We found boutique horse trekking during our trip around New Zealand. Neither of us had ridden before but Dzidra (the owner) put us at ease as we mounted the horses and she explain how to control the horses and guide them to where we wanted to go. It was a great experience riding along the beach in Hawkes Bay although... More

It must be everyone's dream to ride in the landscape of Hawkes Bay! Just came back from the Cape Kidnappers ride to the Gannet colony and it was absolutely outstanding! The dramatic hills, the roaring sea... I can not recommend this enough. The horses are extremely well handled and looked after and I love the natural way of horse riding... More

I really had a great time riding at Boutique Horsetreks with Dzidra. Although it was extremely wet so we only had a quick trot, it was fun learning about natural horsemanship and exploring the beautiful surrounds of the beach and farmland. Dzidra was a great host who allowed us a bit of freedom not like normal trail rides with horses... More

My husband and I went on the magical beach ride with Dzidra and had a wonderful time. It was our first time riding a horse and as beginners we found the experience amazing. We loved the fact the horses had no bit in the mouth and had been trained using natural horsemanship methods. We would definitely recommend this experience to... More

Thanks to Dzidra and Ronald for their warm welcome to boutique horses and for a great trek. I can't recommend them highly enough and if you get a choice of horses go for paddy! He's a half Irish, dare devil horse with 9 lives and the friendliest manner. Definitely my favourite. I will be back next time I pass through... More

Thank you Dzidra and a massive big thank you to a beautiful horse named Juice! The natural horsemanship training with no bit in the mouth was so refreshing and relaxed. Juice has an AMAZING canter, so smooth and easy to ride. Was such a beautiful time riding at sunset next to the orchards, in the river and along the beach.... More

I absolutely enjoyed the experience of riding with Dzidra, besides the amazing landscape, the nice horses and the way of training them was remarkable. I never have had a ride in a Westernsaddle or rode with a Natural Hackamore outside a Paddock and the first strides my german mind thought of the dangers, but then I saw how easy my... More

Dzidra truly individualized my ride! Horses are wonderfully trained in a natural manner; they respond with hackamores, no bridled bits in the mouth. Wonderful! I arranged my ride through a local resort, so I'm guessing that's the reason the ride was a little pricey than I think it needed to be. Be sure to take your camera. While Dzidra very... More

Thank you Dzidra for a really lovely experience. i hadnt riden for several years, and it was just great to spend time with you and your lovely horses. The scenery was beautiful, and you yourself are so knowledgable regarding the locations and all the wildlife. It was so interesting to learn and use the natural hackmore halters on the horses....
