My brother and I did the Sparkling River trek. Neither of had any experience of horse riding but were given a good brief on what to do. The ride and the views were fantastic and I imagine would be challenging enough for those with experience. I'll be recommending these tours to family and friends.

Today my husband and I had a fantastic trek. We had a confident, relaxed and friendly guide who instilled confidence in us and made our experience fun. The horses were obviously well loved and predictable. The route included a variety of terrains including beach, river and wooded areas. Would def do again, thanks.

Very friendly horses and guide. My daughter has always wanted to go horse riding, so a stroll along the beach was perfect. A lovely way to spend the afternoon while in Napier.Thanks

Having not riddden for a few years we enjoyed this ride so much ....sea shore, river crossings and country lanes - not to mention riding through the vines and lunch with wine thrown in!! Our horses, Tiara and Onyx were great and seeing natural horsemanship in action was special - No Bits - but great control.

As beginners we found the experience a fun and comfortable time especially as we were nervous as we had never ridden before. Thanks to Dzidra for being an easy going and amazing host. Thanks to the horses, Tiare and Nugget for being calm and patient.

With two small kids (5 and 7 years) and their non-horse-riding Dad (me) we went riding. It was an amazing experience, riding up the beach - the perfectly trained horses delivered and fun was had by everyone. Really worth the short trip into the country - highly recommended.

Kids (aged 7 and 9) had fantastic time. They both beginner riders and horses walked almost all of fun trek. Trek was through farmland, next to river and back next to the sea. Be prepared to get your feet wet. Would highly recommend. 🐴😃

My horses really do well with beginner riders and kids, they sense that they need to be extra gentle. It really makes me proud to take people out trekking with my beautiful mares. So glad that your family enjoyed the RIVER ride. Hope to see you back in the future for another ride! Dzidra More

We rode Paddy and Nugget along the seaside and it was an unforgettable experience! Dzidra is a wonderful hostess. She made us feel relaxed and safe. Her horses are very well trained! We bonded well with Paddy and Nugget! It was the first time we rode horses and glad our choice turned out so well! We highly recommend it.
