Our Horse Treks
Scenic Harbour / Hill Trek (1.5 to 2 hours) – Enjoy stunning harbour views. We take a leisurely circuit through farmland and plantation, and then back down the winding farm track. Refreshments are provided en route. It is a safe rewarding trek for beginners but fun for all levels of riders.
Beach Ride (3 hours) – Spend half a day with the horses on the beaches of Aramoana. This ride suits beginners or competent riders with a MAXIMUM of two people per trip. You may view wildlife from horseback, including seals, sea lions, and penguins. Advanced riders will relish the opportunity to gallop along the white firm sands.
