Company profile: Alpine Horses Safaris is owned and operated by Lawrie and Jenny O'Carroll at their base Waitohi Downs, Hawarden, North Canterbury. On our longer rides, Lawrie, Jenny and our guide Yvonne will be riding with you. Born and bred on a hill country property, Lawrie was a high country musterer for sixteen years, before returning back home to Waitohi Downs. He has worked on just about every backcountry station that our safaris travel through. You will therefore get first hand intimate knowledge of all these stations.

The safaris travel through native bush as well as through rugged alpine country, crossing rivers and high mountain passes as well following old stock tracks made by the early pioneers. All depends which rides our guests choose.
About the horses: We are the only horse trekking operation in New Zealand who breed all our own horses, Clydesdale / Thoroughbred cross resulting in a purpose bred horse, big, strong and free moving suitable for the novice up to experienced rider.
