Great experience

This was our first time house riding (myself and my 2 children). We wanted to do something different this time around in Queenstown but we're slightly nervous whether one of us would freak out 😀 We needn't worry. The guides explained the ropes very well and they matched the horses to reach person. We felt very safe and enjoyed the ride. Highly recommend this experience to people of all abilities.

Disappointing.

Was late to the experience and was not able to reschedule or get a refund. Disappointing.

Hi Claire, as you said, you were late and the trek already departed. Just as if you miss your plane. We hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.
