Typical Day


Riding: Most of our rides involve between 4.5 and 6
hours riding a day except for our “Mountains to the
Sea” ride which has days of between 6 and 8 hours
riding.
The riding is varied and differs each day.
Ranging from riding along tracks and river flats to
following cattle and game tracks over mountain
ranges, the crossing of quiet streams and big rivers.
Wherever possible we ride separately from the pack
horses and the pace can include trotting and cantering
for those able.

Age range, type of group


Ability: Most rides are suitable for riders of all abilities but rides like “The Mountains to the Sea” are only
suitable for the experienced rider who can handle a real challenge and long days in the saddle.
We do have an age limit of 12 years on our longer rides and a weight limit of 100kg
Hurunui Horse Treks also operate Wagons Ho!
These multi day covered wagon treks run between
the alpine thermal resort of Hanmer Springs and
Nelson via the rugged Rainbow Track. These treks
are great for anybody to enjoy with plenty of fishing
and swimming opportunities along the way.

Sleeping and meals


Accommodations: These vary from sleeping under the stars, tents and rustic backcountry huts, historic cob houses
to modern bunkhouse quarters with showers and flush toilets on some of the stations. The “Station to Station” ride
however provides for quality farmstay accommodation on most nights.

cooked breakfast are supplied by the station owners
