Absolutely amazing ride out to cape kidnappers in the evening, we were so lucky to get stunning weather as well. Dzidra is a great host, she's very entertaining and very attentive. We felt very at home riding with her and her beautiful horses, we were given a quick lesson on horsemanship and you really felt a difference in the horse,... More

No words or not enough words to describe this amazing experience, but I am going to try. We went on a Cape Kidnappers Trek and ..............wow, mind blowingly, beautiful, stunning, breath taking, once in a life time experience. Everything, absolutely everything seemed to be perfect, the horses, the view, the weather and of course the lovely host Dzidra. Her very... More

My partner and I did the river ride that was advertised as a 2.5 hour trek on the flier we received from the info centre, however the total riding time was only about 1.5 hours, an hour less than I had paid for. Upon checking the website it was stated to be around 2 hours, still less than I had... More

Thank you for your review. Whenever we take a trek, we ALWAYS ride to the ability of the least experience person, and your partner was a Beginner. In the past, I have allowed the experienced rider to keep their horse back, and then trot/canter to catch up, but EVERY TIME something has gone wrong and the beginner felt uncomfortable as... More

Thanks! Great first experience on a horse - such a treat to take people who have never ridden and show them something different, riding without a bit and learning Natural Horsemanship techniques. More

My friend Dzidra is so fun to ride Horses with. She invited me along on one of her horsetreks! It was so cool, I've rode a few times but not an experienced rider at the least, and I must admit I was curious how I would manage. It was so easy & fun! She has 4 amazing beauties to ride-... More

My two children were keen to learn to ride, but they were upset by the expectation of many places that they use whips and spurs to help control the horses. They had heard about natural horsemanship and were wanting to learn to ride with someone who follows this philosophy and who loved and respected horses. Thankfully we found Dzidra. She... More

Thank you so much for that positive feedback. It means so much to me that my passion of training horses a different way and passing that knowledge on is so well received. I really enjoy teaching children natural horsemanship and I know the horses do as well. They are extra patient and kind with children. See you next week. Dzidra More

I had never been on a horse before this, and the I found the entire experience amazing. Dzidra and her horses made me feel so comfortable and safe. The horses are stunning and so well trained that it takes very little effort to ride them. The trek also let me see a track that I walk regularly in a whole... More

I booked my ride when staying at The Farm at Cape Kidnappers and would 100% recommend anyone staying in the area to do this. The horses are very well trained and would suit any ability of rider. I have a bit of experience and was able to canter which was great. The views on the ride were stunning and Dzidra... More
