Horse Trekking Options

Experience the freedom of riding using natural horsemanship techniques, encouraging communication and connection between horse and rider. All our horses are ridden bitless and barefoot—no metal in their mouths or on their hooves.

River Valley Stables specializes in “Rides for Riders” – from a half-day trek to a multi-day horse riding holiday, and our packages can be tailored to suit you.

Alternatively, email our Adventure Consultants on the lodge@rivervalley.co.nz , who can help match your abilities and desires with the right adventure.
