A heart full of horse and memories filled with mountain moments

Arriving at the homestead, your horses are saddled waiting for your horseback holiday to begin.

Today, once you are settled into the saddle, we will be riding deep into the heart of a tussock laden valley towards a stunning tarn filled with trout. Lunching at a historic musterer’s hut we enjoy time in the mountains and the raw beauty of the high country landscape.

Exploring the mountains is so much fun on horseback

Riding Day 2

6 hours riding

Riding a river climbing a gorge

The Ahuriri river is a braided glacial river forged at the base of the mountains from snow melt. It is crystal clear and changes colours like a chameleon in every range of blue that you can consider.

Riding deep into the heart of the snow capped mountains we stop for lunch at a beautiful gorge. Leaving the horses at the bottom and climbing to discover the most incredible views.

Summit that Mountain on horseback

Today we gather our horses pack our lunches and head high into the mountain peaks looking down on the valleys that we have ridden the previous days riding. Furthermore we are about to summit a mountain on horseback, how many people can tick that off their bucket list?

Stunning views of snow capped mountains leave us all feeling on top of the world.
