Welcome to

Whangarei City Riding Centre


We offer our riders a very special experience with well-schooled, well loved, happy horses.

Whether you are new to riding or if you are looking to develop your skills, we are here to help. We encourage our riders to discover why sitting on top of their horse gives them a much better view of the world, and a sense of being at one with the horse.


Our horses are ridden bit-less and we use comfy saddles to make the ride a pleasant one for both the horse and rider, encouraging a great bond to be formed. There is more to horses than riding and we offer time for grooming and horse care as part of the horse experience. We have riders of all ages, small ponies are available for the littlies in lessons.

Our group lessons are available to children and adults of all ages and abilities.
