Thanks for an amazing horse ride

These guys are amazing - I booked last minute and yet Lizzy jumped to help me. Emma took me on the most amazing ride on a fine horse called Oscar. She gave me excellent tips on how to ride and kept me feeling safe and happy for the entire time. Very authentic people and in touch with their horses and with nature. Best day out I’ve had in years! Would highly recommend!

We're glad you love Oscar he is very much a peoples horse and behaves a bit like a big dog rather than a horse! :) We had heaps of fun taking you out and are so pleased to here you had a lovely morning! Cheers, Lizzy & Emma

Awesome

Great ride with fantastic views of Waitangi and surrounding areas of paihia, nice little stroll through pine forest, then on the way back went for a walk through shin deep water with the horses, a bit of uphill country riding, really good fun. The horses were very good for first time riders definitely recommend
