LAKE HAWEA & HUNTER RIVER RIDE

New Zealand

Signature Travel & Lifestyle - - Horses -

As we rode from the Hunter Val­ley Sta­tion to Din­gle­burn Sta­tion along the shores of Lake Hawea, our heads were spin­ning at the achingly beau­ti­ful land­scapes we passed. From trotting through na­tive beech forests, to me­an­der­ing through ex­pan­sive val­leys shad­owed by snow-capped moun­tains, to cross­ing translu­cent rivers, we felt a mil­lion miles from the civilised world. It was just us, our horses and our fellow rid­ers dis­cov­er­ing the pris­tine, wild coun­try of New Zealand. It goes with­out say­ing that there is a unique priv­i­lege in view­ing the re­mote, end-of-the­world farm­ing high coun­try in New Zealand’s pic­turesque South Is­land from the back of a moun­tain-bred sta­tion horse.
