We booked a morning ride before too hot or too many riders. Jesse and Rosie took the time with the 7 or so people for the morning slot. My daughters and I have ridden quite a bit - they gave us very responsive horses with sweet temperments. They paid the same heed to riders that were having their first ride... More

I ride with Moonlight every time I am in Queenstown which is generally 2-3x per year. The guides are fantastic and ensure that everyone has a enjoyable ride regardless of skill level. Plus you get to enjoy breathtaking scenery with lots of photo opps. See you again next time!!

I will be upfront and admit that I have never been a horse riding lover - but I am now converted. Our family had the most amazing time. My children, 9 and 13 had never ridden before. We had booked the trip as a birthday present for my daughter, and I am so glad we did. The horses were all... More

You know how most trail riding horses just follow everyone else? They just do exactly what the horse in front of them is doing, which is either extremely boring or nerve-wracking, depending on what the horse in front is doing. Well Moonlight Stables was AWESOME. The whole ride was on trails wide enough for 2-3 horses to walk side by... More

This was definitely one of our highlights during our trip to New Zealand! The guide chose our horses very carefully according to our prior experience with horses. The tour included just the two of us, so we got the chance to talk to the guide but also to develop our skills. The ride around the huge farm included stunning views... More

Four of us had the pleasure of riding at Moonlight stables. Janice picked us up and is so friendly. The horses are extremely well behaved and well looked after. Jen and Rosie were our guides and it is obvious they love the horses and love their job. Everyone received the perfect horse for their riding ability, and being that for... More

Booked a 90 minute ride at Moonlight Stables to celebrate my birthday. Could not have been more pleased. Complimentary transport from our accomodations to the stables. The horses were obviously well cared for and the staff took great pains to match the horses to the riders. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking and the two young women who served as our... More

If you enjoy horse riding on holidays you won't want to miss Moonlight Stables. As a former owner and trainer of horses I have found many disappointing stables. This was clearly a different and lovely experience. I was put on big standardbred Stevo, for experienced riders He tried a few things then settled in to give me a marvelous ride... More

We are a family of 6 with 4 girls who love to ride. While in Queenstown we did 3 different rides with 3 seperate companies. There was no comparison. This was definitely the best by far. The horses are extremely well behaved and well looked after. The staff are friendly and it is obvious they love the horses and love... More

I had so much fun riding a beautiful white horse called Willow, everybody is very friendly and the scenery is beautiful. We even got to take a picture on the horse and there was no extra charge. It was slightly drizzling when I started the ride but coats were provided and I didn't get wet or cold. All abilities were... More
