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

I was nervous about the whole thing from the get go, but it was something out of my comfort zone, and boy was it a whole other adventure in itself. It was my first time ever being so close to a horse I could touch it, let alone ride it. Being afraid of heights didn't help. Dzidra was there, lead... More

My daughter and I were on a cruise and stopped in Napier. Before leaving I checked on Trip Advisor for a good recommendation and booked this trip as my daughter is horse mad. We decided on the three hour ride to the river and it was well worth it and certainly didn't disappoint. As Dzidra introduced us to our four... More

Dzidra took my husband, 2 teenage boys and myself for a lovely sunset beach and wetlands ride whilst we toured NZ north island. The 3 males were beginners and I haven't ridden for 20 years. She took the time to acquaint us with each of our horses and instructed us on riding technique, filling us with confidence. The ride was... More

Thank you Dzidra for a magical morning adventure for me and my two spell bound daughters. You picked wonderful horses for Lucy (9) who rode Nugget and Iris (7) who rode Jazz. Preparing to ride and getting the horses ready was a great experience for the girls and being able to each ride their own horse on the beach, through... More

We had a magical time last night trekking with gentle and characterful horses through a beautiful estuary landscape to the sea beyond. I highly recommend a trek with Boutique Horsetreks. Dzidra is friendly, calm and reassuring, her experience with horses really shines through as does her love for them. We are all novice riders with children aged 9 and13 and... More

As a couple with mixed riding experience, Boutique really made sure we both got the most out of the trip. It was exhilarating. Would recommend this to anyone.

My two daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed riding Paddy, Nugget and Onyx. It was a great way to cover a lot of terrain and see a part of the New Zealand bush that we otherwise would not have seen. Dzidra was a terrific guide and made my daughters, who are inexperienced horse back riders, feel extremely comfortable right from the... More
