"Just the right place for people with a little more experience with horses and riding" Beach trails, off road trails, vaulting and cart rides with well trained horses. from 2 hours to overnighters all over Golden Bay. Farm stay for horses and rider. Hack'n Stay is dedicated to those who want to enjoy the simple things in life. Enjoy time with one of our horses or bring your own hack. Take a sulky ride along the beach. Ride bare back along the golden sands. Swim with the horses on many crystal clear waters or try vaulting. Hacktivities off the beaten track.

A warm, welcoming B&B featuring horseback riding and lessons, great extras like shared desserts and the happiest group of woofers (young people who work for food/lodging) I have seen as they too were given riding instruction by Barbel, the owner and chief equestrian. The rooms...More

We had an awesome stay at Bärbels farm. Absolute lovely spot at the Golden Bay. We did a 2,5h horseride to the beach. The horses were completely relaxed. They didn't run after each other. Every horserider was able to control its horses speed and way....More

We are experienced riders and love to have canter at the beach. Bärbels horses are very gentle and soft. Unfortunately we almost only walked. The 2 hours trek consisted of 30 min introduction how to ride the horses and 1.5h walk to and the awesome...More
