“Best horse riding experience we ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Before startinf our Rubicon Valley Track with Chris and his horseswe were both really nervous about sitting on a horse for 2 hours. Chris was very professional and made us feel safe. The horses were very calm and relaxed and we really enjoyed the 2 hour track which showed NZ beautiful scenery and had a great afternoon with Chris and his horses. We definitely recommend this experience to everybody!

“Must-do and will do it again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

I don't do reviews but this was simply amazing. Our trek was initially cancelled due to the rain and I am so glad that we were able to reschedule it on another day and it had perfect weather. The views we got to see were absolutely breathtaking, and the horses were all so adorable, unique and endearing. Chris (the guide) was very knowledgeable and his love for his horses is evident and made the whole experience that much more enjoyable. They were also willing to cater to our larger group of 7 people. Thank you for the unforgettable experience!

Awesome guide, awesome ride :)

“Good time, very enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

This is my first review ever in Trip advisor. Big family, 3 adults and 2 kids (4 and 8). Nice weather and beautiful horses, views and good company. Even the little one can ride a big horse for all 2 hours. We were all have a really good time. Very enjoyable. Chris is a good guide and teacher. Impressed with his "office".
Highly recommend. Must be book in advance.
