“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”

Do you believe in the power of your dreams?

Are you busy trying to manifest the incredible magic that you hold inside?

Do you hear people say, “get your head out of the clouds, we need common sense not pipe dreams”?

Are you holding on, resolutely believing in the power of magic and manifestation of you beautiful dreams?

Our wee boutique business started just like that, “a pipe dream” when we told people about our vision they would laugh and say,

“good luck with that”

That was 16 years ago

As we look back we are so pleased that we did not listen to the negative.

We chose instead to focus on the positive forces of creativity the universe brings when you set out to truly create.

Meet our tiny team with a big dream; set your wild soul free to explore the breathtaking isolated wilderness, South Island NZ on horseback.

Breathe Life into your dreams every day for they are the beauty that shapes your tomorrows

John Wall

Adventurer, Horseman

John is a fifth generation horseman.

School was about showing up and dreaming about the end of the day when he could go ride his pony.

He has been lucky enough to have some awesome horsemen mentors in his life.

His Dad, Charlie Wall always had a pony in the paddock. He passed on his passion for horses and their breeding.

Russell Olds, an old-fashioned horseman taught his so much about carriage horses.

Hamish Wall, Johns Son, headed to Canada to learn from so many incredible horsemen over a two-year period. On his return he brought back so many “natural horsemanship” techniques.

Angie Leckey

Adventurer, Dreamer, Organizer, Cook, Packer, Driver

Angie, I didn’t have a good start with horses as a kid when my Dad bought an old canal horse that hated kids.

Matthew terrified all of the kids in our family along with the men who worked on the River Weaver at Dutton Locks where I grew up.

Fast forward 35 years and I met John 17 years ago now. He taught me how a true relationship with horses should be.

Fun, heart based and with mutual respect.

Now we have 60 horses who are our children and form the basis of our adventure business.

I’ve named each one as they were born and love them all equally… well maybe I do have a few favorite’s……

Check out my blogs and pod casts for some tales of the trails and share some giggles.
