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

Thank you for an amazing ride! We did the Clearview Winery Ride and despite the high winds had a great time. We have horses ourselves and were amazed at how well-behaved the horses were in the high winds. The weather didn't detract from the amazing views and it was fantastic to have such a wide variety on one trek -... More

My family members enjoyed the experience from catching the horses, putting saddlery on (under supervision), the relaxing country/beach ride, riding in the waves, taking saddlery off, feeding horses, and returning them to their paddock. There was no rushing and the horses are much loved by their owner. I would recommend this as a complete horsey experience.

Absolutely amazing ride out to cape kidnappers in the evening, we were so lucky to get stunning weather as well. Dzidra is a great host, she's very entertaining and very attentive. We felt very at home riding with her and her beautiful horses, we were given a quick lesson on horsemanship and you really felt a difference in the horse,... More

No words or not enough words to describe this amazing experience, but I am going to try. We went on a Cape Kidnappers Trek and ..............wow, mind blowingly, beautiful, stunning, breath taking, once in a life time experience. Everything, absolutely everything seemed to be perfect, the horses, the view, the weather and of course the lovely host Dzidra. Her very... More

My partner and I did the river ride that was advertised as a 2.5 hour trek on the flier we received from the info centre, however the total riding time was only about 1.5 hours, an hour less than I had paid for. Upon checking the website it was stated to be around 2 hours, still less than I had... More

Thank you for your review. Whenever we take a trek, we ALWAYS ride to the ability of the least experience person, and your partner was a Beginner. In the past, I have allowed the experienced rider to keep their horse back, and then trot/canter to catch up, but EVERY TIME something has gone wrong and the beginner felt uncomfortable as... More
