See the spectacular mountain views of the Torlesse basin, as you horse trek through the valley to the Otarama lookout point. We ride past the magnificent snow fed Waimakariri Canyon and our high country farm with the back drop of the Southern Alps. 
We stop for refreshments and fantastic photo opportunities overlooking the Canyon before we ride down the terraces, following the musterers trail through the farmland. This ride is suitable for all ages, riding abilities and fitness but caters also for the more experienced riders with plenty of opportunities for some faster paced riding.
Our 2000 acre high country sheep farm situated in the Rubicon Valley near Springfield is a mixture of flat river terraces and rolling hills running alongside the magnificent Waimakariri River Canyon. There is spectacular scenery at every turn with ancient beach trees, native birds and over 3000 sheep.
All groups are small, so you get personal care and attention from our trained professional Trek Leaders. We pride ourselves on our family owned and operated business specializing in delivering truly professionally run activities with our horse trekking.
