What you'll do

We start by introducing you to your trusted mount, fit the safety equipment and start with a brief riding lesson so that you have full control of your horse to ensure maximum fun. We then start our wonderful, relaxing horseback riding adventure by exploring the Forest, wondering around tall and magestoc trees where we may run into a hobbit or two as well as rabbits before we go on a short ride to a working rick quarry amdnits almost Luna landscape. Then we follow the relaxing Waianakarua River as it winds gently down towards the sea where you will see some amazing native bird life as well as the most unique rock formations seen anywhere in the world. We will go past dragons eggs, Moeraki Boulders, a turtle’s eye and even a taniwha’s lair, with the only way to get to these spots is by foot or horse. Often we are the only people on the river and it will feel as if we have the world to ourselves. Ending with a short hill ride to take in the spectacular views ending up at our base again.
