My friend and I booked the overnight ride. When we arrived everything was ready, the people were very welcoming and friendly. They gave us our helmets and oilskins and they drove us to the starting point of the trek. The horses were ready, the guides put the rest of the gear on and helped us onto our horses. My horses...

I felt at ease riding at Lazy H horse treks because the guides were very concerned about their customer's safety. The owners are helpful and very, very nice people :D And that reflected in their horses too! Such well behaved horses! Plus, the views during the ride were spectacular!

They treat there horses with natural horsemanship, the scenery is breath taking and even people with few riding eperiences can come on tour. The Guides... More

We rode here a couple of times during our trip and had the most incredible experience each time. The family and guides were so welcoming and knowledgeable, one of the riders in our group was a beginner and they were extremely accommodating making them feel confident from day 1. All of the horses were strong, healthy and loved doing their... More

We chose this place because we wanted to ride in that section of NZ. We picked the overnight trip. The horses were full of energy but the guide insisted we stay at a walk. The hut was a joke. The "beds" were old broken down, lumpy and dirty. My husband slept on the couch which was not too great either.... More
