I really enjoyed every minute of my beach ride with Hare Hill Horse Treks. Oliver took the time to learn my riding skill level, and what I was looking for in a horse. He selected his beautiful Irish horse Shannon. Shannon was an absolute angel throughout the ride, and when it was time to run on the beach, that pretty... More

3 of my teenagers had an awesome time at Hare Hill Horse treks. The guides set them up really well for the ride and the kids felt like they knew the horses even before the ride began. They did the farm/ hill trek and said the views were amazing and the ride was a lot of fun. The guide was... More

I had a wonderful day with Hare Hill Horse Treks. Cheryl was our guide, and she was wonderful. The horses were well behaved and good natured, but ready to pick up the pace and race along the beach when they were asked. The whole set up was rather amazing, with several different beaches to ride on, and some beautiful scenery... More

We had a lovely ride. My husband has never really ridden and was very well looked after. I was able to have a few lovely canters along the beach. Oliver, the owner was very friendly and a wealth of knowledge on the area and NZ in general. And I fell in love with Lucky the adorable family dog. With hindsight... More

I love horse riding and try to ride as often as I can. I've not been lucky enough to have a horse to ride regularly for most of my life, so am well used to trekking centres... But this was a place with a difference. Really accommodating friendly hosts, immaculately turned out horses that looked the picture of health, high... More

The ride itself is a little bit disappointing - you walk in single file as the trail is steep and windy but afterwards there's an arena where you can ride - trot, canter and jump. The hosts are lovely and very helpful, matching you well to your horse

We did the beach ride and the scenery was lovely and we saw seals on the beach. Unfortunately i rated this as poor because the ride really only caters for people who don't ride much. The service was good and there was nothing overly bad about it. we just felt that for $300 we would have got a bit more... More

My wife and I enjoyed an afternoon beach ride with Hare Hill Horse Treks. We had to adapt to riding English saddle from Western saddles we were used to. Yet, we truely enjoyed the sun the surf and the sand on a sunny Winter day riding horses along the beach at the head of Otago Bay.
