NEW ZEALAND

There is perhaps nowhere in the world more enchanting or naturally beautiful than New Zealand. Stretching 1600km across two islands, it is a land of rugged coastlines, active volcanoes, alpine lakes and glacial valleys, ripe for exploring on Horseback. Riding Holiday options are simply endless in New Zealand. On North Island, gallop along the endless deserted sandy beaches. Ride into the hills and bush, surrounded be beautiful ocean views and cool sea breezes. Explore tranquil lakes, or follow one the many trails originally used by native Maori, trekking deep into lush majestic forests. The temperate climate make this an ideal all year round destination.

South Island is by contrast renowned for its snow-capped Alps, lakes and glaciers. Adventurous riders will relish in the challenge of long trail rides, high into the spectacular mountains. Ride sure footed horses through breath-taking scenery, absorbing yourself in the crystal clear alpine atmosphere. The thrill of traversing vast rivers on horseback, accompanied by trusty packhorses, sleeping out under canvas or in basic shearer’s huts and cooking on open fires all enhance the magical exhilaration riding in this location.

The combination of adventurous riding through an unsurpassable panorama with the mysterious Maori culture and excellent local hospitality, make truly once in a lifetime riding experience.
