Who we Are

Horse Trek’n has operated horseback treks in the Bay of Islands for over 10 years, and is currently owned by Alex Edwards & partner Lizzy who now also live in the Bay area. Supported by the experience of manager Emma, and our trusty, well trained and friendly team of horses – we’re here to share with you our lifetime of equestrian experience and ensure you have a great time.

Our Home

Horse Trek’n is just a short 5 minute drive outside of Paihia, in the Bay of Islands in the stunning Northland of New Zealand. We are centrally located between Russell, Kerikeri and Kawakawa. Our region is arguably one of the most culturally significant and historic areas of New Zealand, with both the Waitangi Treaty Grounds – where the Tiriti o Waitangi was signed in 1840 between the North Island Maori Chiefs and the British Crown – and Russell, which was the first permanent European settlement in New Zealand.

With good weather nearly all year around – the Bay of Islands should be a must stop location for any keen travelers itinerary.

Our Mission

Our mission is to showcase the natural beauty of New Zealand – it’s taonga – in its natural state. We want to share with you our passion for the conservation of native species – in particular the protection of the kiwi and other native birds in our area, and help educate people on the importance of conservation and the history of our local area.


Our Rides

We are proud of our commitment to provide the best quality ride and trekking experience for all the family, from beginners through to advanced horse riders. We have a current team of 11 well trained trekking horses, each with their own unique personality. We treat our horses as our best friends and as a result they reward us and our visitors with a great experiences each and every day. We always ensure there is 1 guide to each of our 5 clients – with a maximum group size of 10 for everyone’s comfort and safety, though we can also arrange private rides on request.
