Trek with the best view in the world

So much fun. We enjoyed glorious weather, an incredible view and some very curious piwakawaka as we rode our beautiful horses. Neither of us are riders and we were both well looked after. Highly recommend. Thanks team!

Thank you so much Lizzy for an amazing ride, the view, the patience and the memories for the 1st time rider my 8yr old. We all had a great time and will certainly be back.

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your experience - we love sharing our horses with people who are riding for the first time and giving them a positive experience - so that hopefully they can enjoy horses and riding for many more years to come! We hope to see you both again soon! Thanks, Team Horse Trekn

Worth a try

We booked this because I never rode a horse before. The host young lady was quite friendly and lovely. Only regret is I wish we’ve asked her to take more photos( she offered to take photos for us but all the photos taken were at the same spot and they are pretty much the same). Also if you don’t know, riding a horse is more painful than I thought it would be. My bum was in pain for nearly one week. Don’t know whether it’s the seat not set up properly or anything not right. Also our legs were scratched by the belt thing on the horse( I was wearing long pants). So just be prepared before you go:) and let them know if anything is hurting you
