Review of: Cardrona High Country Pub Trail Horse Riding Trek

The most amazing time! My partner and I are on our honeymoon and I haven’t ridden for many years since living in Auckland, my partner is a beginner and we absolutely loved it! Taking in the beautiful sights, learning about the history and enjoying the amazing day on horse back. Our guides were absolutely fabulous and so chill, making everyone relaxed and feel at ease. I honestly could not recommend this trek more! Loved it loved it loved it! Planning on going back when there’s snow on the mountains 😉
