Horse Trek - 2 Hour Waimak River Horse Trek

100% WEATHER REFUND GUARANTEE..

Located within the Christchurch City limits you can be forgiven for thinking you are in the middle of nowhere.

Just a 15 minute drive from the central city you can experience the peace and tranquillity of the countryside on horseback.

The lower reaches of the Waimakariri River are noted for their large braided river beds, bird colonies and stunning glacial blue waters!.

Our trails take you past the patchwork paddocks and hedge windbreaks typical of the Canterbury plains, through the lush foliage of the woodlands next to the river and out onto the expansive river bed.

With the river permitting we will guide you through the crystal clear waters where we can water the horses and enjoy the unique sensation of river crossing on horseback.

Twice as much to see and experience on this two hour ride!

We have horses and ponies to suit all abilities so you can choose the pace that suits you (a leisurely stroll or trot /canter) and soak up the stunning scenery and great riding spaces along the Waimakariri River.

Our experienced guides will lead the way through this beautiful area and take photo's along the way which we can transform into a postcard that you can send home to friends and family!.

Children are very welcome - why not bring the whole family! *** Please note this activity is not suitable for children under 15 years of age***

On your return enjoy a complimentary cuppa and biscuit with the team and play with or feed our friendly farm animals. We have pet sheep, a goat, sheep dogs, calves and cats and even a foal that will be happy to meet you and have photo's taken with you!.

Awesome!!

My daughter (8) was given this horse trek as a xmas present so my husband went with her. The guide, Zoe, was very informative of not only the horses but the surrounding environment too and provided them with a running commentary for the entire trek. Super friendly guides and relaxed easy to ride horses made for a wonderous trek. Cant say enough great things about whole experience. Taylor came away with a lot to talk about and a smile on her face, even thouhh she toppled off at one point (not holding on tight enough) best present ever she says!! Thanks very much!!🤩

Fantastic

The guides were so friendly and made you feel very welcome. They were very honest about the horses temperaments so we knew exactly what to expect from them. The horses were amazing and took great care of us. Would definitely recommend!
