Riding along the beach after the June 3rd storm

Well winter is finally here but this does mean that we are heading towards Spring!

To help you ease into winter mode we are offering our WEEKDAY 10am and 12 noon 1 hour beach horse rides at the special rate of $65 per person instead of the usual $80!

This offer is valid for weekdays only from Tuesday June 5th to Friday June 29th 2018. To book this offer call us on 09 422 6275 or email us at pakirihorse@xtra.co.nz and quote JUNE 1 HOUR RIDE OFFER

Through the winter months we can usually take last minute bookings on our 1 hour, 2 hour and the morning Half Day rides so if you have a sudden urge to enjoy some breathtakingly stunning scenery from the back of a horse, do call us!

We get many many great testimonials from our guests and this lovely one was sent to us a few days ago:

Amazing time out today for a couple of hours. Jamie is a fantastic guide and it felt much more like a couple of friends out for a ride, than a paid trek. I haven’t laughed so hard for ages.

The horses are in great condition and Moony who I rode has a great personality.

Would come back again in a heartbeat and for anyone else reading reviews who is dubious about taking a paid trek after having your own horses, don’t be, do it, you won’t be disappointed!

We always say that there are many ways to get wet whilst with us at Pakiri Beach and this little video clip shows one of them! This was an experienced ride on her way back from a 2 hour ride. The river was higher than usual after a storm and we promise you that the rider consented to getting this wet...! The horses, Lucy and Moonie, have done this many times before so were not at all worried.


May 2018 Newsletter

And suddenly it is May! The shorter days are becoming more noticeable and our horses are growing their winter coats in readiness for the cooler months ahead.

The good news though, is that we offer all our riding options throughout the year (excepting the Warrior Trail & Coast to Coast multi-day rides) and autumn and winter often provide some of the most memorable rides with incredible photo opportunities along the way.

As we are quieter at this time of year it is usually possible to book on the day by calling us on 09 422 6275 so if you get up in the morning and fancy a stunning beach horse ride to exercise the body and de-stress the mind, we can help!

Our lucky 2pm ride the other day saw a pod of about 10 dolphins whilst riding along the dunes which just helped to remind us as to how privileged we are to have this little slice of paradise so close to Auckland city.

MAY RIDE OFFER during May we are offering our 2 hour beach horse ride at the discounted price of $120 (usual price is $160). This ride goes out at 10am and 2pm every day and is suitable for riders who are competent in rising trot and canter & who are under 100kgs. Please call us on 09 422 6275 to book or for more information.

MOTHERS DAY: we are offering a special Mothers Day ride on Sunday May 13th commencing at 12 noon.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page as we will be holding a fundraising Pink Ribbon beach horse ride later in May to help raise funds for cancer research.

Don't forget, we also cater for experienced riders! We use different horses on our longer rides (from 2 hours to multi-day rides) who are fit and forward going and just ideal for those with good current or previous riding experience. Our horses and guide love going on our longer rides so do come and join them when you can!
