Time to plan your holiday fun!

Merry, Merry Christmas to you all!

At last wonderful summer sunshine... warm long beautiful days and the grass is growing and the horses are fat and glossy again!

It's time to get amongst it and plan your escapes.

The pohutukawas are flowering early too... a great indicator of a long fine summer!



Our wonderful 'escape' accommodation is filling up fast! Be in quick to secure your summer stay.

We have a couple of dates left so please call to check availability. Don't miss out!

To our special friends on our mailing list, we have a 10% discount off all rides with every stay longer than our 2 night minimum.


Riding Lessons

Our After School On Monday Riding Lessons have been going so well!

Our little girls are so confident now... all can rise to the trot and they have even cantered out on treks. We are so proud of them! It is very special to see them smiling widely and trying so hard and loving every minute!

Tiger Tims Cafe

This lovely shot of Tiger Tim and his son Louie dreaming up menus before opening the café for the day!

Just the best burgers...


Kids Camps

Don’t forget we have two camps in January a 5 day for girls of 11yrs to 15yrs and a 3 day for 9yr to 11yr old girls... possibly a 3 day boys camp too.

The 5 day is from 15th January to 19th January 2018 the 3 Day is from January 22nd. The others I have yet to set a date for.


The Awesome Warrior Trail

Our 5 Day Warrior Trail Rides are really special... they follow the ancient trail of the Maori ancestors who ran from the old Pa site to Te Arai and across to the Kaipara.

This is in the rohe or territory of the paramount chief Te Kiri.


Recent Highlights

We bought a new pony named Dolly; she's quite beautiful but proving to be a little naughty... too pretty to work she thinks... lots more riding for her!

Comings and goings

Jennie has come back from Sweden to help me and enjoy Pakiri for the summer again.

We all love her and she is welcome here any time. She is a lovely rider too.


Comings and goings

This is a shot of the new “Pakiri Limo”! The poor old one gave great service but we needed to replace her. Already the new landy has been busy cross country.
