This place is based in the village of Clive which is halfway between Napier and Hastings. Maybe contact them to see what they can do for you?

Marquin59 - you asked for a referral ; you didn't say what your budget was. What you term "ridiculously expensive .... crazy prices, unaffordable" to others may well be fair pricing.

Yes you may be right expatkiwiwairoa ^..........these prices may well be fair for those families on $300,00 annually per year !

But for the struggling working class family wanting to treat their child to a horse ride to remember on their NZ holiday....the above companies prices are ridiculous , crazy & are completely unafforable.... for us

There are other activities that may be more within your budget whilst visiting Hawkes Bay that will be memorable as a treat for your child.

http://www.gannets.com/pages/booking.html - yes the website does say they are closed for the season however they may be operating when you are planning to visit NZ?

A visit to Silky Oaks Chocolate factory/museum - they also have a café onsite which serves yummy made with love food from local produce

Famers Market on Sunday morning - this is in Hastings; there is a smaller version in Napier on Saturday mornings

Google Hawkes Bay Tourism for more ideas and most websites will have their prices listed.
