Take the reigns and enjoy a private picturesque horse ride through the stunning backcountry, not far from Christchurch city. Meander along woodland areas and verdant grasslands, and cross the clear blue waters of the Waimakariri River, with gorgeous scenery on offer in all seasons.
Gallivant through breathtaking scenery on horseback during this private two-hour horse trail just 20 minutes north of Christchurch. Once settled on your horse, you'll follow your guide out to the backcountry and ride along a diverse range of terrain, including luscious woodland areas and open green spaces. You'll then head along the riverbed before crossing the cool, blue waters of the Waimakariri River, often the highlight of the ride for many. Photo opportunities are aplenty during the ride, with a gorgeous backdrop on offer in all seasons, including snow-peaked mountains in the winter. Your riding ability sets the tone for the ride, and with just you and your instructor along for the ride, you will get to dictate the pace.
If the provider feels that the weather will compromise the safety of the trek, they will contact you and reschedule.
Please wear comfortable long trousers (shorts and three-quarter pants are not recommended), sturdy covered in shoes and other clothing suitable for the conditions.
All participants are required to arrive 30minutes prior to departure time to allow for paper work, helmet fitting and a safety demonstration. Late arrivals may compromise the safety of the ride and therefore may be excluded.
This experience takes place in Belfast, New Zealand.
RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
