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!

Private Tour

We basically got our own private tour because we went on a day when the ranch was hit as busy. We actually booked this excursion the night before which was very convenient and easy especially getting picked up from the city center to the ranch. Friendly staff and our instructor, Julia, was great! Our horses Goose and Buddy were hilarious and very friendly, too. Goose liked to stop for snack breaks and Buddy was pretty much in his own world talking his sweet time during our trek. We loved this excursion as part of our honeymoon. Definitely recommend.

Magical experience

Riding through the valley and up to Moke Lake was a magical experience! There were spectacular views in every direction! Our guide Kim was lovely and knowledgeable, and our horses Munster and Tigger were great companions for novice riders like me and my husband. We highly recommend this trek!
