There are many Smith Roads in New Zealand. Do NOT put in 37 Smith Road, Hamilton because it will take you to the WRONG place. It's in the middle of Frankton in Hamilton, there are no horses there and the owner is getting grumpy.

Finding the horse riding

After turning into Smith Road, drive for 700 meters and follow the trekking signs. The road takes a few turns and ends up at an arena with a car park and toilet block. Don't go to the accommodation, we don't keep the horses there!


There is no public transport or pick-up service. The nearest bus stop is about 10 kilometres away at Whatawhata. A taxi from Hamilton is in the vicinity of NZ$100 each way.
