"Being a Kiwi I've done a few horse treks around our beautiful country, but this has to be the BEST yet. With stunning scenery, good natured horses, and a friendly guide (Ginny), the two-hour trek I did around the MacKenzie country will stick with me forever. It topped off my week-long South Island sojourn and we were so lucky with stunning weather which enhanced the colours of Lake Tekapo and the mountainous terrain. This horse trek is a must-do and suits riders of all abilities! I will definitely be back!"
