Guide at a Glance
Waipa, Waikato, New Zealand
David Smith is the owner and tour guide of Karamu Trail Track. He is a fourth generation New Zealander and was born and raised in his family farm. The farm was originally 100 acres, and later expanded to include neighbouring properties. Trail bike riding was such a passion for the Smith family, David founded Karamu Trail Track on the farm in the eighties. Until the mid nineties, it was only open once a month to the public, but seeking new adventure, David bought a small collection of horses with the goal of adding horseback riding to their services!
Since 2001, numerous people have visited David’s farm to enjoy horseback rides. The family home, built in the 1950′s, has been used as a lodge since 2008. The horse tracks are built along hundreds of acres of hills and bush, and David continues to add new tracks to keep his customers interested. David has a fantastic team to keep the farm running. If you are looking for a relaxing day in the countryside of New Zealand, David is your go-to person.
