A great time for both a beginner an experienced rider with small groups. Guides were great, very helpful with lots of information about the area too. Great chance to ride along a stretch of the beach at end of ride. What a great way to end the day.!

I have been on many horse treks throughout NZ, trekking in the Punakaiki valley was the best experience I have had.
The horses are great, the scenery is beautiful, the guides are awesome and if you are experienced they will cater for the fast paced thrill seekers.
I loved the whole ride, especially the (optional for experienced riders) canters and gallop along the beach.
Fantastic hospitality and worth every cent.

This trek took us along a beach, across a river, through a farm and into some wonderful rainforest. It was a good value trip with all these different types of scenery. The staff were very helpful, calm and knew their horses well. Horses were well cared for and seemed interested in getting out with you. I really liked this horse trip.

The horses are well trained and well kept. The guide was very helpful, as we had little prior experience riding. However we felt very confident and taken care for, and the ride up the riverbeds, and down to the beach was just amazing and mesmerizing. We took the ride in the morning, when the temperatures were optimal. However that could change with season, so please make your own considerations when booking.

We were in our honeymoon, and we keep this experience as one of the top three in New Zealand.
