If you are in the Hawkes Bay, this is an absolute must do as it is an amazing experience. Straight away Dzidra made me feel comfortable and completely safe. I got to meet the the lovely Juice (the horse I rode), put glitter in her mane and afterwards feed her some chestnuts and apples. Before the ride I was introduced... More

Without a doubt the best thing I have done in Hawke's Bay! As a first time horse rider, Dzidra made us feel comfortable and completely safe. From the moment we arrived it felt like we were riding with a best friend! We were able to prepare the horses for our trek, decorate them with glitter and feed them after the... More

I stayed in Dzidra's hostel over in Napier and heard about the horse treks over there. I had to think about it but riding in NZ was one thing on my bucket list. As I don't have a car I didn't know how to get there. Dzidra offered to pick me up. As an experienced rider I was afraid of... More

Thanks so much Anja for that wonderful comment. It makes me feel so good that people such as yourself really appreciate all the hard work I put into the horses. I train them daily and am getting better and better results. More

Never ridden a horse before. Found it a bit scary but the Leader(Dzidra) was very reassuring! Jim S Hastings

A must do experience if your visiting the Hawkes Bay, the owners truly care about the horses and ensure that you are suitably matched both in size and personality to a great steed, in my case Paddy, and my wife's Nugget both did what they were instructed to do and made us a pair of total beginners believe that we...

My husband and I did the winery ride to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. We started our experience by brushing and getting to know our horses Paddy and Nugget who were both delightful and were given a brief lesson on how to ride the horses using natural horsemanship. We are both very inexperienced riders, however it did not take us... More

My husband and I did the river crossing with Dzidra while visiting New Zealand on our honeymoon. We had a fantastic time brushing out our two horses, Nugget and Patty, before the ride even began! The walk through the river was a unique experience, as was the walk along the beach. Dzidra also took some fabulous pictures of us!

We did the river crossing trek and you'll want to wish that it wasn't over yet! It was a fun trek and a memory worth remembering. Dzidra was very friendly and always made sure to help us get along better with Paddy, Nugget, and Juice. Definitely a 'must-do' for anyone stopping by Napier!
