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

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

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
