Experience ~ Horse Riding

Ride the High Country

Experience a magic horseback adventure on our high country station. Whether a first time rider or born to the saddle, you will enjoy a stunning few hours within a horse riding landscape second to none in New Zealand.

Working with Glenorchy’s most respected horse riding outfitters, rides of varied durations for every ability are expertly catered for.

Perhaps our most popular ride “The Rees River Trail” showcases the best of the region.  “This 2.5 hour ride caters for beginners, intermediate and experienced riders looking for a relaxed paced scenic trail. Designed to take in the stunning scenery that is Glenorchy, the Rees river trail takes clients across farmland and onto the Rees River. You will experience crossing glacial fed waters, ride amongst the lupin / wild flower fields, and be awe inspired by our beautiful snow-capped mountain ranges known famously from LOTR, Hobbit, The Chronicles of Narnia, Mission Impossible and Wolverine origins. Come and have a REAL Kiwi experience!”

Minimal riding experience required, but please note the weight limit of 95kgs/210lbs per rider.
