Riding Lessons

Here at Beachbrook we offer you riding lessons based on loads of fun and specialise in building your confidence!! I am an ex Pony Club instructor and have also spent several years of my life as a nanny. Therefore you can be sure that not only is your instructor capable, but is also very aware of the safety and care involved in working with your child. As your childs caregiver you can choose to stay, make a cup of coffee and watch the lesson or you can head out for a spot of shopping at the outlet stores and make the most of your free time knowing your child is having great fun at Beachbrook.

I also offer lessons for adults on a VERY quiet and very well schooled clydesdale gelding (level 2 dressage, Training level eventing and schooling at 1.20 show jumping) whom is just PERFECT for very nervous riders.

We have a large fenced all weather sand arena dedicated to lessons with a full set of showjumps. There is no charge at all if your child would just like to come and pat and brush the ponies first before building their confidence.

Beach Treks

Otaki beach is one of the most incredible beaches to ride down as the sun is setting on a summers evening. I have ridden on the these beaches for 25 years and the sunsets never fail to take my breath away. Our ponies are all incredibly quiet and are very used to walking over the sand and through the water.

Birthday Parties

Pony riding for your childs b'day is a great activity the kids will talk about for years to come! You can use our indoor barn as a party location, have a bar-b-q, go for quad bike/trailer rides over the farm to see the new calves and feed the lambs (seasonal).

Party booking times available are 10am-12, 12.30pm-2.30pm, 3pm-5pm. We are open 7 days a week all year round.

We charge $250.00 for the two hours you are here and that includes visiting all the other animals on the farm. This price is for up to 12 children, each child over and above is an additional $20.00 per child. For those children that don't wish to participate in the pony riding we also have a playground out the back including a huge sandpit.


Once you have booked your party time & date, we require a $60.00 deposit to secure your time, we will then send you your booking confirmation.

If you are unable to travel to us we can bring the ponies to you.

Testimonial:  Thank you for putting on such a fantastic birthday party for our group of girls today! They all had a brilliant time and are still on a high from their experiences. The horses, the puppies, piglets, lambs and the hospitality was outstanding. Congratulations to you both. 


If you don't want to have the full b'day party experience you can purchase a voucher for a B'day lesson as a gift that any child would just love!  

Livery

We have someone on site 24 hours a day to ensure your horse is attended to rain hail or shine. We can change covers, feed up to 3 x daily, catch for the farrier and attend vet visits when you can't.
Livery takes all the stress out of horse ownership and you are left with nothing but the pleasure of grooming and riding. We can even exercise your horse for you if you would like your mount kept fit for the competition season.

Lease a Pony

So your child wants to get a pony but there is debate about if they will stick to it. Rather than forking out a truck load of money for gear and pony you can lease one of ours on a weekly basis. That way if they decide that owning a pony really isn't their thing there is no cost and no hassle to you the parent of selling on the pony and the gear, possibly at a loss.

Starting Young Horses

There is not alot more rewarding than starting young horses and ponies. Lately I have found starting the young ones even more rewarding than competing so have spent alot of my time at home with the young ones. A successful and confident start to any horses life is created by a confident trainer.

When your horse comes here they will leave confident on the road and beaches as well as very well mannered on the ground.

Clipping

We offer clipping services and I am experienced with belly clips and trace clips right through to full clips.

Other Services

We are set up with stables inside an indoor barn with a very wide breezeway. We are also located only 1.5km from the most fantastic veterinary clinic specialising in equine care. They are set up with a crush and a surgical area for our equine friends. Often sick horses come from as far as Wellington to have procedures done and you may need somewhere to overnight your horse. Being that our location is so close to both the Veterinary Clinic and beach, Beachbrook is an ideal location for your horse to recouperate.

I can also offer transport for your horse to shows, vet, farrier etc.
