I have been riding with them a few times and I also tried other rides on Muriwai beach but decided to stay with them. Nette is a very very knowledgeable experienced guide and professional in every way. She's also very familiar with the area and everywhere we go she always has stories to tell. Very patient and friendly. She would suggest the nice photo spot and took photo for you. Even though the ride and route is not so much different from other companies that runs in the same area. The service you get is no doubt the best!

We took 9 parents/non-riders and 9 riders with horses on a two hour trek with Nette. She is amazing. Looking a trail of nearly 20 horses all following along with her is quite a sight. Everyone loved it! This is our second year doing this trip and we will be back again next year.

My two (young adult) daughters and I did a two hour trek this week. It was great fun spending time with my girls! The trek took us through pine forest and along the beach. We loved it. Staff we're friendly and helpful, the horses looked well cared for and behaved well, even the meeting place and the starting point for the trek was great, not hot dusty yards like you often see when going for a trek. Of course the beauty of New Zealand was all around us and the whole experience was awesome! We would love to trek with Aboutriding again.

We did one hour horse riding with Aboutriding it was great! Good way to enjoy the views around Muriwai Beach. The horses are very good-natured in general. There was a group of kids riding right before us and they look like they enjoyed it a lot. If the weather was good they would let you ride on the beach too. Awesome fun time to spend with friends and family and the kids!

Nette is a great woman, loved every minute of being with her, Karlota and the horses! Horses are great and Nette takes care of each rider to enjoy the fullest of his / her skills. Feel free to let Nette take you on a beach ride, because she knows all there is to know ABOUT RIDING! :-)
