Animal experience hosted by Liz

2 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 2 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Our aim is to have you positively connecting with our horses. Depending on your animal confidence and physical ability, you will be shown first how to catch, groom, saddle and mount the horse and then be given the opportunity to do it yourself. Our horses are chosen for their patience and good natures, so they are a pleasure to work with.

Meet your host, Liz

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
Having enjoyed living and working close to nature and horses we now give Visitors to The Central Plateau of New Zealand , the opportunity to experience the magic of horses in a supportive environment. I have worked for 30 years in the education field and with horses - guiding group trekking, breeding and starting horses for the saddle and to be ridden. Our approach is now more towards the therapeutic side of our interests and sharing this in a personal way, one on one or one to two persons.
