Set amongst stunning riverside scenery, Waimak River Horse Treks offers a safe and enjoyable riding experience for all abilities!
Waimak River Horse treks is a family-run operation and is the closest horse trek business to Christchurch city.
Located within the Christchurch City limits you can be forgiven for thinking you are in the middle of nowhere. 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 bed. 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.
You can take this all in from the back of your trusty mount, especially chosen for your level of riding ability to ensure a safe and exciting experience. Choose the pace that suits you 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!
