Our family spent a magical day with Tasman Horse Rides last week that we totally loved. Fun and so many laughs had by all of us as we trotted and cantered over their wonderful farm - we have booked our return, thanks so much for a great day.’

This trek is not for the faint-hearted. It lasts approximately 5½ hours, so an experienced level of riding is required - for instance, riders should be able to trot and canter with ease. The ride initially covers the same farmland and forest as our Two Hour and Picnic Treks before heading onto the vast expanse of sand at Muriwai Beach, which will provide you with an uninterrupted riding experience. Energy snacks and drinks are provided.
