Welcome to Peel Forest Horse Trekking

This is your opportunity to experience life before the car and enter a relaxed age, trekking through some of the most gorgeous countryside in South Canterbury.

all horse-riding levels catered for

We have horses suitable for all age groups and all levels of experience. Our treks are tailor-made for each individual; we do not need a certain number before heading out.


incredible views and natural landscapes

During your trek, you will experience breathtaking views of the mountains, the Rangitata River and the Canterbury Plains.

We are located in Peel Forest which is one of the best-kept secrets of South Canterbury.

The small, sparsely inhabited settlement is an oasis of beauty and tranquillity set amid the dense virgin bush of Peel Forest Park, on the south bank of the Rangitata River.

We are also the owners and operators of Peel Forest Lodge and Peel Forest Safaris.
