Pass lakes and streams as you trek through beautiful NZ countryside
Giddy-yup! I’m on horseback and setting of on an exciting horse trek from The Farmhouse through the spectacular Rotorua countryside. I pass lakes and streams and am totally awed by panoramic views of Lake Rotorua and Mount Tarawera.
I am also totally confident that I am in the best hands possible for an exhilarating horse trek through some of the best scenery New Zealand has to offer.
With over 80 mounts, The Farmhouse offers the largest horse trekking and riding holiday facility in New Zealand and all riding levels are welcome.
With horse names such as Pudding and Songbird or Swift and Surge, I was assured there are gentle mounts for the young and inexperienced as well as stronger, more confident horses for the more experienced.
My mount is a gentle horse called, suitably, Dream. They told me she was super-safe for nervous riders and so she proved to be as we ambled gently along.
The friendly, expert guys at The Farmhouse provide helpful instructions for the less experienced rider, while helmets, boots and wet weather gear (if necessary) are provided for all.
So there is no reason whatsoever not to book up a memorable trek during the crisp, cool days of winter. Believe me, after a 60, 90 or 120 minute trek, you will definitely be warmed up and exhilarated by the spectacular scenery you ride through.
So grab the reins, get in the saddle and book your horse trek holiday now!
