“Great experience for beginners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

We found boutique horse trekking during our trip around New Zealand. Neither of us had ridden before but Dzidra (the owner) put us at ease as we mounted the horses and she explain how to control the horses and guide them to where we wanted to go. It was a great experience riding along the beach in Hawkes Bay although we did discover the horses aren't very keen on the breaking waves. I would happily recommend boutique horse trekking to others visiting the area as a well worth experience.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

It must be everyone's dream to ride in the landscape of Hawkes Bay! Just came back from the Cape Kidnappers ride to the Gannet colony and it was absolutely outstanding! The dramatic hills, the roaring sea... I can not recommend this enough. The horses are extremely well handled and looked after and I love the natural way of horse riding with a rope halter instead if using a bit. Unforgettable experience!

“Learn about natural horsemanship...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

I really had a great time riding at Boutique Horsetreks with Dzidra. Although it was extremely wet so we only had a quick trot, it was fun learning about natural horsemanship and exploring the beautiful surrounds of the beach and farmland. Dzidra was a great host who allowed us a bit of freedom not like normal trail rides with horses following nose to tail!!
Would definitely recommend this to all.

“First time riders”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

My husband and I went on the magical beach ride with Dzidra and had a wonderful time. It was our first time riding a horse and as beginners we found the experience amazing. We loved the fact the horses had no bit in the mouth and had been trained using natural horsemanship methods. We would definitely recommend this experience to visitors to Hawke's Bay!
