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. 

Lessons are not just for the kids! All our horses are VERY quiet and very well schooled (level 2 dressage, Training level eventing and schooling at 1.20 show jumping) whom are just PERFECT for very nervous adult riders as well.

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.

Our standard treks are an hour long but can be longer by arrangement. You have a choice of booking a private trek for just yourselves and one of our guides, or if you are wanting a group experience you an opt for that too. Trek bookings are taken 7 days a week, as long as the weather is nice we can take you out at anytime that suits you provding we have the horses available.

Important - Please note: All treks are run with at least one of our trekking guides either on foot walking with you or also on horseback depending on the experience levels of everyone riding. The pace you are able to go on your trek is at the discretion of your guide based on your riding ability and the calmness of your horse on the day. Safety is our priority. 100 kilo weight limit.

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, see the new calves and feed the lambs (seasonal). 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.

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 may be able to 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 or trek as a gift that any child would just love!  


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 the money up front 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.

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.
