I have been riding with them a few times and I also tried other rides on Muriwai beach but decided to stay with them. Nette is a very very knowledgeable experienced guide and professional in every way. She's also very familiar with the area and everywhere we go she always has stories to tell. Very patient and friendly. She would... More

We took 9 parents/non-riders and 9 riders with horses on a two hour trek with Nette. She is amazing. Looking a trail of nearly 20 horses all following along with her is quite a sight. Everyone loved it! This is our second year doing this trip and we will be back again next year.

We did one hour horse riding with Aboutriding it was great! Good way to enjoy the views around Muriwai Beach. The horses are very good-natured in general. There was a group of kids riding right before us and they look like they enjoyed it a lot. If the weather was good they would let you ride on the beach too.... More

Nette is a great woman, loved every minute of being with her, Karlota and the horses! Horses are great and Nette takes care of each rider to enjoy the fullest of his / her skills. Feel free to let Nette take you on a beach ride, because she knows all there is to know ABOUT RIDING! :-)

I did a one hour horse trek with Aboutriding and really enjoyed it. I appreciated the care that Net took in selecting the right horse for each person, and the fact that she walked with us to the beach to make sure that we were not at risk from being harassed by motorbikes. Her daughter led our trek and was... More

We were looking for a horseback ride on the north island of New Zealand. We tried last minute to contact the only one listed on trip advisors and did get through to anyone. We called About Riding and got Nettie on the phone. She was able to take our group of four out later that day. Nettie and her daughter... More

Amazing landscapes and reasonable price! An Incredible experience! Tips: it will be really cold in winter and with strong wind! U'd better wear long sleeves clothes and sunglasses! Just enjoy it!

This was a wonderful experience. The landscape is breathtaking, and extremely diverse. Our 2hr ride took us across the surreal black sand of Muriwai Beach, through unique bushland, and across a gorgeous little pristine river. Each felt like its own little planet. Nette is lovely and very knowledgeable about the local area. It is quite novel to ride through areas... More
