My mother and I had a wonderful ride on the beach of Maharau. Madison and Sarah are super friendly and made sure we all felt safe. but the better highlight was of course the horses. they are so well educated, so nice and you feel totally comfortable with them as a beginner and as an advanced as well. Thanks to Sara and Madison for this beautiful experience! (Rebekah from Germany)

My mum and me had a lovely evening beach ride during our vacation in Nelson. When we arrived, we got a thorough introduction of how to control our horses, perfect for all kinds of levels. They also had helmets and chaps there for us to use. The horses are very well looked after. We had lovely guides, Lena and Sarah, who knew the horses and their characters very well. They made us feel safe and we even got to canter, which was really fun and a great experience. The horses were easy to handle, and they responded well to us and if we needed it, the guides were always there to help too. There were two other people and the guides, so the group wasn’t too big. It was a really magical, mystical ride through the beach in the evening and we all enjoyed it. We would love to come back and would recommend this beach trek to anyone. A big thank you to our beloved horses, Donnie and Jim, and of course to our awesome guides. (Stephanie from Wellington)

It was my first time horse riding and I really enjoyed it. Lena made me feel very safe and comfortable and she took great pics too! Thank you 🙂 (Laura from UK)

An allround great experience. Lena gave us a thorough grounding in how to manage and ride a horse and what to do in an emergency before introducing each to their horse and its character. Landscape and beach were beautiful and the price is very reasonable. Very happy with this experience! (Mary)
