Great way to spend half a day

Patient and well-behaved horses, delightful guides and fabulous views from up the hill. Tea and biscuits particularly welcome!

Our beach trek was everything we had hoped for. Cheryl led us on the trek and we couldn't have asked for a better person. She was friendly, interesting to listen to, clearly has a real connection with horses (and dogs!), and was in tune with our capabilities, making sure we had the best possible experience. From the second we arrived... More

My friend and I did the beach ride on Sunday and it was such an amazing experience. Cheryl is so friendly and clearly a true animal lover, the horses respond to her so beautifully, you can see the mutual respect between her and the horses. I felt safe and comfortable on the gentle "Harry" and although my skills are not... More

Amazing! The whole set up was brilliant. From the very start, everyone made us feel welcome and relaxed. I was a compete newbie to horses but felt reassured and relaxed as I was introduced to Mac. Alex had Lucas and she loved him. I will say that the trek was a lot steeper than I was expecting. We are in... More

During our roadtrip in New Zealand we wanted to ride horse on the beach and we chose Hare Hill Horse Treks at random and it was a good random. The ranch owner Oliver is very welcoming and kind. He loves more than all his animals and he knows how to relay you his passion. This is a family ranch far... More

I have always wanted to ride a horse on the beach even though I am not an experienced rider. I was promised a wonderful ride and was not disappointed. It was a brilliant experience and I was looked after one-to-one by Cheryl who was a lovely companion who thoroughly looked after me, ensured my safety and told me all about... More

We've done a few horse riding holidays and on our 21 days tour through New Zealand visited about four different stables. This one has stood out for us for a number of reasons: 1) The horses were amazing! Really responsive, well kept and looked after. As we were doing a lesson, we were able to tack the horses and get...

I'm an experienced rider who hasn't been in the saddle for a while. I LOVED everything about Hare Hill. Cheryl (my guide) was lovely, Mack (my horse) was one of the best I've ridden and Oliver (the owner) was helpful and kind. Will be back for lessons and aim to immerse myself back into horses thanks to Hare Hill welcoming... More

We did a two hour trek with two adults and 4 children (aged 5, 6, 2 x 10). Oliver and his team perfectly matched horses with riders ability. The view was stunning, the staff very friendly, and the hilly terrain made for a great ride. Would be happy to recommend to any level of rider.

We were promptly picked up from our cruise ship and traveled a short drive to the stables. They had the horses ready and boots and vests for the ride if necessary. It was just the 2 of us. The views were 360 degrees of spectacular bay views. Our ship started to look rather small from the top where we stopped... More
