Wonderful trek over Cara's family farm and to Surat Bay. Cara is very knowledgeable about the area and history of the Catlins more generally! Beautiful and sweet horses too. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful 2 hour trek over the farm and down to Surat Bay. As others have said, Cara is an excellent guide and we enjoyed hearing about the area and its history. I recommend the beach ride, the views are amazing.

We had a fabulous trek down by the beach and across farmland with great views. Cara was an excellent guide and tailored the trek to our experience and needs. We would definitely come back again.

Cara and Glenys were fantastic hosts, helping to teach our young children on their first ride. They took care to lead the children down to the beach and then gave them an opportunity to ride independently on the way home. Thank you for a lovely and memorable afternoon.

We came back after a couple of years and enjoyed another amazing day with Cara and her lovely horses. My partner and I went on a stunning and sunny beach ride on absolutely easy-going horses. The fact that the summer season is over, left the beach only for us wich was awesome. Thanks again, Cara for the perfect ride! We'll definitely be back, again!
