Horse Riding
More than 100 miles of roads and trails ideally suited for horse riding.

Poronui’s trails make their way through tree-covered hills and cross the gentle streams of the property. Enjoy great views of diverse landscapes, ranging from lush native forests, manuka scrub land to open grasslands while on your ride. Hear the song of native birds, see spectacular scenery and gain insight into the pioneering history of the land.

The Poronui team of horses are New Zealand station bred. They are chosen for their temperament, steady gait and sure footedness.  Kept fit and well-schooled in all disciplines, they ensure a fun ride for all. There is nothing more exhilarating than a gallop over the hills for the experienced rider!

Our professional guides come with extensive experience in schooling  young horses, ponies, competing and instructing. They know the property intimately, are passionate about the outdoors and have in-depth knowledge of New Zealand flora, fauna and local history.
