Watch: Pop star Billie Eilish goes horse riding on West Auckland Beach

Billie Eilish took to a West Auckland beach on horseback during her time in New Zealand in a brief reprieve from her packed touring schedule.

Before her sold out show at Auckland's Spark Arena, the 17-year-old pop star took a trip out to Muriwai for a trek along the beach.

In the video, Eilish tells the guides that she used to work at a horse camp as a counselor, where she helped in the stables and did jumping.

"That was a while ago..I rode for years, but it's been a minute," she said.

Eilish was clearly enamoured with the horse she was paired with, greeting it with a "hello, pretty!" before jumping on.

The trek took the 'Bad Guy' singer and her entourage along a stretch of the wild West Coast beach, which she dubbed "sick".

Eilish was greeted with a powhiri and waita of her song 'When The Party's Over' upon arrival at Auckland Airport, performed by Hātea Kapa Haka.

She was moved to tears by the welcome, which would set the tone for a moving visit.

"Never cried more in my life," she captioned an image of the crowd at her Spark Arena show.

"I don't know how to say what i want to say about tonight... just thank you," she added.
