Waimak River Riding Centre (previously Waimak River Horse Treks and Waimak River Adventures) was established by Erika and Stan McStay in February 2001. As tourism in New Zealand, and specifically Christchurch, has grown and changed, so too has our business. We have now combined our horse trekking, riding school, holiday programs and leasing into one business, Waimak River Riding Centre.
Our name has changed but our dedication to providing a safe and enjoyable horse riding experience has not. Our experienced horses, guides and instructors work together to ensure the best environment for learning and fun.
Our facility is located alongside the Wamakariri (Waimak) River on the outskirts of Christchurch New Zealand. Just 15 minutes drive from the central city, our location is not only convenient but also surrounded by the most beautiful rural and river scenery that is typical of Canterbury.
