Thank you Lucy for an awesome ride on Sunday! The scenery is just stunning and it is so nice to ride with people who clearly love their horses. Lucy described the horses as her babies and this is evident in the care they take when tacking up, the quality of the equipment used and the nature of the horses. Happy... More

Wow we just had the best time! Breathtaking scenery, sweet horses, great guides and fantastic tracks! Guides were super helpful with our nearly seven years old girl who had never been on a horse trek. Highly recommended and we'll definitely come back!

From the horses, to the guides, to Lucy herself, (and even the dog!), this was the best attraction in Rotorua. As novices of various ages, we were slightly apprehensive of the one and a half hour trek, but were soon put at ease by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. My children (who are 20 and 17) said that... More

My daughter and I did the 2 and a half hour trek around the farm. It was wonderful listening to Lucy's stories of the history of the area and the farm. It was a wonderful day, even though it was incredibly blustery! The horses, Joe and Alfie, were great - superb manners and in great condition. Wonderful scenery, horses and... More
