“Great Time”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our trek with Clair. She was a lovely, friendly girl who made it very special. The horses were well-behaved and not at all scary and the scenery from the top of the hill was breath-taking.

I had fun and my horse "Kev" (short for Kevlar) yawned when I finally got off.

“So Good We Came Back Twice!”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

I booked a ride for my 9 year old daughter and went along with her. The trek was one of the beste we've been on with varied scenery and a range of paths, tracks, open fields, etc. We could even pick wild cherries from the trees while we rode.
Back at the stables my daughter was allowed to help the stable girls and really felt like part of the team. So much so that when we got back to the motel she shared the experience with her sister and the following day I took them both out for a ride. Poor weather delayed our camping trip and we stayed in Hanmer a few extra days and the kids were all over me to take the riding again! We really had the best time - I'd recommend Hanmer Horses to riders (or would be riders) of any ability. They had a good selection of horses and the owner really made the effort to match up riders to ability.

“fantastic”
Reviewed 30 November 2011

We had a wonderful ride with Hanmer Horses with Melissa as our guide. The horses were gentle and it was a real pleasure riding in the hills among the sheep. The other farm animals--dogs, Maine Coon "Alaska" and pet lambs--were a delight to interact with and we were warmly welcomed and made to feel comfortable. A well-run establishment and highly recommended.
