Wonderful private lesson for very happy 10 year old. We booked a private lesson for our horse-mad 10 year old when visiting Dunedin and were really, really appreciative of the professionalism and kindness at Hare Hill Horse Treks. She learnt heaps and had a wonderful time. Such a beautiful location too. My only tip to park by the road at the bottom of the driveway as it's pretty steep heading up there. Thanks Hare Hill

I experienced the most unforgettable beach ride with Hare Hill Horse Treks. A warm welcome was first on offer from Oliver who clearly is a passionate man about horses. I had the pleasure of riding his horse Mac. Cheryl who I rode with is the kindest lady, it was like riding out with a good friend.

Luckily I am a competent rider, and under Cheryl’s safe and accommodating guidance we were able to canter and gallop along the beautiful Aramoana beachfront in the glorious sunshine.

This was a literal childhood dream come true, where I would head back to Dunedin in a heartbeat to do this again.

If you are looking for an unforgettable beach ride experience with some amazing people and good natured horses, this is the place to go. Thank you Cheryl, Oliver, Mac and Tonto!

What a wonderful experience! Thank you to Cheryl and Kiara our amazing guides who were very friendly and helpful at reassuring myself a beginner rider as well as accommodating my daughter who is an experienced one. We took a beach ride with Tono and Mac along Aramoana. What beautiful horses we can’t wait to come back!! Kia Ora

My family absolutely enjoyed our horse trek. Beautiful, calm horses for 4 beginners. My husband, 2 children (8 and 10) and I found the scenery stunning and we finished off with a lovely hot beverage and snack. The staff were friendly and passionate about their jobs. Would definitely recommend.

The horses and guides at Hare Hill are first class. They even had full equipment you can borrow (chaps, boots, jacket and helmet of course) which I've never encountered anywhere else.
The guides were informative and friendly, they made us feel really welcome and cared for. They obviously have a great respect for their animals too with lots of positive encouragement.
Definitely recommended 👌

I had an incredible experience and beach ride with Oliver, a true horseman. I learned so much about the area and the horses from him in a short space of time. The horses Toto and Mac were hunters and amazing to ride. Toto was so responsive, I felt so safe he is such a beautiful horse. The beaches were stunning I got close to an albatross and sea lion and the exhilarating experience of cantering and galloping along the sand it was just incredible! True once in a lifetime experience. I would love to do it again!! Thank you.

Thank you so much Victoria I had a great ride too. DOC drove round the harbour and picked up that fledging Albatross so that it could try its wings again, hopefully with more luck. It would find it difficult to take off from the sand hills Yes !!! come back again Oliver

Riding horses on my holiday in New Zealand was very high on my list of activities as I am a rider and farm owner at home. The beach trek was perfect! Oliver was the consummate host as he picked me up from Larnach Castle in the morning and drove around the harbor to the stables, telling me a lot of Dunedin history as we traveled. The horses were perfect gentlemen and the ride on the beaches was exactly as I hoped! Cheryl was fantastic... couldn't believe she brought tea and snacks too! I arrived in New Zealand just the day before so this was my first full day and starting it off with a beach ride under the sun set the tone for the entire trip (it was amazing). Thank you so much!!

Thank you Oliver & Cheryl for a lovely ride. Oliver rang me the morning we were due to ride to ask if we would prefer to reschedule or continue the ride, as it was raining, cold and windy. We rescheduled to a stunning day and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My children aged 8 & 10 had never touched a horse before and Oliver took the time to teach them all about horses, giving them time to relax before we started. Both Cheryl and Oliver were very kind and patient with the kids, and the horses were nice and calm. My kids had a fantastic time, and I did too. The views were spectacular!

Thank you to Oliver and Laura for an amazing horse riding experience with our family. Oliver's knowledge of the area being a local of many decades made for very interesting talks during our time there and was such a wonderful difference from typical cruise shore excursions. This was the first time I've booked an activity that wasn't through a ship and I will never look back!
The horses were beautiful and the view was the better than you could ever imagine. The trek was peaceful and our 6 and 8 year old girls had an amazing time (this was our 6 year olds first proper time on a horse and she found it very easy). They haven't stopped talking about it! We would do it again in a heartbeat and the cost was far cheaper than I ever expected. Thank you Oliver and of course to the horses - Lucas, Cassie, Summer and Jack!!

My husband and I did the beach trek in the morning and it was absolutely beautiful. I am not an experienced rider and I was genuinely quite nervous before the ride, but thanks to Cheryl patient guidance and expertise I really enjoyed the experience. I can only recommend this place, they take great care of people and horses. Tonto and Mac, our horses, were the most well behaved sweethearts we have ever seen! The landscape is absolutely gorgeous which is a bonus!
