Horse Riding on Great Barrier Island

Over the last few years many people have enjoyed the experience offered by Chrissy of GBI Adventure Horse Treks. Childrens groups, beginners, and experienced riders alike have all benefited from her advice, cheerful nature and well behaved mounts. At present she is taking time to reassess her directions, so when we know what she’s planning we’ll let you know. Watch this space!
