Get away from the mundane day to day rat race and come and relax, breath deep and LOVE being with your horse – do the things with him that you have dreamed of!

“I felt like I learned so much in every ride, every interaction, every dinner conversation and was able to put it all into practice during the holiday. The food was amazing, the setting stunning and the company even better. We were all so well taken care of.”

Imagine, imposing sand dunes, turquoise oceans, pink sand and did we mention - wild horses! This is the stuff that dreams are made of - we guarantee it!


We get you safe, confident and connected and then take you to the most beautiful place on earth to ride with us.

Take in the beauty of Henderson Bay with panoramic views from the top of the cliffs created from a 32-metre high Tsunami hitting landfall between 1450-1480 AD. See stunning sunsets, sunrises and view the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean at the same time.


Ride out to the West Coast through forestry, lakes, tussock grasses and over expansive sand dunes to view the wild horses in their natural habitat – all these views from between your horse's ears.
The majestic beauty of the scenery will take your breath away.



Amazing scenery and riding opportunities. I LOVED my riding my holiday. Great bunch of people, well looked after by Ken & Jane & their team It truly was a holiday, as I only needed to focus on my horse and myself. Highly Recommended!
Lyn Burke - Whangarei, New Zealand



The horse that I was given for the week was a fantastic little gem and the teachings of Jane and Ken were invaluable.  We saw the wild horses near Ninety Mile Beach, rounded up some cattle, cantered down the beach at sunset and rode through the bush.

Being able to immerse so fully in horses for a week with like-minded people was such a boost for the spirit.  I returned home feeling fresh and relaxed and can’t wait to do it again!”

On your sightseeing day, there is a vast number of activities that you can choose to do. Visit Cape Reinga, go fishing, soak in the rock pools, swim with your horse, gather shellfish, surf the dunes or just curl up and read a good book – it is totally up to you!


Don’t just dream about it!

Let us help you make it a reality, this year!


“Attending the ‘Heaven on Horseback Riding Holiday’ in March 2018 was one of those “Ahh” moments for me. Not only did I learn some great new techniques for handling and training horses effectively and safely, but I had an absolutely amazing time doing it!"

“The Riding Holiday is going to be something I remember for the rest of my life”.

"Hearing Ken hush us down as we popped out into this clearing to come across 41 horses all just grazing in the wild just left my heart pounding.

Seeing those wild horses felt like a combination of every story I ever read as a child and every dream I ever had mucking around with my first pony and it’s hard to believe it just happened!”
Ashra McAvinue - New Zealand



“To be able to see those wild horses and ride to them and watch them come back towards us was just so moving - really beautiful - a life-changing experience.”
Kristina Graham - Auckland, New Zealand


Come for a holiday in the stunning Far North of New Zealand and leave with great friends, a lifetime of memories and a happy soul.



Your Holiday of a lifetime starts at Retreat Ranch – Ken and Jane’s beautiful property in the stunning Bay of Islands where you will spend a couple of days riding out over the farm and through the wonderful native bush – it is a time to sharpen your skills, bond with your horse and prepare for the next phase – the Far North!


We travel up to Henderson Bay and stay in a 100 year old character Villa at Henderson Bay (on the East Coast) and this is where we are based for the next 4 days.


You will ride down the stunning Henderson Bay Beach with its pink sand and turquoise water and think you are in a tropical paradise.


Our “Wild Horse” adventure is a day out on the west coast on the famous 90 mile beach. This is a day of rugged beauty, majestic scenery and wild horses! We take you to the top of a sand dune where you can see the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea – AT THE SAME TIME!

Our sightseeing day is a day where you can choose do nothing or everything! Sit on the beach in the shade of a beautiful Pohutukawa tree or take a drive up to Cape Reinga, surf the giant sand dunes at Te Paki, swim at gorgeous Tapotupotu Bay, collect shellfish, go swimming with your horse….. the options are endless!
And you have the option of adding an extra 2 fun filled days onto your holiday! We know you won’t want to go home!
