Trek through the Canterbury Plains and Rangitata River

Get ‘back to basics’ and discover New Zealand by horseback. Located 90 minutes drive from Christchurch City in Peel Forest. Here, you will find vast farm landscapes and native forests with rich and abundant fauna and flora. Actually, 36% of New Zealand’s ferns can be found in this area.

Your hosts and guides, Bert and Pennie own and operate a lodge, near the township of Peel Forest. They both have a passion for horse trekking and hunting. Both of which you can do from their property. A place that allows you to experience the real essence of New Zealand.

A local experience with Bert

During your horse trek, Bert will be your guide. He has a huge passion for horses and is completely in his element sitting on the back of a horse, telling stories. And he knows the area like the back of his hand. Bert cannot wait to share his special part of the world with you.

The trek will be tailored to suit your wishes and riding level. After a safety briefing, you will head towards Rangitata River and explore the vast fields with mountain views as your backdrop. Bert and Pennie own a range of horses and ponies to suit all riding levels.
