River Trail - Half Day

Really nice staff and horses. Good if you like to walk single file as the horses really like to walk in a line and there's not much room to ride side by side. Little slow if you're used to fast pace riding but relaxing and good scenery to take in :)

Highlight of my trip to Queenstown

The High Country Horses, Rees River Trail was such a wonderful experience. The staff were friendly and helpful, our trail guide was lovely and had a lot of knowledge of the surrounding area and the horses themselves. I would definitely suggest taking gloves and warm socks though, it was very cold on a horse in winter, especially when you're in the shade. There were warm socks at the stables that could be purchased if need be. Horses looked well looked after and had plenty of food and grass to graze.

Excellent

I did the half day trek. There were 5 of us in the group (all intermediate and advanced level) plus the guide. The horses were quite lively and responsive. The pace of the trek was good - lots of trotting and cantering. The scenery was beautiful and the route was fun and interesting and included riding through rivers. All in all, the best trek i’ve been on, would definitely recommend!
