A horse riding trek in Queenstown is a memorable way to explore the gorgeous natural landscape of New Zealand. No other activity will have you as up close and personal to New Zealand’s pure beauty as horse riding does. Smell the smells and soak up the vistas on this soul rejuvenating pleasure. Whether you’re a seasoned equestrian or have never so much as petted a horse in your life, there are horse riding adventures suited to your level of experience based out of Queenstown.

Dart Stables horse riding is located in Glenorchy, 45 minutes’ drive from Queenstown on arguably one of the most scenic drives in New Zealand, even the world! Wind your way alongside Lake Wakatipu until you reach Glenorchy, situated at the northern end of the lake. If you are a Lord of the Rings fan then Dart Stables is your pick for your Queenstown horse riding. Just as Aragorn and Legolas galloped through the mountains and plains of New Zealand in the Lord of the Rings, so too can you. Gentle walks through Lord of the Rings filming locations are perfect for those who want to see the sights, while those who want to get their hearts pumping will enjoy galloping spiritedly through forests, splashing through the odd river along the way.

Visit Ben Lomond Horse Treks for a ride nestled within the mountains of Ben Lomond Station beside beautiful Moke Lake. Just a short 15km drive from Queenstown, Ben Lomond Horse Treks suits those on a little bit of a schedule but still wanting to experience the untouched scenery New Zealand has to offer on horseback. The shortest 1.5 hour Moke Lake trek sees you wandering through the picturesque valley of Ben Lomond Station. If you’re after something a little more adventurous, climb the mountains up to 200m above the valley floor and ride back through historical gold mining country.

If you’re looking for something more than just a Queenstown horse ride, check out Walter Peak Horse Treks. Catch the iconic Earnslaw steamship across Lake Wakatipu from Queenstown to Walter Peak where you will embark on a 40 minute horse trek. You’ll be in awe at the many incredible viewpoints showcasing spectacular Lake Wakatipu and its dramatic surrounds. This is a gentle Queenstown horse ride perfect for the beginner rider. Horse riding is a unique way to experience the countryside but also one of the best ways to really stop and take in your surrounds so if you haven’t considered doing a horse ride while you are visiting Queenstown then maybe reconsider your itinerary. You won’t regret it.
