The scenery is truly spectacular, the environment pristine and the horse riding treks and tours offer something for the novice and seasoned rider alike.
Rugged mountains, beautiful lakes, stunning views and river crossings are all available to you enjoy free from smog, noise and cars. Whether you are an experienced horseperson or a complete novice, Queenstown has the horse riding tour for you.
Ben Lomond trekking. Discover Queenstown’s best kept secret at Ben Lomond station. This tranquil location covers an area of 35,000 acres of farmland, can only be assessed on horseback, foot or by bike, and as such, presents one of the few places that you can truly feel at one with nature. There are regular guided tours of varying lengths suitable for beginners through to experienced horse riders. These tours will help you view some of the most stunning and beautiful scenery on earth.

Dart Stables. A must visit place for Lord of the Rings fans, Dart Stables provides guided trips to some of the most spectacular scenery featured in the movie trilogy.
There are tours suitable for all ages and for all skill levels and there is a heavy emphasis upon the featured sites of the Lord of the Rings. The Ride of the Rings, the River and the Rings and the Trilogy Loop (for seasoned experience riders only) all will take you to spots that you will recognise from Middle Earth.
Special mention must be made of the Trilogy Loop, which is regarded as the ultimate ride for experienced riders. This three and a half ride follows the path of Suraman’s army in the movie and will allow you to see some of the most amazing scenery. Be sure to take your camera!
Walter Peak. This horse riding tour is a little more languid than the other two. Combine a tranquil cruise across Lake Wakatipu with an invigorating forty-minute horse ride at Walter Peak.
