Silver Stream Horses

Natural horsemanship

Horse riding holiday in New Zealand

Have you been dreaming of a horse riding holiday in New Zealand? To ride up pristine valleys, along gorgeous lakes and snow capped mountains?

Silver Stream Horses is one of New Zealands premier horse holiday destinations offering a wide variety of riding options. We offer both farm based rides and overnight trips into the mountains in different areas of the Southern part of the South island of New Zealand. We can set up tailor made trips, or you can join our group trips. 


Our beach rides around Dunedin are second to none, white sand, great trails through the dunes to explore, often we can spot sea lions sunbathing, playing in the waves or in the estuary, all with reach of our farm based rides, but a beach ride can be added on to any riding holiday in the mountains as well if you return with us to the farm.


As well as just riding we also offer natural horsemanship courses suitable for all levels of experience. These can easily be added into any farm based rides.
