SAFETY: The safety of our horses, staff and clients are paramount. While every effort is taken to match one of our horses temperaments with the riders ability, it is important to remember that a horse has a mind of its own and so a good account of your riding experience and ability is imperative to ensure you have an enjoyable time. We have a variety of horses that are suited to different riding levels, please consider the guide below before selecting your riding level.
What Rider Level Best Describes You?
|(A) EXPERIENCED||Someone who has ridden for a number of years and is confident on any horses with any temperaments. A person who will enjoy a forward responsive horse.|
|(B) INTERMEDIATE||Someone who can rise to the trot and sit to a canter comfortably, and can control their horse within, and independently, of the group. A person who will enjoy a more responsive horse.|
|(C&D) BEGINNER||Someone who has never ridden before or has only ridden a few times in a controlled environment. Or someone who has lost their nerve and just wants to go quietly to enjoy the view and be with their quiet natured horse.|
ALL CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 14 YEARS OLD AND UNDER MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN.
TRACK AND RIVER CONDITIONS: Weather in the high country can be extremely changeable and therefore cause river and track conditions to become dangerous to ride across or to ride at a faster pace. Therefore it is imperative each rider adheres to the direction of our qualified guide during the trek. While every effort is made to accommodate the intermediate and experienced rider's wishes we must consider yours and our horse's safety first.
