Horse trekking rides on the trails of Te Anau, New Zealand.
Come and ride with us at Westray Farm Horse Treks. We are located in the beautiful lakeside township of Te Anau nestled within the world renowned Fiordland National Park.
Come and ride with us and enjoy the best views that our beautiful area of Te Anau, New Zealand has to offer. Ride over our farmland and be greeted by our other friendly horses and foals roaming free.
Our horse riding tours start off from the stable yard working our way through our fields of sheep and cattle. We ride to a high point of the Te Anau basin to earn the panoramic 360 degree view of the spectacular mountain ranges and sparkling waters of Lake Te Anau.
As we are located just 5km from the Te Anau township, you spend your time with the horses rather than getting to our stables.
We have horses to suit all levels of riders confidence. Beginners and people with no previous experience are welcome – our horses are calm and tranquil and will look after you.
For the more experienced riders we have horses with a bit more spirit so we can match a horse to you so you have fun too.
We can cater for different levels within the group so if someone in the group has had no previous experience but you want to canter on the ride we allow for both of you to get the most from your ride. This needs to be arranged in advance so please tell us at your time of booking.
Our client to guide ratio depends on the experience of the riders. For beginners we have a client to guide ratio of at least 1 guide to 4 beginner riders for maximum safety and comfort.
