A wonderful pony camp for my five year old son. Gill's caring nature and sense of fun made it a fabulous week during the summer holidays. Thank you so much!

Such an amazing horsie camp, my daughters have just come home from there second camp, and had a ball.

Best idea ever for getting to know a new horse, in a safe challenging environment, caring for a stabled horse for a week gets the horse to know and trust it's new rider. Lovely bonding week had by both.

Hired a horse for other daughter and they are lovely kind trustworthy ponies.

Thanks Gill for taking such great care of our wee family. They will be back.

My daughter went on her 1st ever pony camp at Beachbrook Stables last week and absolutely loved it and did not want to come home afterwards. I highly recommend Beachbrook Stables to any Horse loving child.

I wanted to write a review to say how impressed we were with our party at Beachbrook stables.

What a fabulous afternoon we had! We went with a group of eight children aged 4-11 and they all had a blast!

The children loved grooming the ponies and leading them around, we then played some games, Gill was so patient with the children and they had lots of fun competing in teams against each other. The horse-riding was a great hit for all the children.

We would highly recommend a party at Beachbrook with Gill and her team, excellent value and a real treat! We will be going back!

I used to be a really nervous rider so bad i wasn't comfortable to ride without the lunge line most of the time, and heading to my lessons i would always get butterflies in my stomach with being so nervous, and then i met a lady who i refer to as superwoman with magical powers, also known as Gillian Hayes at beachbrook stables who within such a short space of time has given me so much confidence and I'm now troting and cantering without my safety cord and loving my lessons so much!!! Thank you so much gillian for giving me the confidence i needed and making riding so enjoyable i always leave beachbrook stables on such a buzz.- "Mandy Bentley"

Hi Gill, just a quick email from The New Zealand Womens Canoe Polo Team to say a big thank you for our awesome afternoon of Team Building Activities last Saturday. For some of the girls it was stepping way out of the comfort zone and they were terrified to hop on to the horses. In true Gill style you encouraged and helped them overcome their fear. It was a fantastic afternoon of 'team bonding', the highlight was watching those that were more confident, stepping up to help and encourage their team mates, this was great for us Coaches to see how well people interacted and coped while under pressure, of which all helps with our selections for Teams for the Canoe Polo World Cup in France in September. Thanks for accommodating us, on the Saturday, especially as we found out, on the afternoon that it was your birthday. I would encourage any other team, business etc that is looking for a fun, but challenging way to do Team Building exercises to contact Gill and Beachbrook Stables. Regards Peter Housiaux, Head Coach New Zealand Women's Canoe Polo.

What an amazing place for kids( and Mum ! ) to learn and love everything about ponies! My daughter had the best week with you guys, thank you for building such fantastic memories for her. Your safe, caring and family environment made it really easy for her to be confident and to learn so much in a week. The gymkhana was her highlight and her ribbons hang very proud in her room ! Thank you so much !! "Kelly Meyer"

A big THANK YOU for the wonderful afternoon evening we had with you and your team - all I can say from a non-horsey girl was the afternoon was amazing. We have done many team building things over the years with our staff (rafting, paintball, go-karting, high ropes, surf), but this was one of the most challenging and fun things we have done in years.

I was impressed to see some of our staff (including me) step out of their comfort zone and get involved in the wonderful creative things you had in store for us. But did have a wee smile at some of our more "fit rugby player types" not wanting a bar of the activities (but still enjoyed watching).

Gill you run a fantastic operation, professional, safe, challenging, but fun, you and your staff were on hand at all times to push us, but to also assist and encourage us when you needed to. The dinner and drinks that you organised for us afterwards wound up what was a perfect afternoon for the Concrete Doctors. Thank you so much. If any other business/ group want a top Team Building Event to do , then I highly recommend Beachbrook Stables.

Thanks Gill and I am sure you will see Pete and I again.

Hey Gill, just wanted to say an enormous thank you for making JTs birthday so enjoyable yesterday. It was a great positive experience for those that haven't had anything to do with horses before, they all had a wicked time. My niece and nephew both want to have their parties at Beachbrook! And for me it was so easy, having a party at Beachbrook took all the stress and organizing off me. You have a great reassuring manner with the kids, you are fantastic at what you do!! Thanks again.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you and Chris for a great party on Saturday. The girls had a fabulous time and talked about their experiences the whole way back to Wellington! I especially wanted to thank you for the way you handled those that were nervous around the horses - I could see confidences growing as I watched!

Hi Gill,

Just wanted to say what an awesome time we're having with the lessons. Derek can't believe that he might actually do some jumping and feels he's learnt more in 3 lessons with you than he has in the 6+ years of riding he's done. I'm amazed I'm doing a rising trot given I was a complete non-rider and can't wait to learn more. You've a natural gift with children and have made it really fun for Oscar. My family have all ordered the photo of Oscar on Dude and think Dude is the cutest wee horse they've ever seen!

Looking forward to lots more lessons.

My husband Ian and I have just had the most wonderful horse riding Easter weekend at Beachbrook. Ian has only just this year returned to horse riding after a approx 40 years break and he is absolutely buzzing as to how much he enjoyed it all. Gillian & her husband Chris with their two delightful children Olivia & Ben were the perfect hosts and went the extra mile to make sure we were all well catered for. We have had a marvellous time. Thank You Gillian & Chris also your great team of helpers / caterers / entertainers, plus all the other nice friendly people on the camp for making our week memorable and special.

Last but certainly not least a very special thank you on behave of our horses Rosie & Abbey to the "Carrot Lady" as we fondly nick named you. You also made our horses day special.

Hope we all keep in touch and do it again.

regards Lois & Ian.

I breed train and sekll Australian Small Performance Horses, a type of horse originated from miniature horses taht have gone overheight. I am impressed with the quality of your miniatures and very pleases to see that you believe in gelding too. I also geld all my colts, as i have one stallion and should i ever get an outstanding colt i might be tempted to keep it a stallion, however i breed for performance for harness and riding so geldings and mares are more desirable.
