Horse Trek - 2 Hour Waimak River Horse Trek
Located within the Christchurch City limits you can be forgiven for thinking you are in the middle of nowhere.
Just a 15 minute drive from the central city you can experience the peace and tranquillity of the countryside on horseback.
The lower reaches of the Waimakariri River are noted for their large braided river beds, bird colonies and stunning glacial blue waters!.
Our trails take you past the patchwork paddocks and hedge windbreaks typical of the Canterbury plains, through the lush foliage of the woodlands next to the river and out onto the expansive river
With the river permitting we will guide you through the crystal clear waters where we can water the horses and enjoy the unique sensation of river crossing on horseback.
Twice as much to see and experience on this two hour ride!
We have horses and ponies to suit all abilities so you can choose the pace that suits you (a leisurely stroll or trot /canter) and soak up the stunning scenery and great riding spaces along the Waimakariri River.
Our experienced guides will lead the way through this beautiful area and take photo's along the way which we can transform into a postcard that you can send home to friends and family!.
Children are very welcome - why not bring the whole family!.
On your return enjoy a complimentary cuppa and biscuit with the team and play with or feed our friendly farm animals. We have pet sheep, a goat, sheep dogs, calves and cats and even a foal that will be happy to meet you and have photo's taken with you!.
