Horse Trekking in New Zealand

Something for everyone

Whether you’re exploring a gold mining river, a wilderness beach, lush native forest or crossing an alpine pass, New Zealand’s pristine beauty tends to transport your mind back to the pioneering days. Trekking on horseback, as the early settlers did, is very much in harmony with the feel and pace of our landscapes.

There’s also something deeply natural and rewarding about interacting with animals and horses are no exception. Even on a short novice ride, you learn about your horse’s personality and develop a level of rapport and understanding. Our equestrian industry is internationally recognised and this extends to breeding horses that are ideal for trekking - reliable, friendly and easy to ride.
