How often do you actually find this type of experience?
A Full Day Horse Trek with River Valley Stables may be what you are looking for. This ride (5 -6 hours in the saddle), is the most demanding trail riding that we do.
River Valley Stables operates at some of the highest elevations of any trekking operation in New Zealand, so weather conditions can change quickly. This alters our choice of trails used on any given day.
If the weather is looking okay, then the ride will be to the top of Pukeokahu (1000 metres above sea level), what we call a hill, but many would call a mountain. Many of the trails are steep, however the views from the top are incredible – you will just have to take our word for it and check them out yourself!
