We provide a variety of trek options along one of New Zealand’s most beautiful west coast beaches, and your experience may include (where practical) gently rolling grasslands and the excitement of ocean riding.
Our horses are very safe and suitable for all ages and riding abilities, allowing you to enjoy the stunning scenery accompanied by our friendly and experienced guides!

BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL
Due to the nature of our horses that we have available, we have a WEIGHT LIMIT of 95kg
A minimum of $20 deposit per rider (or $50 per booking) is required to secure your booking unless otherwise negotiated.
Please advise of any medical conditions.
Bring the kids for a fun time with the Ponies - and often featuring our mini horses Peter Paint and Benji Button!
$90 per person, minimum booking of 2 people.
Meet us at Ahipara Horse Treks, and help lead the horses and ponies to the beach.
Run and play along the beach with them until we get to our destination - about a 15min walk.
Bring a picnic and bring your togs. Here, the kids can tail surf on the ponies and play with them in the water - the horses love this especially in the heat of summer!
Last summer was a scorcher and this one isn't any different!
Book your spot for 2023 summer now as this popular ride really is the best time to come and enjoy a 90 minute beach ride with us and some spectacular colours!
In the evenings the heat isn’t so bad and the colours of the sunset over the Tasman Sea are amazing! It makes for some amazing photos to remember your experience with!
$150 per rider
BYO HORSE TREKS
$$ - Price varies
We can organise 2-3 day rides for experienced horse riders only, where you can enjoy the fabulous views and experiences in the Far North from the comfort of your own horse!
If you have a group interested, feel free to message us to arrange your own dates!
- we occasionally have horses available for hire if required.
What better way to make your special day that extra bit special than to ride down the aisle on a Unicorn!
