Experience the beauty of New Zealand's Franz Josef Glacier country on horseback. This is horse riding in paradise with a stunning backdrop of mountain ranges and rainforest. Soak up the magnificent views of the Southern Alps and the spectacular glacier, as you trek over lush farmland, glacial moraine and riverbed

Taken care of by trekking guides who are very experienced riders and fully understand that if you are accustomed to being on horseback, you will expect to enjoy your ride at a faster pace than a walk. South Westland's aim is to make your ride the unforgettable experience you deserve. Treks are tailored to suit all - the non-rider to the experienced horse person.

The Appaloosa horses are quiet and well mannered, making them suitable mounts for even the most nervous rider. Treks progress at a safe pace, adjusted to your level of experience, and vary in length from 1 to 6 hours, all year round. Trek routes and times may vary depending on the weather
