Wonderful experience. Scenery is stunning, horses are so well-behaved. Was great having the combo of bush track and farmland to ride over. Really enjoyable. Two hours was just the right amount of time. Highly recommend.

Brilliant horse trek, stunning scenery, well organised, great guides, and the horses are so well behaved and sure footed. Our group had Dallas, Joe, and peanut. My girls had never ridden before and they had two of the biggest gentle giants. Highly recommend this unique ride to see some of the most beautiful scenery in NZ.

This is our send time with Lucy and her team at Lake Okareka Horse Trekking. We did the 2.5hrs and the 3hrs, both on great horses and the farm it beautiful with stunning views of the Lakes. Horses are calm and responsive with great fitness. Recommend Lucy and her team any time of the year - think we would like to come back in the winter and see the difference. We will definitely be back next summer to do it all again.

This is the second time we’ve ridden with Lucy, and both times it’s been awesome. The farm is beautiful, with spectacular views, and there’s a great mix of horses to suit beginners and experienced riders. The way the treks operate means both new and returning riders can have an enjoyable time. We are experienced and did the 2-hour ride; last time we did 3 hours. Both are highly recommended
