Owner description: Welcome to Horse Trek'n. We have a brand new team of very dedicated young ladies this season, ready to take you on an unforgetable adventure. All rides are now split between different riding ablities, so if you are a genuine experienced rider, we garanty you'll have a fabulous experience. Our horses are well trained and take part in our riding school, jumping and dresage, as well as trail riding. For experienced riders, we recommend you try our full day trek so you get a chance to swim with your horse, but if you only have half a day, the volcano ride will offer you fabulous 360 views of the Bay of Islands and the Waitangi Forest. See you soon!

Lovely day out on the horses through the forest and up to the top of the volcano to see the bay of islands from afar. The lovely ladies at Horse Trek'n were extremely patient with all participants, there was a lady who was really not too keen on horse riding and they were all extremely patient and comforting.

I really enjoyed myself the rout we went was amazing, but I would have liked to canter or Gallup a little, and was quite expensive. But great in every other way.

My daughter and I had a terrific full day ride w/Clair for my daughter's 15th birthday. The horses were great and the scenery, from volcano to sea, was fantastic. Claire is a wonderful horsewoman and guide. Everyone should experience the beauty of New Zealand this way

Such lovely people and an amazing location in which to ride! I am an experienced rider and as such am often quite cynical about the quality of trail riding organisations, even those that claim to cater for experienced riders. But this Horse Trek'n was one of the good ones and allowed for experienced riders quite well. Obviously no trail ride... More

We wanted an interesting and challenging horse riding experience on our holiday in Paihia. As older horse owners who ride regularly, we thoroughly enjoyed our ride and now with the wisdom of hindsight we should have taken the full day program riding to the beach. Next time we are here we will. We arrived to find the horses saddled and... More

My daughter and I wanted to horse trek. She has a bit more saddle time, but not much. We were 'assigned' to the inexperienced group, which meant us, 2 inexperienced guides, and 2 folks who had some experience riding. We were not told that we needed to bring a bunch of water, nor that there was no water along the... More

Both my guides and I are very surprised at your review. On the trip and back home you told them how much of a good time you were having. I suspect the thing that triggered your bitterness is the fact that I would not drop our price despite of your insistance. Maybe you are the one who cannot afford the... More

Had a bad'ish experience on a horse many years back, but this trek was very chilled thanks to the horses and instruction. Really enjoyed the views, increased my confidence on a horse, so next time I will want to do a full day!

I have very limited riding experience but I felt comfortable enough on my horse to get up a trot. My wife has much more experience and cantered a few times. We got an amazing picture on horseback at the top of the volcano, and learned about life from our guides along the way. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

Our boy, 10 years old, truely appreciated the 2h horse ride in the forests and along the beach. The horse was lovely and the teacher well experienced. The teachers speak english, french and german which makes this destination easily accessible for people from abroad (we are from France) ;-)

I went riding with my kids (6&9yrs old) who have not really ridden before so I was nervous about them both being on horses and the guides were wonderful. They walked alongside us as that is what I had asked for and were friendly, relaxed and keen that we enjoyed the ride and the views. The horses were all beautiful... More
