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...

I've been having joint Riding lessons with a friend here for the past few months, and Oliver is such a wonderful person and teacher. We always leave our lessons feeling a sense that we have achieved something and that we want to go back for more as soon as possible!! We also did a beach trek with Sheryl recently and... More

We booked through Oliver earlier this year and it was my intention to give my girlfriend a trip on a horse again, something she had not done for a while. I organised the beach ride for us both. We were collected from the ship and driven to their place before picking up the horses. We had a gentle ride along... More

What a great experience. I took my seven year old daughter for a riding lesson as a special treat. Oliver was very friendly and a fantastic instructor. My daughter had a wonderful experience while I enjoying relaxing in the beautiful setting.

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
