We had a 2 hour horse trek as part of out girls weekend in Napier. The three of us are experienced riders with some experience in natural horsemanship and it was lovely to ride trekking horses without a bit. The horses were in good condition, well mannered, well trained and good to ride. The saddles were comfortable and in good... More

My seven year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our ride with Dzidra and her lovely horses. The horses appeared very well cared for and happy. Locally there is a new pipeline being built which changed our route to include a little part on a quiet road so no big deal, but sounds like once it's built there is more... More

Although I'm an experienced rider, I've never ridden in this style before so was a really interesting experience. Had a great ride on Moana (not sure about spelling!) thank you Dzidra

A brilliant day trekking out to Clearview winery complete with riding through the river which the horses clearly loved as much as we did. The first time I've ridden with a hackamore bridle and seen natural horsemanship put into practice- a really fascinating experience. It's impossible not to trust the horse you ride as they are so well trained, perfect... More

Wonderful ride through the Tukituki river on quality horses. Lovely to ride in a rope bridle for the first time - also Dzidra takes all the photos and sends them to you afterwards so you don't have to faff with a camera and can just enjoy the ride! thank you Dzidra

I did a more advanced ride on the horse Bowie, he was so well behaved.We rode along the sea front and in the river, the whole experience was amazing! The horses and the company were lovely.

Loved the ride we did. Bowie really has come a long way and that ride will go down in history - with the amazing river crossing and wild waves. Dzidra More

I rode here in late January and had a really good time. I am an experienced rider and they put me on a horse called Moana, who had a lovely temperament. I was the only paying rider, with two staff members, who were friendly. I had specifically requested that I be able to do some cantering and they made an... More

Thanks for your review. While you did not appreciate that the horses were ready to go at 2pm, we have a new approach which is to wait for the guest so that the guest can catch the horse, brush it, saddle it, and then do the ride, so that there can be a longer bonding time to the horse. It... More

We did the Clearview Winery ride, and it was absolutely spectacular. Both of us had ridden before, but our lovely host Dzidra had us playing Simon Says, riding backwards, riding side-saddle and with no hands. We felt completely confident and safe at all times. Even when my horse naughty Nugget took off on a canter several times as we were... More

We had a real privilege to ride right before sunset along the Clive beach. Our host Dzidra made this whole experience a flawless one. Beautiful and well trained horses, fantastic scenery. As sometimes words fail to describe moments like this there is no better way than to try it for yourself.

We had a fantastic experience- beautiful setting! This was my son's first ever horse riding experience and he has come away buzzing! Agnete was a great guide and made us all feel comfortable and even taught my son some wee tricks, which added to his confidence no end. Would strongly recommend this activity when visiting the bay.

Hi Carla! Thanks for a lovely ride with the 3 of you! I enjoyed your company along the whole trek, and I'm happy to hear that Jonty had a great experience! We will do some more tricks next time. Hope to see you back at Boutique Horsetreks one day! :) - Agnete More
