Quiet well trained horses will take you on a scenic journey along the banks of the mighty Waimakariri River at a pace that suits your ability. First time riders are more than welcome, as are families with pony rides, short treks to the river and back as well as our half hour Robin ride.
Or just chill out and relax in our comfortable picnic area.
Our Riding school offers 1 on 1 lessons for adults and children of all levels, school holiday riding programs and even leasing option.
