South Kaipara - New Zealand

Riding Holiday

5 star rating   10 November 2019

Kirsi who has been on 2 In The Saddle rides. The most hospitable stay in family farm and riding in really beautiful area including nice canters in a long, long beach | Rod, Bev and their daughter Georgie took really good care of us. Your rarely meet such a hospitality what we met in their farm. I feel like we got three really good friends from the other side of globe.

Bev's breakfasts and dinners were brilliant and we also got good picnick lunch every day.

We rode in really different kind of beautiful areas everyday with Rod and Georgie and they gave us a lot of information of the area. Horses were safe and still forward going.

Bev's cooking was brilliant - a good and everyday different kind of breakfast, lovely picnick lunch, after ride nibbles and dinners with incredible desserts. Also a good variety of New Zealand vines. There is nothing more that a rider can expect.
