Best trail ride ever - great family experience

I was so impressed with the running of this trek on every level. The guides were extremely helpful in every way - from arranging transport from Queenstown to selecting the right horse for each rider and showing us how to manage our horses. They kept an eye on everyone during the ride, and reacted quickly if anyone was having difficulty, and also talked to the group about the scenery along the way. They even offered to take photos of us on our horses with our own cameras at the end. The most impressive part was the exceptional treatment of the horses. The horses are relaxed because they are not overworked and are treated with great respect and care. And that's before you even mention the beautiful views!
