1 on 1 riding lesson
Mar 2021
My 1 on 1 lesson with Amelie was fantastic, I have ridden on and off most of my life but i had never had a formal lesson and my confidence had taken a couple of hard hits. Amelie was patient, understanding and very competent. In an hour i was completing tasks i never thought i was capable of, her teaching style really works for me and i highly recommend these lessons

Great for beginners
Dec 2020 • Family
Was good, but they asked about experience prior, but all level riders were put together resulting in a lot of stops and starts with inexperienced riders. Staff were lovely but a little disorganized so was late starting.
Would highly recommend for any beginner rider as very safe steady horses and very good and experienced staff.

Awesome experience with Waimak River Riding Centre

Awesome trek with Waimak River Riding Centre
Did the 2 hour ride yesterday with Paige, what a fabulous way to spend a Saturday morning. Awesome horse Tono and the knowledge/company of Paige. She offered lots of instruction along the way, she has a lovely manner and clearly loves the horses she works with, especially Chip, her horse yesterday. Great scenery and a walk in the river on the return journey. Lovely well groomed/cared for happy horses. Also great induction and clear instructions given by Joffe prior to departure on the ride. Not my first visit to this centre and I will be back again soon. Thanks again.

Great first ride
Dec 2020
My two daughters loved their first experience at Waimak River Riding Centre and thoroughly enjoyed their half an hour Robin ride. The instructor was fantastic with the girls and did a great job teaching them how to ride the horses. It is in a lovely quiet area which made for great riding views and was good value. Would definitely visit again, hopefully without any rain. Thank you very much.

Brilliant for a birthday activity
Oct 2020 • Family
We took my daughter for her birthday with 2 friends (and older brother) and they all had a great time. Sorted out the right horses for height and weight, and gave a very detailed safety briefing. The trek was great, lots of interesting bits and trivia about horses to keep the kids interested. Very happy kids and parents. 10/10

An amazing experience for all the family
Oct 2020
The Waimak River Riding Centre accommodated our group of 8, ranging from 11 to 70-something on a one hour trek. Our guides, Nina and Sarah were friendly, helpful and informative. The horses were lovely; sensible and safe for our group that ranged from beginners to experienced. Everyone had a great time and would love to return.
