Take a Peep in2 our World of Horses

There are so many things that we as a company do each day to achieve the end result, creating your dream horseback holiday.

We thought that you would like to share in those moments. As you are actually one of the team.

Our team has a lot of fun while we work hard so share in some of our fun times and some of our sad times.

Together they make the whole.

Lunch Time

Laughter is a Great Healer

There is always time to chat on the trails as we ride along.

I just love the sounds of laughter ringing out in the mountains as we ride.

Lunchtime we always try to stop somewhere beautiful so that the guests and crew can enjoy the locations we ride.

Tie the horses up and share the funny stories that life has dealt us all.

My Dad says, “better to laugh than cry” and boy is that wee statement so true.

Barbecue Buddies

If this barbecue at the Birchwood Homestead could talk it would tell a few stories!

So many wonderful times we have spent by this barby or just inside the huge kitchen next to it.

Every Kiwi Bloke knows it is their job to do the barby food, yes, it is a tradition here.

Notice the oven gloves draped strategically over the shoulder, this is to let everyone know, he’s the chef in charge.

Orders flow continuously, get this, where’s that, carry this, they honestly never end.

It really is wonderful to have this “home from home” where we can totally showcase our amazing NZ South Island.

The location is breathtaking, steeped in history and filled with incredible tales from the high country.

Had a wonderful 5 days trekking Lake Hawea, Hunter Valley with Adventure Trekking. Angie and John are great hosts and work very hard to ensure we all have a great experience. The food, the scenery, horses and accommodation are all super, thank you.

I loved every minute of the four days I spent with John & Ange, an awesome group of like-minded riders, and their beautiful heard of horses, (and Tui the dog of course!). On the Birchwood Station trek we explored beautiful countryside and ate delicious meals, all prepared by Ange. I was very sad to leave but I am already planning my next trek - I'm hooked!

What an incredible adventure completing the Musterers Pack Trail from St Bathans to the Ahuriri Valley. We waded through rivers, crossed shingle slides, scaled mountains, stayed in back country huts and experienced a range of weather, all of which added to the journey. John our guide was amazing, a great host and an exceptional horseman. The horses were all stunning, obviously so well loved and cared for. Angie prepared delicious food for us to cook up in the huts and made us wonderful meals before and after our trek. I could not recommend this company enough if you want to experience an authentic horse trek in Central Otago.

Feel so privileged to be able to experience the NZ backcountry on horse-back. The horses are purpose bred, know their job and give you confidence to enjoy the scenery and this incredible experience. Wonderful hosts, stories and evening laughs. Loved it!!

This trek exceeded all of our expectations. John and Angie are fantastic and their helpers, Natalie and Suzie where awesome. Our horses, Tussock and Chanook where so good and matched well to our riding capabilities. This is an immersive experience and we loved how we could be involved with as much as we wanted to, such as catching horses, helping with saddles, as well as helping in the huts. The scenery and experience was exceptional and I would recommend Adventure Horse Trekking to anyone who wants an authentic South Island horse trekking experience. Thank you for such good memories.

Expect the unexpected! Exceptional value for money. Our family group was part of a larger group riding the Birchwood 3 day boutique trail. Everyone had their individual needs meet with care and precision. Think varied days on horse back, well cared for and loved horses, great food, great beds with lovely clean linen, entertainment in the evenings and friendly smiles all the while. What more could you ask for!!
