Otahuna Lodge – a Relais and Chateaux luxury lodge outside of Christchurch, New Zealand

 Horseback Riding

English-style horseback riding can be found alongside the banks of the nearby Waimakariri River. Here, guests can attain basic skills such as how to mount and dismount, hold reins in an English saddle and communicate with the horse before departing on a leisurely ride through local farms and woodlands alongside the scenic, braided riverbed.

More experienced riders will enjoy crossing the tributaries of the river and the challenge of steeper inclines with plenty of wide trails and spaces to canter or gallop.
Travel time from Otahuna Lodge: 45 minutes.
