Our ship HMAS WARRAMUNGA had the pleasure of experiencing a great day of horse riding, which was enjoyed immensely by some of the Officers and crew and was followed up by a very nice home made lunch and Archery and other Weapons. Thanks to Briar and the team.

Awesome time. Briar took time to make our little girl feel comfortable( and me) as we are very un- horse- savvy! Was definately worth it- we had a buzz going for the whole day :)

Went to Briar's when I was on holiday and it was excellent I really liked the horses and the ride with nice views. I love horses and it was great to be able to include a horsey experience in my holiday. :)

Came back to Briar's for my third trek inside 12 months - just can't beat the experience - 3 hours of gorgeous New Zealand forest, riverbanks and farmland with views out to the Bay of Plenty. Fantastic horses (especially Gorgeous - she really is!) and guides well suited to my ability, will definitely be back and bringing my friends!! Thanks to Briar and the Team

My two daughters are horse mad and we were very lucky to come across Briar and the absolutely gorgeous setting at O'Hara's farm. My girls were immediately under expert hands from both Briar and Nat, helping to catch the horses, tack them and then ride. We visited three times in two weeks and this has definitely been a highlight of their time in NZ. I recommend this for anyone wanting to get in the saddle in NZ.
