Love horses, love horse riding or have a dream to just try horse riding then join us on a horse trek and traverse across Rubicon Farm, a 2000 acre high country sheep farm situated in Kowai Bush, Springfield. The farm is a mixture of flat river terraces and rolling hills running alongside the magnificent Waimakariri River Canyon, with the back drop of the snow-capped Mt Torlesse. This is the perfect place for an adventurous horse trek that beginners and experienced riders will enjoy. There is spectacular scenery at every turn with ancient beach trees, native birds and over 3000 sheep.
Choose from a two or three hour guided horse trek or for the more adventurous we have full day guided treks available.
All groups are small, so you get personal care and attention from our trained professional Trek Leaders.
All of our horses at Rubicon are fully trained for beginner riders but are also fantastic for the more experienced rider allowing great opportunities for a trot or canter. We endeavour to give all riders the best riding experience to meet their own personal ability. Join us for an adventurous activity that the whole family will enjoy.
Also an extra for horse owners - we also have the options of bringing your own horse. If you are looking for a great place to ride just give us a call for more details.
