Booked in Glamping accommodation and had an amazing weekend. Admittedly I had my best friends with me and the facilities in the tent were out of this world, from the log fire to beautiful sheets but what really made the trip was the awesome staff in the office that made our weekend so special thank you Jordan and Tom. Weekend of beautiful memories 😍

Booked for a day trek in January. Had torrential rain thunder and lightening so the ride did not proceed due to safety. We showed up in person despite the weather and agreed this with a staff member. We’re invited to rebook as long as they had 24 hours notice in advance (I have the email from the business owner). Suggested that we would be back in February but due to two covid lockdowns in Auckland we were unable to make this work (sorry - outside of our control). Emailed today asking if we could rebook for April. Received the rudest email saying no - they are no longer operating and we had three months to rebook - it’s only been two but whatever! Asked for a refund and have received no reply. Feel completely ripped off given we paid up front via their website and the comms are incredibly disappointing given we are trying to support local.

My 75 year old mum and 13 year old daughter went on a 1 hour ride with Pakiri horse rides, they rode through a river, sand dunes and on thee we beach, the staff were wonderful, very encouraging and the horses were great, definitely bigger than the usual horse rides however gentle and easy to manage. We’ll he back for the longer rides soon.

My friend and I booked the half day trek. I ended up booking via phone as there was an online booking fee, which the owner seemed surprised by, so I was happy I got to speak to her on the phone, which also let me discuss more fully our levels of experience and what we were hoping for on the ride. On the day we shared the trek with a teenage girl - so a small and equally capable group - and Tessa was our guide. She was excellent: friendly, knowledgeable, and conscientious. Every time we moved beyond a walk she would check in with us that we were happy to trot/canter/gallop - and she checked in after too. She was alert to potential dangers and had insight about each horse’s character and how jest to manage them. The scenery - beach, dunes, forest - was stunning. We didn’t properly read the signs saying we should ask for photo opportunities, so missed out on that but it would have been nice to stop at some point for a water break anyway - especially in the heat of summer on a multi-hour trek. These are minor points however, and on the whole, we thoroughly enjoyed our ride.
