My wife and I had a fantastic trek with the Lighthorse team. What a perfect way to spend 3-4 hours. The scenery is breathtaking. We were lucky to have spectacular weather. Teresa was an amazing guide. My wife and I are complete novice horse riders and Teresa gave us ample training and guidance to complete the trek. I feel far more confident with riding after Teresa’s guidance. Viking was a fantastic horse . I cannot recommend this company more highly.

It was an amazing ride, the staffs are very friendly and we feel so confortable and safe in all the times. Riding a horse was one of my dream. We didn’t book and just popped in there. However they prepared for just us!! Thank you so much. You guys are amazing. We really appreciate that. Kind regards Matias & keiko

A ‘must do’ horse trek! Light Horse Adventures is an enjoyable one hour scenic drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy. We were a group of riders of mixed abilities (complete beginner to experienced) and we were matched perfectly with our horses. Staff (Isla and Gemma) were super friendly, knowledgable, patient and safety conscious. Before mounting we were given the opportunity to get to know our horses and use natural horsemanship techniques. The horses were obviously well looked after and respected. The scenery was breathtaking as we made our way across farmland to the Dart river with the mountains in the background. We crossed the river several times and had plenty of opportunities to trot. I will definitely be coming back to support this fantastic business.

Absolute wonderful experience! The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, the horses are very well cared for, and it is so clear just how much the team adore their horses - it’s definitely a partnership with the horses and guests are encouraged to adopt the same mentality. The ride itself was wonderful, catered to our limited experience, and had absolutely stunning views. The horse I was with Sabby was such a wonderful companion, as was my partners horse Blaze! We had such a wonderful time and the photo package offered by the team is a must, we received some amazing photos!
