Moke Lake Horse Trek - 1.5 Hr - Ben Lomond Horse Treks

A relaxed paced horse trek through beautiful farmland to the shores of Moke Lake.

Highlights

  • Easy grade terrain and walking pace - perfect for beginners, families and children
  • Beautiful Queenstown back country ride surrounded by rugged mountains and local farm animals
  • Ride through slow moving rivers and along the shores of Moke Lake
  • Safety ensured with hand picked horses and comfortable saddles fitted with a special safety stirrup
  • Experienced and supportive accompanying guide

Meet our friendly horses and saddle up for a trek across our working farm to the beautiful Moke lake, located just 20 minutes from central Queenstown.

Our relatively flat ride trail is set beneath high rugged mountains, through fresh water rivers leading us to the shores of Moke Lake - a picturesque lake often missed by the tourist crowds.

All riders will get up close and personal to the farm animals such as the Merino sheep, Angus cattle, Paradise ducks and local birdlife making the experience even more surreal.

We cross many slow moving fresh water rivers and streams before reaching Moke Lake where you will be blown away by its beauty - especially on a clear day.

This ride is perfect for beginners and families with younger children, our well trained horses and experienced guides will look after each and every rider to make them feel safe and comfortable along the way.

All of our horses are fitted with soft freeform endurance style saddles providing a comfortable ride for both the rider and the horse. So come along and explore the farm and Moke Lake for yourself!

Amazing

Absolutely loved our time on the Moke Lake trek. I had the pleasure of having Goose as my horse and he certainly is a character . Our guide was fantastic and reassuring when I got a bit nervous as this was my first time riding a horse.

Nice quiet horse riding experience

The guides were absolutely perfect. They kept checking on customers’ condition on the horses’ back. Provided perfect support for beginners. Wonderful experience with spectacular scenery and walking tour along the way. Our guides, Victoria and Beitt, are very friendly and supportive. Nice morning walk with some cute horses!

One to Remember!

Our experience with Ben Lomond Horse Treks was a fun and memorable one! The guides were experienced and friendly and our horses, Dude & Boom, were beautiful. It was our first time on a horse and our ride left us wanting more! Stunning views of Moke Lake too. Highly recommend!
