Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Such a special experience all around. We had time to bond with the horses then take them for a beautiful ride on the beach. Our guide (regrettably do not remember her name and she was from Normandy) was incredible, patient and trusting. Would definitely recommend this beautiful place.

Thank you Dzidra for a fabulous horse trek experience! By greeting and getting to know our horses, learning techniques to gain their trust and obedience, and saddling up I felt so much more confident as a beginner when we stepped out on the trail. Dzidra is a great tutor and knows her horses intimately. The adventure ride was magical - a mix of surf beach, trail paths and even a river crossing on a beautiful morning. Paddy was a perfect companion to the trip - calm, obedient and friendly. Small group riding at its best - highly recommended

What an amazing experience. It was so lovely getting to know the horse and spending time learning about each other before embarking on a stunning ride - the mutual trust was there 100%. Tiare is a beauty and I hated leaving her at the end of the trek!
Beautiful horses, really well led tour with a great chance to learn about walking, leading, brushing, saddling. Fantastic day in the Bay.

Dziidra was a knowledgeable and obliging host, she was easy to contact and very responsive,. Dzidra chose the horse to suit the rider and , as beginner riders ,we have been laughing since at how our horses mostly controlled us !!!
The river crossing was great as was the beach ride , it was also lovely to see how much Dzidra cared about her horses.
we have already recommended her trek to our friends

This horse riding experience was thoroughly enjoyable. As a beginner horse rider I was very well looked after and my needs were individually catered for. Fantastic communication and encouragement from the guide and well trained horses. Would highly recommend this experience whilst in Hawke's Bay!

Thank you for the lovely horse ride on the beach. Paddy is a lovely horse who clearly loves the water. I appreciated your knowledge and the way you use natural horsemanship. Thanks again! 😊

I had such a great time on this ride - with beautiful weather, scenery & an individually catered experience with lots of variety. I found there was great, clear communication including the style of the ride (bitless & western saddle) & the cues the horses best respond to.
I had a fantastic time from start to finish!! I would definitely recommend Dzidra & Boutique Horse Treks, & I’m looking forward to going back again sometime soon!

A nice horse ride on the beach and next to a wetland where you can get wet in the ocean! The ride was done according to my ability which was great, and though there was some confusing communication to start with, it was good to be picked up from in town. One of the great things about this ride was how you get to get your horse from the paddock and assist from start to finish, which is not something many places offer.

I booked a trek for my daughter and wife. Dealing with Dzidra was very easy. The trek got the thumbs up. The set up was good, the horses very friendly. It’s a perfect trek for beginners.

The whole process was easy and reassuring, from booking with Dzidra, who was very understanding ans reassuring with all my tedious questions.
On Sunday afternoon we went on a beach tour. We were both total novices and very nervous, but Marcella, our guide, was amazing. We learned to walk the horses, and walked on the rocky beach as well as through the wetlands and we enjoyed our tour very much! A totally new experience and definitely highly recommend if you're in the Hawkes Bay area, to get amonst it and go for a horse trek.
