Auckland Horse Riding
Get out into the countryside and go Horseriding in Auckland. There are beautiful green spaces in and around the city limits, most with amazing views of the metropolis. Further out, try riding through a scenic reserve, or along the beach.
Auckland Horseriding is one of the most relaxing ways to enjoy life in New Zealand's largest city. You can ride through parks, reserves, beaches and farms, and let the fast pace of city life just disappear behind you. Places like Warkworth (north of Auckland) and the Clevedon Valley (south east) have several riding stables, which offer trekking for beginners and experienced riders. Canter along the stunning Pohutukawa Coast, or go for a full gallop across Pakiri Beach (north, near Leigh). You'll also find plenty of farm riding out near Helensville (west) and around the beautiful Waitakere Ranges scenic park. Close to the city, look around Ardmore and Manurewa, for some cross country action.
