Rubicon Valley Horse Treks: 2 Hour Rivertrail Ride

Rubicon Valley Horse Treks is your pathway to the spectacular foothills and Mountains of Canterbury and only 50 minutes from Christchurch city. Join us on a trek and traverse across Rubicon Farm, a 2000 acre high country sheep farm situated in Kowai Bush, Springfield.

The 2 Hour River Trail

See the spectacular mountain views of the Torlesse basin as you trek through the valley to the Otarama lookout point over the magnificent snow fed Waimakariri Canyon whilst riding through our high country farm.  Stop for refreshments and fantastic photo opportunities overlooking the Canyon before we ride down the terraces, following the musterers trail through the farmland.  This ride is suitable for all ages, riding abilities and fitness but caters also for the more experienced riders with plenty of opportunities for some faster paced riding.
