German cavalry involvement in First Boer War?

My great grandfather,Simon Johann, a native of Dernbach, Rhineland Pfalz, supposedly fought as a cavalry soldier during one of the Boer Wars, but as far as I know there wasn't any official German involvement in the Boer Wars. He would have been 18 in 1878 and emigrated to the US in 1890. Any suggestions for where I might be able to research German cavalry deployment between 1878-1890? Thanks.
