Ocean Beach Horse Treks and Horse Riding Adventures in Kawhia

Ocean Beach Horse Treks and Horse Riding Adventures invite you on some of the best equestrian adventure rides available in New Zealand.

The Eco Paradise of New Zealand

Naumai, haere mai ki West coast of the North Island of Aotearoa. This is a land steeped in rich Maori history and a horse riding paradise off the beaten tourist track in NZ.

This historical land is the final resting place of the great Tainui and Aotea waka's...The famous migratory canoe's.

These isolated settlements of Kawhia, Taharoa, Marokopa, Aotea and Raglan, are located on the rugged coastal regions of Waikato and King Country.

This is awesome pony and horse riding country at its best, traversing miles upon miles of isolated ocean beaches and ancient Maori warrior trails that take riders across stunningly scenic, coastal, forestry and farm trails.
