Adventure in the Bay of Plenty
Briar's Seaside Ride Horse Trek
Enjoy horse back trekking beside the Pacific Ocean and over rolling green farmland with breath taking views. Guide your well trained horse along a sweeping sandy beach and breath in the fresh salty air. On clear days you can see the whole Bay of Plenty from Coromandel to East Cape.
Briar's horses are quiet, trustworthy, well fed, and friendly. Experienced riders can enjoy a canter or gallop so long as the group is of the same level. Small groups are a speciality. Along the way you'll see native coastal birds and other ecological treasures, even the odd seal can be seen from time to time.
Historical sites, farm animals and market gardening are some of the other interesting things we ride through. Helmets are provided but you will need to wear long trousers and closed footwear.
