We have covered the most frequently asked questions. If you would like to know anything else, please email or phone us.

What should I wear?
Please wear long pants and closed in shoes e.g. Sandshoes/sport-shoes/boot (with no heel, etc). This is most important.

Do you provide helmets?
Yes, we have helmets in all sizes and these are compulsory to wear

Should I bring my camera?
Definitely! The scenery is amazing and we stop for a quick photo session.

Do you provide transport?
We can provide transport from all Lake Tekapo accommodation. Please let us know where you will be staying when you book.

I have never ridden before, does this matter?
Our horses are very quiet so you will be perfectly safe. We provide a demonstration before you get on your horse. We take care to match the horse with your ability.

Do you do shorter rides for small children?
We can offer 1/2 hour rides for smaller children. These can be them riding by themselves, attached to the guide, or just led by the guide around the immediate area.
