Lovely ride for all riders

Lovely outing to see some local sites on excellent horses, suitable for all level riders. We had 3 experienced riders and 3 beginners and all enjoyed the morning immensely.

I've never done horse riding before but was made to feel so comfortable. Friendly staff. It is a must try experience. Loved my horse - Rogan and the path was beautiful. If your new to horse riding - be aware that your muscles will be sore later.

I have been for lots of treks at Taupo Horse Treks, and every trek has been great. All of the horses are well trained and friendly, and are good for a wide range of riding abilities.
