If you're looking for a horse trek in NZ this is a must do! Hone and Wai were the best hosts we could have ever asked for and we will most certainly be back. For this review we did the 6hour hike. To start our day Hone introduced us to our beautiful horses who were all exceptionally gentle and calm (we were one intermediate and two beginner riders). We started trekking and Hone explained the incredible terrain we would be covering, steep hills, forest and a running river. Our horses were sure-footed and relaxed for the ride, we we're well looked after! We stopped of for a delicious handmade lunch from Wai whilst overlooking a running waterfall. It was truly breath taking. For the entire day we scaled hills, navigated through trees and waded through a river. This day was an adventure and not a run of the mill ride. This was by far a day to remember.

My partner and I did the overnight High Plains trek with Hone in April 2019. We had high expectations based on the glowing tripadvisor reviews and it was even more amazing than we could have imagined! Hone is an amazing guide, friendly and funny – super down to earth. I couldn’t believe how authentic this experience was – nothing like anything we had ever done before in New Zealand - a true kiwi experience. We travelled up to a hunter’s hut in the Tongariro park through beautiful scenery. We went offroad, navigating our horses through the forest and even managed a river crossing. It was an absolute blast and the very small group (my partner, myself and Hone) made it even more special. Thanks to Wai for making us a mean feed when we got back from the trek! Ka Rawe! We will be definitely doing another trip! Awhina & James

I joined Hone and Wai on a 2 day horse trek and I cannot begin to express what a great experience that it was. The utmost for me was that I got to experience Tongariro with natives of the land - Hone knows this beautiful place like the back of his hand. My ride on Memphis was exactly what I was seeking as someone who has been away from horseback for a number of years. Hone could have offered both more or less challenging rides but this was perfect for me. J

I did one of the longer day treks and it was by far the best horse riding experience I've had in years. We had a group of brand new people (never ridden a horse before) to experience riders, and we all really enjoyed it. We got off the beaten path, saw amazing parts of the forest, and had a blast. I can't say enough about how helpful and nice our guide was. The horses were in excellent condition and it was a great experience.
