Whether you are after a long or short stay package, we have several options to suit your needs and riding goals and make your riding holiday a fantastic one. Guests are welcome to stay in one of our two-bedroom self-contained cottages on the grounds, with a private garden and view of the grass paddocks, breakfast included. For guests staying onsite, check in is on Monday at 2pm and check out Sunday morning at 10 am.
What could be better than a week's stay in the beautiful horsey province of Canterbury, New Zealand? New Zealand has produced some of the great eventers, and a riding holiday in New Zealand allows you to experience the spirit and freedom of the region at your leisure. We specialise in eventing, but also offer tuition in dressage and show jumping. Our riding programmes run from Tuesday morning to Saturday afternoon but could be extended or shortened to suit your needs - please enquire. During your stay, adding to lessons on the property, the team will take you trekking to the nearby river shore or for a breeze on the beach. There is cross country schooling at the nearby National Equestrian Centre that hosts FEI *** Competitions.
