If you like horses this is a 'must do'. The scenery is spectacular and the staff are fantastic. My children (11) and I did the 1&1/2 hr ride and totally loved it. Even my son, who's been a reluctant rider in the past, rated it with his top 3 NZ things so far (along with luge ride and Hobbiton)- impressed!... 更多
The trek was good, but I found the horses to be uneasy and don't follow instructions half the time. These are animals after all and they have a mind of their own! The staff were nice
Horses were well matched for the riders and were happy and well cared for. Highly recommended. Beautiful scenery with views of Lake Okareka, Tarawera and Okataina and also of Mr Tarawera
The staff are incredibly friendly and chatty. They are patient with riders with limited experience and able to offer constructive advice, but can cater for more experienced riders in the same group too. Stunning scenery over the lakes and Tarawera - definitely the place to ride in Rotorua!
If you wanna do an trip with cool horses and staff + amazing landscapes for an good price? Go to Longfords farm - not listed in Lonely Planet Guide, I got the tipp from an ROTORUA Local.
Stunning. Lucy coped with a mixed ability group with aplomb, care and skill. We were dressed sensibly by her for the elements and experienced a marvellous two hour trek with Jenny and a lovely German girl. Despite the rain my daughters had a fantastic ride with some cross country canters thrown in - my husband even trotted properly !! Lucy... 更多
Our daughter had the most fantastic experience, despite - or perhaps because of - the rain. For anyone who loves horses or is interested in trying out horse riding/trekking, we can highly recommend heading to Lake Okareka. Lucy and her riding helpers were very friendly, and helpful, and their love of horses is evident. We can't express enough just how... 更多
Awesome family activity. The staff are really friendly and great with the kids, our youngest was 4 years old and had her own horse to ride (being lead) and had a blast. Breathtaking views. Great value for money. We were all pretty much beginner riders, but all the horses were calm natured which put us all at ease. We are... 更多
My mom and I came to this place by word of mouth and were blown away. The staff were so friendly. famiy owned true New Zealand experience. My mom and I went on a 1.5 hour ride with just us 2 and 2 guides. The views and landscape were breathtaking. I am a horse owner so I am not easily... 更多
I went in April 2014, it took me 13 months to write this!! Lovely ride up to the view point to see across the Lake Okareka. My Horse Don was lovely and behaved well, for a rider that was a bit rusty. Great experience if you have the chance. Also great price for the ride as well, as they can... 更多
From the moment we arrived the team was ready to provide us a most memorable experience. The landscape and views were astounding. Beautiful vistas of the surrounding trees, rolling hills and breathtaking lakes. Ascending to the top of the hills brought new views around every corner. Couple of views of the resident hawk, geese in the lake and numbers of... 更多
