A great way to spend an afternoon in the country in the Hawke's Bay region. Dzidra, the owner, does a great job of making you feel at ease and working with you at any riding skill level. Nice, well-trained horses too. We rode through some beautiful countryside and along the beach and river. A must-do if visiting Napier!

My wife and I had a wonderful time with Dzidra on our half-day horse trek. We so enjoyed our ride over The Farm at Cape Kidnappers' gorgeous property, even though high winds prevented us from reaching the gannet colony. Dzidra is warm, friendly, highly professional, and extremely knowledgeable about the local geography and wildlife, in addition to horses. The horses... More

I had a fantastic time on the beach trek! Dzidra was a wonderful guide and Paddy the horse was beautiful and so well trained and calm, so easy to ride. I am a beginner rider, and Dzidra made the whole experience so easy and lots of fun! Plus Dzidra takes pictures as you ride, a great memento. Highly recommend -... More

Dzidra is a wonderful host. She has trained her horses well, and knows them as people-their tendencies, habits, and personalities. The horses are beautiful, and kind mannered companions for the morning. The scenery is beautiful! We went to the Clive River and took the horses for a swim. How many can say they have swam with horses?! Dzidra also takes... More

I was staying in the apartment attached to the horse trek yard and rode out several times - along the beach, on a river ride, and at the beautiful Cape Kidnappers. All the rides were incredible and the horses are a joy to ride. The way Dzidra teaches and reassures riders is great and she is a pleasure to ride... More

Thank you Dzidra for a truly special experience! Your passion for horses is contagious - I feel like I made a great new friend with Moana. I couldn't believe how calm and well trained the horses behaved despite those fireworks. The spectacular scenery really raised this ride above others I've done. It was all around a perfect trek, thank you... More

Great day out with the horses and Dzidra - the guide/owner. Dzidra is really an experienced and passionate guide who loves to see you interact with the horses, and to enjoy the trekking. Unlike some sourly guide (whom i experienced before) just wanted to get it over and done with, one can tell that she enjoys being out with us.... More

Thank you so much. Meeting people such as yourselves makes my job so enjoyable. I believe in creating a wonderful experience for people who have never ridden or only been on a horse once or twice. Taking a little extra time, makes all the difference. Hope to see you again when you are back in NZ! More

What a wonderful experience our beach trek was. Dzidra started with a brief explanation about our horses and then provided simple instructions on how to ride them. The horses are so loved and well cared for any wonder they have beautiful natures. I felt completely at ease & safe on Moana even when Dzidra played the Simple Simon game &... More

Thanks for the lovely compliment. Moana is our newest horse and she really is awesome. She is only 3 years old and is so calm, so safe, and loves the beach. Her only problem is that she also loves grass, and sometimes it is challenging to ask her to stop eating and continue her ride. All the horses have taught... More

Thank you Dzindra for the excellent trek. Moana was awesome and seemed to enjoy herself as well. You gave a really good introduction to the Natural Horesemanship theory and practice of riding. The scenery and route were both interesting and picturesque. I hope to repeat the experience at some future date. Thank you again Chris R
