Owner description: Horse back ride with Briar through peaceful kiwi fruit forests, alongside the beautiful Kaituna River and across magnificent farm land. Situated south of Te Puke in the country side at Paengaroa. Get away from the hustle and bustle of life and ride your horse among stunning New Zealand farm and forest with sun dappled trails, calves and sheep.

Two adults, two kids. Two of us had experience two of us had absolutely none. Beautifully well mannered horses/ponies suitable for all levels. We did the 90 min trek and had loads of fun! Opportunity for our group to split so that my daughter and I could go faster than the two inexperienced riders. Amazing views of the kaituna river. The guides were talkative and friendly. Felt very at ease with them and impressed with their professionalism. Highly recommend to riders or first timers :)

We had a fantastic time at Briars, on a one hour trek. Friendly service, well-behaved horses, and a beautiful setting. The native bush and wildlife was incredible.
Thanks Briars

Briar is so friendly and relaxed, just like her horses! I took three children who had little to no experience of horses and they are now totally horse mad! The horses were all well behaved and easy to handle. The scenery was beautiful. A great day out. Thank you Briar

Many thanks to Briar and her team for giving my daughter a great experience on the four times we visited. My daughter loves horses and was allowed to interact with the horses before and after the rides. The horses she was given were well mannered and responsive and she managed to get some trotting and some cantering in. The price was more affordable than last year. The instructors were also very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to our next visits next year !

The ride was amazing. I really enjoyed myself we tasted the wine berries they were yum! the horses and instructors were friendly and I recommend going for a ride for all ages you will have an amazing time. -Nicole
First time I had been a horse for 30 years was freaking out but when I met the instructors I immediately knew and felt comfortable that I was in great care of the guides. The whole experience and the confidence it had given me was amazing. It was such cool fun being out in the fresh air and exploring the scenery The atmosphere was awesome the guides were awesome and horses were fantastic. (good natured and relaxed). I absolutely loved it and wanted to spend more time there. I would definitely do it again. Donna
