Our trek horses are seasoned veterans. Many of them have been doing these treks for more than 10 years and are accustomed to riders of all ages, levels of ability and experience. The information we ask you to supply prior to your trek is to help us match you with the right horse. For example, some horses are more sensitive to weight or need a more experienced rider. Don’t forget to give your horse lots of pats during and after the trek!

  • It was a fantastic weekend with two waimak ponies going to their first ever ode. Both behaving fantastically. And it was our student Caitlyn's first Ode on her lease pony Chesney. She did super placing 4th after dressage and 5th overall. Connie also did well to with Charlotte on board. Placing 1st after dressage and 3rd overall. Hopefully we will be able to get all the ponies out and about more now that the weather is picking up :) #Eventingnz#horseriding#chesnutponies#horsesofinstagram
