Heavenly Horse Treks - 2 Hour Trek - Martinborough

Spend 2 hours of pure delight in stunning South Wairarapa countryside, as you feel the earth thumping beneath you and your horse.

Riversdale Station is home to Heavenly Horse Treks and has been in the family of your hosts Ben and Georgie Lutyens since 1842. It stands as one of the earliest farmed stations in New Zealand.

You’ll find a stable of meticulously selected horses, both for their temperament and character. With Station bred, Quarter horse, Standard bred, Appaloosa, Paint and Clyde, there’s a horse to fit you!

Stock and game roam free on the station, there’s hardly a gate and few fences. The tracks are never ending, with wide open riverbeds, rolling hills and views that just don’t stop. You will be guided by a friendly and knowledgeable equine expert.

Need to know:

  • Riding hats are provided
  • Foot wear: a boot with a small heel or tramping boots are suitable. Running or track shoes are not ideal but will suffice.
  • Wear long trousers. Track pants are ideal, loose and comfortable. Not Jeans.
  • Bring a light wind proof/water proof jacket.
  • Don't forget sun cream and your camera.
  • A basic lesson is included if required.

    Magical Place

    Amazing place and well worth the trip from Wellington. Views were spectacular and the staff friendly. The only slight downside was that some of the horses were a little too fond of eating grass. Overall, we would highly recommended Heavenly Horse Treks.
