Warner Brothers production 10000 BC was his latest achievement filming in the mountains of New Zealand, the forests of South Africa and the Namib Desert. Gallowwalker, a production with Wesley Snipes will still be released.
