Beautiful safe well looked after horses to ride on a gorgeous day with our fabulous host Dzidra. Moana, Paddy and Juice took great care of us and made sure we had a lovely time. We definitely will make this a regular event. Saoirse and Jennifer.

I was originally booked on the beach ride but then ended up going on the winery ride and I'm so glad I did! What an experience- great riding with stunning views! Dzidra was lovely and really knew her horses well. It's a must do if you're in the Hawkes Bay Area!

it was magic! After 20+ years since I last got on a horse, I had the opportunity to do a sunset ride in the surf with Dzidra. It was so much fun! Think I'll get back into horse riding again! It was safe for all level of riders, the horses were great, the landscape is amazing. Seriously a must do.

From the Sea to the wineries this was a great journey! We rode for about 3.5 hours navigating along the sea side, through the wineries through the river and ending at a winery with a amazing lunch. Thanks for a great tour and memories that will last a life time!

An amazing trek, the horses were beautiful and Dzidra was absolutely lovely. I rode horses throughout my youth, and had never ridden one sans bit before, but it was a welcome change, the horses were still fully responsive, and especially seemed to enjoy splashing in the sea. A must do!

I had a great 2 hour ride with Dzidra with an almost swim! in the river and a ride along the beach. It is certainly a different style of riding than I am used to but it has to be the most relaxed ride I have ever been on. My horse "Nugget" was absolutely lovely and a pleasure to ride.... More

I visited New Zealand's North Island for a month in January and this was one of the top highlights of the whole month! Riding in crashing huge waves, with sweeping turquoise pacific views, and horses so calm and steady yet completely spirited by the beautiful nature around them- it was a new found happy place! This beach ride woke up... More

I've ridden with Dzidra several times now and I love it. She uses a different way of riding by not using a bit for the horses and that gives more spontaneity to the ride and allows us to see every horse's personality! I never thought I would literally swim with a horse but that happened on the river ride. It... More

Excellent 4hr ride out along the ocean beach through the wineries, fruit orchids and even through a river. Dzidra is a mine of information, a very knowledgable and relaxed horsewoman, providing well trained and experienced horses. Would thoroughly recommend this excursion to novice and experienced alike. If you want to extend your time here, the Stables Cottage attached is a... More
