We had an absolutely amazing two hours on this horse trekking experience. My husband and son (aged 6) had never previously ridden, but Kelly and team made them feel at ease and ensured they had a safe and enjoyable time. My son fell in love...More
What a sensational ride, our horses were perfectly matched to our ability, lots of opportunity for ‘running’, amazing scenery and really interesting history about the gold rush, and local information. Highly recommended, look forward to same again next year!
We had an excellent afternoon with Sam. It was my first time of horse riding, and Sam explained all the things to know very well. The tour of the Cardrona Valley is beautiful, the drink at the Cardrona Hotel very good (their White Sauvignon is...More
Excellent horses, all in great condition, happy in their work and with their welfare the top priority, which made me very happy. Long rein riding that ensures the horse's mouths are protected. Would advise that if you do the lunch time ride you are a...More

NZ law specifies we cannot allow customers to take pillion passengers, as this is not safe, but the great thing is that we have bikes for kids of various sizes and we provide full instruction before the ride. There are a variety of trails we can choose from depending on the capability of the children.
July can be a bit busier with the ski season just kicking off so you are best to book online on my website look for “The River Run”
Bring plenty of warm clothes, some gloves and a jacket, the views are beautiful but it can be chilly!
Look forward to riding with you soon!
I’m not sure if there are taxis in Wanaka. If not you will have to hire a car. Note that the Cardrona Hotel that I reviewed is some distance from the snowfields. The hotel is about 20 minutes drive from Wanaka town.
