To be honest, I was terrified about the thought of getting on a horse and trekking along hillsides, but from the moment I arrived I felt welcomed and reassured about the experience. With my gentle giant, Harry, eager to get on his way underneath me I was given some sound advice on how to handle my new ride including how... More

We booked ahead online as we were passengers on a cruise ship visiting for one day. Oliver picked us up from Port Chalmers promptly at 10am and drove us back to his property. We were fitted out with appropriate riding gear and spent a lovely half a day with our friendly guide Cheryl and our two beautiful horses, Harry and... More

Stunning location with glorious views over Otago Harbour after a very steep ride through gorgeous farmland. Excellent horses in beautiful condition. Professionally run by Oliver, with great guiding by Alana. A cup of tea or coffee with cheese and crackers at the top of the ride. Due to the steepness of the terrain, no opportunity to trot or canter, but... More

I found Hare Hills online when i was looking for activities in Dunedin just after booking my cruise. Having ridden my whole life i was keen to experience New Zealand in the saddle and to my surprise so was my partner who had never ridden before. I can't thank Oliver and Cheryl enough for their hard work and efforts when... More

We chose the 1.5 hour trek up the hill, which held spectacular views of Dunedin and surrounds. The guides were extremely friendly and helpful. They chose horses suited to us, and gave a little bit of background on the horses to help us better ride them. We were also given a good level of instruction for riding too. We had... More

My partner and I did the beach ride just last week and both had a wonderful time with our guide Cheryl and our horses Harry and Snow! Cheryl was lovely and could give us lots of information about the area as we took in the beautiful views. I also got the opportunity to trot and canter on the beach at... More

Hare horse hill treks is a great place for treks, beach rides and lessons, whatever you are into! The horses are well looked after and carefully selected for each rider. Caters for absolute beginners to experienced riders. I would highly recommend this place for all. Cheerful, knowledgable staff along with beautiful scenery and lovely horses.

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
