We had an awesome time with Flo. She's been a great guide and the track we take was also gorgeous! The horses are beautiful and taken care well. Definitely coming back when we are in Queenstown again!

Unique way to see the country

Lived here five years and that was still breathtaking. The horses and staff were extremely professional and loved riding Munster. Thanks Fleur!

Disappointing

I was really looking forward to this experience but my horse was very jumpy and got quite scared along the trek at things causing me to almost fall off. I felt quite on edge the whole trek and by the end I just wanted to get off. The instructor made it out like it was my fault that the horse wasn’t listening to any instruction so that was disappointing considering I had never ridden a horse before. Probably would never do it again.
