With rising temperatures over these glorious summer months, we were finding it increasingly hard to offer a full day ride which up to now, has been very popular.
A cooling river trek was the answer
With summer temperatures reaching 35 degrees the afternoons were becoming too hot to ride. So we invented a long half hour walk in the river with the horses having a great paddle and then bare back swimming them in the river followed by a siesta or swimming in the late afternoon. This has been so popular over these sweltering weeks that we even had people starting to request these bespoke river treks. So we decided to add it into our range of treks on offer – and its going down a storm!
Suitable for both novice and experienced horse riders alike, this is a wonderful way to enjoy your trek, and make the most of our beautiful surroundings here in our beautiful Baton Valley in the Nelson region.
Riding in moon shadows was the highlight of our visit to Baton Run Horse Treks!
The overnight trekkers can then saddle up at dusk and experience a full moon or sunset ride in the cool of the evening . Some New Zealand trekkers who came to ride with Baton Run for 5 days said that riding in moon shadows was the highlight of their visit to Baton Run Horse Treks.
