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.
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.
Stunning views of snow capped mountains leave us all feeling on top of the world.
Hold the Memories of the Mountains in your heart
Today we say goodbye to our beautiful horses and the breathtaking Ahuriri Valley but we will always and ever hold the memories of the mountains in our hearts.
Our wonderful trail taxi team will have you back in Queenstown by 1:30pm
