Horse Riding at Terrace Downs Resort
Lessons and treks in the stunning Rakaia Gorge area can be arranged through Terrace Downs Resort. The service is available for house guests or the public.
Bookings are essential - please inquire at the Terrace Downs Resort Reception or phone +64 (03) 318 6943.
Our kind-natured horses can take you over farmland, though tussock country and out to the Rakaia Gorge from where you have outstanding views of rugged, majestic mountains and the opal coloured waters of the Rakaia River.
Treks can be tailored to suit your ability, budget and time. Generally our treks are for a maximum of 6 people, but larger groups can be catered for.
