Our world-famous 3 hour (half day) extreme horse adventure with an edge will take your breath away. The bush, the birds, the streams, the environment at Ruapuke, the salt, the sun, the wind, the Ocean (and yes - you DO get to go in it!) the awesome guides and of course - the horses!
This ride has it all, and is the perfect length of time for most people, riders or not. You just need to be keen and a little adventurous, we will look after you. Novice riders are very welcome, Wayne always makes sure he matches you with the perfect horse. If you're a more experienced rider, we will cater for you too with a more challenging ride. All our horses are beautiful, intelligent and colourful!
This new and exciting addition to Wildcoast has all the ingredients of the real deal - the same great horses, same great guides and same great environment; just a little shorter.

At Ruapuke, we get the last of the sun!
