The best horse trek ever! Couldn’t recommend Kelly enough! Her knowledge and kind nature made the experience one we will never ever forget! We have been on the same trek 3 times before and can’t get enough of it! Horses are so well looked after and have the best personalities! Riding to the Cardrona Hotel on horseback is a memory we will never forget! Highly recommend!

Wow! My two kids (20 & 13) and I (50s) had an amazing time being guided by Kelly on Lou, Pat and Danny on the horse High Country Pub Trail. We are (were?) all total beginners, and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was a blue-bird day, and the trail was a great mix of uphill, flat and downhill. Kelly was excellent at getting us up to speed with the horses, who were all very gentle. It was also nice hearing about the local history, and the stop at the pub just adds to the experience. We went back after the ride for an excellent meal too. Highly recommend Kelly's outfit for horse trekking!

This horse trek exceeded our expectations, and is the best we have ever done. It was a fantastic experience and a memorable highlight from our 3 week holiday in cantral otago/fiordland. We were 2 adults and a 12 yr old. All beginners. The horses and our guide Kelly were fantastic. We loved the terrain, views, and opportunity to trot and canter. Highly recommended.

What a lovely horse trek through the Cardrona Valley, discovering gold mining history.
Kim ( our guide) was a bubbly, friendly and knowledgeable guide who made us all feel at ease. She ensured everyone was comfortable and confident aboard their sturdy steeds.
The Horses were well cared for and on their best behavior, our 2 girls, 11 and 13 were given the chance to trot along and did so happily.
Although having ridden before this was a real confidence builder for them.
I highly recommend The Cardrona for a Horse Trek. Will Happily go again
