River Valley Stables provides a variety of rides, for experienced riders, over dramatic central North Island hill country near Taihape in the Rangitikei District. Take in beautiful vistas with views out over the Ruahine ranges and Mount Ruapehu, as you ride through rural NZ hill country.
Full day treks are more suitable for intermediate riders, while our multi-day riding holidays are most suitable for solid intermediate or experienced riders. River Valley Stables is committed to a natural horsemanship approach to horse training, with horses mostly being ridden in halters (no bits). The horses are not shod, rather a bare foot trimmer attends to them at 6 weekly intervals.
Accommodation is available at River Valley Lodge for trekkers.
