Went on a horse trek today, the horses were well taken care for and knew what they were doing. Amazing views and the staff there were really helpful and since I was a beginner they helped me a lot. 100% would do this again, worth your money

Lizzy and her team were lovely to deal with. We were match to placid steeds which certainly match my very novice experience. The hour long ride was enough for my partner and I having not ridden for 30+ years. It made a great hange to our usual activities and would certainly go back for a longer ride next time we're in Paihia. Loved it..!

We had a fun day of horse riding in Paihia. The horses are well cared for; they are personal horses loved by their owner, you can tell. Tack was good and in good shape. Nice trail. Not your typical horse rental trail, but a real forest trail: up hills through trees. We even took the horses into the bay for a short treat. And the views from the top are spectacular. Overall a fabulous day.

Lizzie and Alex are lovely people who make sure visitors have the best time, regardless of their experience level. As we were complete beginners, Lizzie took us through the basics and was always happy to answer whatever questions we had. The beautiful horses we rode were calm, and clearly very loved and well looked after. The backdrop to our gentle ride was a stunning view across the Bay of Islands (all captured by Alex with his pro photography skills). Such a fab way to spend a half day! Can't recommend these guys enough if you fancy exploring the region on horseback!

Well worth it. We did the swim option and was fun--my isowfe's favorite of all we did in New Zealand over 2 weeks. Great for novices as well as experts. Great group leaders and owners--a fun half day!
