Went on the 3 Day Trek into the mountains. Holly was an excellent guide and the horses were as laid back and peaceful as the scenery. One of those trips that will last forever, but would love to do it all again.

I would recommend this horse trek if you enjoy amazing scenery, good horses and a really fun and talented horseman as your guide. We loved the stories and the Peel mountain views. It was a blast.

We were booked with a different operator initially but got cancelled last minutes. However we were advised to contact Bert. We were lucky that we were still able to do a half a day trek on the day & time we wanted, given it was a short notice in busy period just after Christmas before the New Year. Bert matched... More

As this was an alternative activity during our trip since the earthquake diverted our trip. Must say we enjoyed the ""find". The owners are very nice and helpful. My mentally handicapped adult son was well assisted every moment allowing me to enjoy the ride as well. My older son is an avid, expert rider and very much enjoyed the personal... More

Myself and my 9 year old daughter done this trek this was our second time ever on a horse but we were made to feel so comfortable the whole time. They are so patient and great at showing you how to control your horse before heading off. There is such a variety of terrains from going through forests, pond, river... More
