Lessons and treks are supervised with an assistant accompanying each pony and horse. Children and adults , new to horse riding, receive basic instruction in our arena. They may then like to try a short trek on undulating terrain. For riders who have had some experience our hilltop, three-quarter hour, trek offers stunning views over the Te Horo district with views of the sea and Kapiti Island. Our farm also offers guests an opportunity to visit our peacocks, pet sheep, Flossie, and feed the two pet cows. We have many horses grazing on the property so guests can visit, pat and photograph them but are encouraged not to enter paddocks with the stock. As the farm was previously a dairy farm some farm fencing may be electric, if touched.
