Explore the beaches and forests of the beautiful Northland coast with a horse trek from Pariki Horse Riding.
There is no feeling quite like riding a horse across an empty, sandy beach, and the people at Pariki Horse Riding know it. Just an hour and a half from the bustle of Auckland, Pariki offers relaxing rides along the coastal, hilly terrain of southern Northland.
Based out of a working farm, Pariki is a family-owned operation run by a family with strong ties to the land--be sure to ask about the history and Maori legends of the surrounding area. Living on a working farm means that your hosts also have years of experience with horses, and know how to make horse-riding adventure enjoyable for you and the animal.
A private, 15-kilometre stretch of Pakiri beach is the setting for most Pariki rides. Trails also go through native bush, forests and farmland. Rides can be customised to each group, lasting anywhere between an hour and a full day.
