Awesome must to do activity!!!!! This is one of the best activities my wife and I did while on our holidays. Our guide helena was excellent, and as inexperienced riders made us feel comfortable very quickly. Horses are well trained and know exactly how to behave. The scenery is spectacular.

Hi Pauline and I had an amazing ride with Amanda, Sulley, Spud and Murphy. We are beginner riders but we were taught how to handle and ride the horses comfortably, even if Spud had a few other ideas. We highly recommend High Country Horses to anyone at any level. The scenery and experience blew us away

Product rating:

Fantastic experience we recommend it to any one of any ability

I have ridden a horse once. But that is about all the experience I have. Can I still try the horse trek? Is it accessible for beginners?

Hi,
My friend and I are really keen on coming, but we are staying in Queenstown and will not have access to a car, is there any other way of getting there from Queenstown?

Comments

Unfortunately, there are no transport options unless you can drive yourself out to Glenorchy.

Hi There!

I wanted to confirm where the meet up point would be and if this would be in Glenorchy?

Just hoping to confirm prior to locking in a group tour on the 8th of July, thanks!

Comments

The High Country horses tour in Glenorchy, you need to meet at the stables which is just a 10-minute drive past Glenorchy. When we send you the booking confirmation it will have all the details of where to meet and what to bring etc but essentially if you are driving up from Queenstown its just another 10 minutes past the small Glenorchy township over the Rees river bridge towards Paradise.

Hi,
We are 3 adults and 2 kids coming to Queenstown. I have a few questions for you.

1. What is the weight limit for this tour
2. What is the age limit
3. Do you provide transfers from Queenstown?

Comments

Thank you for your question about High Country Horses. Unfortunately, the tour operator has a strict maximum weight rule of 95 kg. The age limit is strict to 7 years old and above.

Unfortunately, at the moment there is only a self-drive option to Glenorchy which is about an hour's drive from Queenstown.
