There is SO much goodness to our ride in the North Island of New Zealand known as The River Valley Ride. As a circular point-to-point ride, you’ll start and end at your guide, Nicola Megaw’s family home: River Valley Lodge – a fifth generation family-owned lodge that sits poised on the wild Rangitikei River. With the on-the-move nature of this ride you’ll traverse jaw-dropping, ever-changing scenery. Just imagine: dreamy canters across bowling green pastures dotted with flocks of happy sheep, getting lost in pristine native bush where the silver ferns tickle your horses belly, loping across wispy pampas and bareback swimming.
The absolute gift of an eight day ride is the flow that comes with consistent time in the saddle. You’ll fall into a gentle rhythm with your horse, your fellow globetrotters and your guides, giving yourself the time to disconnect so that you can re-connect.
