- Location: Queenstown, Closeburn

A trek with a view! Climb high over the Moonlight Valley passing historical Gold Mining sites ( try to spot the old stone cottages among the landscape) Like going back in time to when the main mode of transport was on horseback. Multiple river crossings on the way back down the canyon with ample opportunity to go for a canter. Due to the high mountain pass this trek is only suitable for intermediate to advanced riders. This trek will leave you with a lasting impression.
For the health and wellbeing of our horses we have a strict 85kg weight limit for this trek. Staff reserve the right to weigh riders on the day of their trek, anyone found to be exceeding the weight limit will not be permitted to ride.
Riders on the McConnochies trek are expected to be able to competently control a horse without assistance, any riders who are not deemed not capable may have their trek altered to keep within the 3 hour time schedule.
