Blackbird Valley Western Pleasure Horse
Trekking is located in the Upper Moutere area of Nelson,
New Zealand. We offer farm rides of one or more hours. We
ride on three different working farms, over gently rolling
hills, along country roads or, depending on the season,
in the local forestry. All rides feature stunning views
of the surrounding countryside, Mount Arthur, The Western
Ranges and Tasman Bay.
We cater to all levels of experience in small groups of up
to five riders. Basic safety and riding instruction starts
each ride. You will ride in comfortable, secure, all leather
Western saddles and safety helmets are provided. We suggest
long pants for riding, a windbreaker or sweatshirt is good
to have for the breezy tops, and sturdy footwear is a must.
Need a relaxing break from your daily routine, but don't
have a lot of time? Try an outing with a few friends for
a relaxing experience with our quiet horses. Find out why
horse riding is known the world 'round as a therapeutic
release from your busy life.
Used to have a horse of your own as a kid and thinking
about it again? One-to-one lessons in basic safe horsemanship
are available for the adult returning to riding. We will
get you safely back in the saddle and disclose all those
realities of horse ownership that your parents took care
of or helped you through last time. Small children can
learn safe horsemanship with us.
We are are currently closed for the season and will reopen in the spring.
