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

Fantastic operation with professional, courteous staff and great horses - not to mention the spectacular scenery. We're a family of four with daughters aged 10 and 8. Each of us were given a horse suited perfectly and we strolled up the valley crossing several crystal clear streams, saying hello to young calves and sheep and given a terrific commentary of...

One of the best horse treks I've been on, amazing guide and beautiful scenery. Horses were wonderful and catered to all abilities meaning I was able to go for a canter while my brother was safely able to stay at his pace.

Took my two teenagers on a 2 hours trek through the most spectacular landscape. Friendly, informative staff and lovely horses. They catered well for the combination of a novice and a highly experienced rider, so that both enjoyed the trip without any issues. Highly recommended!

Amazing experience. It is about 15km from Queenstown centre, at Moke Lake. I've been on a few horse trekking tours and this looks to be set up professionally. Hiroko was our guide. She was sweet and very professional. There was a total of 4 people and Hiroko, another couple and my partner and I. We chose the 2 hour trek.... More

The pick up and drop off from Queenstown was punctual and the lady who was driving was friendly and chatty, making us feel very welcome. Once there we were kitted up, shown some basic instructions and then introduced to our horses. I've never ridden before so was grateful for the tutorial but would have liked a bit extra. It was...

Very disappointed. We were a group of 6 with various levels of experience. I assumed after reading the reviews on trip advisor and the website that we would be able to canter if we wished. I was so wrong, we walked the entire time. We paid $600 just to walk our horses when 4 of us are experienced horse riders.... More

The horses were selected based on the client's horse-riding experience (none needed by the way). If you have never ridden a horse before but want to experience it this is the perfect way of doing so. Led by a guide in a group of 4, the ride was pleasant, with beautiful scenery and even other animals to see along the... More

My friend and I booked for a private Moke Lake Trek session at 3 p.m. on a Friday afternoon. We were both inexperienced riders and thus figured we would go for the safest and easiest trek. It would be my first time on a horse and my friend’s second time. The 3 p.m. pick-up at the city centre was punctual... More
