Set on typical New Zealand sheep and beef country, this experience truly encompasses the characteristics of a genuine Kiwi experience!
My trek there was with a group of fellow New Zealanders and it wowed us completely and made us really appreciate what we have right here at our back door.
Peter our trek guide took us over a variety of country, when we had the whole day to ride. Winding our way to be atop ridges, amongst cattle, tussock,matagouri, rock, bogs and we relished the challenge and felt priviledged to be amongst such magnificent and unspoilt country. Fog kept conditions cool, but our horses appreciated it, and what we lost out on a view was more than compensated for by the enjoyment of being in a remote peaceful beautiful working property.The following day Peter took us on a shorter ride up the rugged Otiake river. This riverbed is full of clear, pristine mountain water intersersed with boulders and edged with matagouri.
Peter's horses are tough working horses, tailor made for the job and are used for mustering in their spare tme!
Why go to Stoneridge Treks? - because that is where you will get a real Kiwi experience, trekking through rugged New Zealand country on custom built horses and lead by a 'real Kiwi bloke' - no prissy expreience here, just the 'real McCoy'!
