There are around 200 feral horses in Kaapsehoop, ranging from bachelor herds to larger more structured herds. The horses are synonymous with Kaapsehoop and are one of the main attractions in the picturesque little village, which has in recent years become a sought after holiday destination in South Africa. Not all of the wild horses are shy and some are often seen frequenting the town where they graze on the open squares and the village streets. While hiking or going for a horse ride you are also sure to see them frolicking on the plains. Please drive with care when approaching the village and along the roads of the town, as the horses like to stand in the road and are especially difficult to spot on misty days.
