Our Ms 9 loved her 30 min trek yesterday. The staff were very friendly and the horses were lovely. We paid $30 for a 30 min ride which seemed very reasonable. They looked after first-timers and children very well.

The Farm house is pretty big and large. You get to see Lot of unique and NZ local farm animals. They also let you feed the animals and click pictures. A good place to be.
