Equiguys is a culmination of horse training that spans over 40 years gathered between owners Dafydd Flye and Shaun Horan. Their approach through the method of Equitation Science gives a sound and ethical training base for all horses and ponies that pass through their hands. Lately Dafydd and Shaun’s skills have been used to produce the very successful Hanmer Horse Trekking that has sat at the top of trip advisor for 2017, 2018 and 2019 earning certificates of excellence respectively in those years. Along side that was the award in 2018 noting the company as runner up ‘peoples choice award’ for the North Canterbury Business awards and the expose through AA magazine as New Zealand’s 101 things to do in New Zealand. These awards are purely thanks to the training methods through Equitation Science. Alongside Hanmer Horse Trekking both Dafydd and Shaun have operated the successful Brackenleigh Stud which produces cobs that are at the forefront of ridden Welsh Cobs in the country.
Equiguys offer remedial and breaking services for all horses and ponies with the added bonus of the high country environment which horses and ponies experience through their training with equiguys.
