At 24 August 2021:  We are waiting to hear more about moving out of Level 4 Lockdown.  Once we have this information we will be open as outlined below.  Stay safe everyone.



From 3 May until Monday 6 September 2021 we will only be offering our Mid Rivers - one hour ride, our Rees River Trail and Rees River Pro half day rides, and Mountain High, River Deep full day rides on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

However, if you are part of a group of four or more please contact us and we will attempt to schedule the trek you would like to do on the day that works for you.

We appologise for any inconvenience this may cause otherwise and hope that this will change as our bubbles extend and we can operate at full capacity soon.

Thanks from the Team at High Country Horses.

Explore Your Backyard

We are so excited….


These are unprecedented times, and while there is a lot we don’t know about our futures, what we do know is for a short time, New Zealanders will have the exclusive opportunity to explore their own backyard.

High Country Horses is here to help Kiwis living and working in Aotearoa during Level 2 and 1 to make the most of this once in a lifetime chance to get out there and rediscover this beautiful part of the world.

We have nearly 100 horses and 150,000 acres to ride through and all we need now is you.  

Check out our two hour and full day rides offered all year round and over night ride adventures during summer, and contact us if you would like more information or to book.   

“I have horse trekked everywhere I can in New Zealand, from the top of the north down. This was the most amazing of all!! I am speechless. All I can say is great guides and well cared for horses. Well done!”
