New Zealand’s highest guided horse trek! Plenty of cantering on nice forward moving fun horses and a stop-over for photos at our hitching rail high up the mountain, an even more exclusive alpine equine experience! Allow a good 2.5 hours for this high speed ride.
The lovely team of trekking horses at the Cardrona are waiting to take you on an unforgettable journey into the mountains. They have been handpicked for their kind and gentle temperament and behaviour both on the ground and under saddle. There are a selection of ages, heights and “horsanalities” across the herd to cater for riders of differing weights and riding experience levels.
There is a one-on-one riding lesson with each rider before the trek departs to ensure riders are confident with how to steer and stop, although your hosts do encourage the more humane “loose rein” style of riding so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery!
