We are experienced riders and usually the school horses are frustrating to ride. The horses we had, had enough energy to be able to trot and canter as well as be quiet enough to take in the scenery. The horses are all well looked after. The trek itself was amazing. Would recommend to anyone.

This has to be the best horse riding place in NZ. It was a wonderful experience, and challenge actually, for my wife and two girls aged 18 and 15, that are all quite experienced. Well done all crew at Ben Lomond station!!!

Loved, loved loved it! It was an amazing ride. As a very experienced rider i was eager to find a horse trekking place that suited my skill level. I was scared that we would just do a walk with a bit of trotting. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. My mum, my sister and I did a private... More

The Ben Lomond Horse trekking was a highlight of our trip. Booking and our pick up (from Queenstown) was complication free. The horse trekking is located in a beautiful, scenic valley with mountains on either side. The staff were very accomodating for larger people (up to 100kgs) and were very helpful and were clear in their instructions. The Horses all... More

I feel sooo happy that I booked Ben Lomond Horse Trekking. Nice guides, nice horses, nice views, making it the best activity in Queenstown. Yes! Like you guys, it is the first time I ride a horse. I am really nervous on the road, but after the safety guide talk and riding for just a couple of minutes, I get... More

Me and my friend came for the gills creek trek and were super nervous when booking due to a previous very bad and only experience with horses. However the staff and the horses at Ben lomond gave us our confidence back and we can't wait to ride again! Right from being picked up with the free transport in town by... More

The setting for the ride was simply breathtaking. The horses seemed well cared for and were, for the most part, quite agreeable trekking companions (wrestling with the reigns to get your horse to stop eating became a bit odious after a while - but the were otherwise cooperative and agreeable). My only real disappointment was the languid pace of the... More

A co-worker and I decided to do something that would get us out of the city and a chance to see the wonderful landscape. I am a horseback rider and have been on various rides during vacations. I was very impressed with the condition of the horses; it's always comforting to see animals well taken care of. The guides were... More
