Burt is lovely and very welcoming and accomodating, although the girls who were with Burt were not very friendly, especially the tail leader who came across grumpy, however Burt does make this experience one to try

Went on the 3 Day Trek into the mountains. Holly was an excellent guide and the horses were as laid back and peaceful as the scenery. One of those trips that will last forever, but would love to do it all again.

It is an amazing ride - we feel it ticks all the boxes for a great look at back country New Zealand. Enjoyed your company as well.
