Our History

Muriwai Beach Horse Treks has been in operation since 2013 and quickly became one of Auckland’s most popular spots to ride horses.

Muriwai Beach Horse Treks has been rated by The New Zealand Herald as one of the Top Five best horse treks. We have treks to suit all abilities from beginners to experienced people, with horses and ponies to match each rider’s level.

We cater for many group sizes from small intimate ones to large corporate functions, team building etc. We provide NZ Safety approved helmets and high visibility vests for all riders.

All riders receive an instructional and safety brief on how to ride a horse at the beginning of the ride to make everyone feel safe, comfortable and relaxed during the ride.

We trek along the picturesque black sands of Muriwai Beach on New Zealand’s West coast and up through the enchanting forestry of Woodhill. In off-peak times we are located less than 40 minutes northwest of the Auckland CBD and just a short 15 minutes from the end of the North Western motorway.

Here at Muriwai Beach horse treks, as Auckland horse riding specialists we also offer lessons for beginner riders through to the more advanced riders on one of our star MBHT horses.

Bookings are essential and we provide both tourists and locals the best West Auckland horse rides. All our guides are mature, experienced and extremely capable in providing all customers with the best experience possible.

British website, Travel Essentials, one of the UK’s leading independent online travel essentials providers championed Muriwai Beach Horse Treks in their article on the Top 10 Happiest Cities in The World. When describing ‘what to do’ in the City of Sails they recommended discovering New Zealand’s scenic beauty by experiencing a trek with us. They described the horse adventure as“such a great way to experience the rugged West Coast”.

Horseback riding is certainly the best way to experience the exquisite and pristine beach that this part of New Zealand has to offer – and it’s loads of fun.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
