About this property
Wildcoast Horse Adventures are an awesome 2 ½-3hr ride which takes you into the hills, down ridges, across rocky bottom streams, through beautiful native bush then down along the stunning Ruapuke Beach, and if you’re keen you get to have a canter too!
Our horses are wonderful; we have a horse to suit your level of riding, from complete novice to the expert. Come and enjoy the dramatic landscape of Ruapuke. We have 2 studio style eco cabins set amongst our 120 acre farm surrounded by bush, birds and streams with beautiful ocean views. They are proudly run on alternative power with fresh spring water to drink and have a soak in your bath with a view. Both cabins are self-contained with linen and towels provided. Wildcoast is locally owned and family operated.
Raglan Chronicle Review: “Wayne had expertly chosen horses to suit our ability and within minutes had given us all the information we needed to handle our horses, giving confidence to those of us who hadn’t ridden for years as well as those who had never ridden before. Our small party was soon on its way up the hillside.
Experiencing this landscape from horseback is truly brilliant, fun and exciting. Riding through bush, across fields, rocky streams and steep sloping dunes, horses have a surprising ability to safely transport you across all kinds of terrain, and you quickly begin to put your trust in their sure footing and strength.
Ending up down at the waters edge at Ruapuke Beach, we rode the horses into the water where they enjoyed getting sprayed by the waves. A good canter along the long black sand beach was an exhilarating way to end the trek and head us back in the direction of the farm.
Wildcoast really does provide everything you need to completely unwind, relax and recharge. You will leave feeling uplifted, energised, and already thinking of an excuse to come back for more!”

Forget the best glamping experience around, The Round Tent is the best accommodation around the Auckland region. Hands down. Loads of room for two they even have bunk beds for little ones but if you can get them baby sat instead I would thoroughly recommend going that way instead.
