Natalie and I spent a fantastic few hours on the backs of Harry and Lucas, two beautiful horses, being accompanied by Alana who was very friendly, chatty and a good tutor to two people with no horse riding experience to speak of. The horses are trained to follow eachother, but even so it was great fun being given the reins... More

We arrived at Dunedin in October aboard a cruise ship and had booked with Hare Hill on our own, prior to arrival. We were picked up promptly at the dock and a short car ride took us to Hare Hill. When we booked, we had the option of riding horses in the hills or along the beach. We choose the... More

I went on this because my son have me a voucher for my birthday, it is not something I would have thought of doing myself. I went alone and ended up with a group of three overseas tourists. I had a great time, the horses were well behaved, the people were helpful and pleasant. The views were wonderful. Am attaching... More

My boyfriend and I had a great experience with Cheryl and Oliver on the beach. I've ridden heaps and my boyfriend has not but they accommodated both of our levels so I could have a gallop in the beach and he learned how to trot! After the ride we had a lovely mid afternoon tea and enjoyed the sunshine!

My sister and I took the scenic harbour trek. The view was absolutely beautiful. We also got to sit down and have a snack at the top of the hill and of course take some beautiful pictures. We were lucky with the weather. It was warm and sunny. The people were also really nice and we loved the way they... More

For the past 6 months I have been trying to convince my boyfriend to do a horse riding trek with me. When we arrived in Dunedin he finally gave in! Hare hill gave us a perfect experience. My boyfriend had never ridden before and Oliver and Cheryl matched us up with ideal horses. We did a scenic harbour trek which... More

If you want to avoid the crowds from the cruise ship and do something different, then I highly recommend horseback riding with Hare Hill Horse Treks. Our ride was very private (just my husband, myself and our guide). The scenery is just beautiful and the ride was very enjoyable. Don't worry about your horseback riding experience, they will cater to... More

The day we were scheduled to do a beach ride, the weather was unseasonably awful. It was raining and the winds were 25-35mph. We arrived at 8am and were immediately invited into the Goldsmith's home and offered coffee and toast. We chatted about horses and New Zealand for a bit and then joined Oliver up the hill to feed the... More

Prior to our cruise around New Zealand, I researched horseback riding opportunities at various ports and found Hare Hill Horse Treks in Dunedin. We reserved a ride with Oliver Goldsmith via their website and through emails. Oliver met us at our cruise ship and drove us to the ranch. Three of us had a wonderful 2-hour ride high up into...
