Coast meets country glamping and tours
Kiley, Dylan Pullman and children Paige and Sonny are your hosts at Sandy Bay Horses, along with 8 horses and 5 dogs - Syd, Brownie, Bolt, Roxy and Bluey.
Originally, the property was a dairy farm owned by Dylan's Grandparents and Great Grandparents. Kiley and Dylan and their children are the 4th and 5th generations to live on the land.
Over the last 11 years, Kiley and Dylan have been reestablishing the native trees and plants that once would have covered the property. Of particular pride to the family are the kuwharuwharu tuna (long-fin eels) that thrive in their valley. They're an ancient species who have lived in the stream on the property for over 20 years. They are very much cherished and protected by the family who regards them as pets.
Kiley and Dylan love their beach locality, the beauty and the warm climate of their Northland location.
Setting up glamping on their land has been a dream for a long time and they look forward to welcoming you to enjoy it!
Kiley has connected with horses most of her life. After many years working in different areas with horses she now encourages people to come and experience some moments with her horses and give them lots of affection! They each have their own horsenality and like their routine! The herd of 8 are a family and have a dynamic together, they have been together for a long time and some have been born on the land.
"Its about relaxing and enjoying them, having a laugh and giving plenty of praises, encouraging them to feel safe and happy while healing for the person at the same time".
