What you'll do
You will get to meet and greet this majestic breed of horse "The Friesian" a rear breed horses in New Zealand and worldwide. Experience a carriage drive in the Canterbury countryside on an imported wagon built for a comfort, taking in the fresh air and country feel from the horse drawn wagon. This horse drawn wagon ride is approximately one to one and a half hours. We will drive from the farm to the vineyard where I will drop you off at the site of the wine tasting where you can sample wines and purchase wine if you so wish. (please note that the vineyard does not supply food and that this is just a winetasting and carriage experience) I will wait for you to return to the carriage to begin our return journey to the farm. Guests can be as hands on (helping groom the horse) or just happy to watch the procedure of un-tacking as you would like. If there are any special requests please message me to discuss them and I will be only too pleased to help.
Helen (AKA Llea-Anne)
I am a very passionate advocate for the Friesian Horses here in New Zealand and world wide. I love these horses and would love to share this unforgettable experience with those that would love it as much as I love doing it. I have been breeding and training Friesian horses for more that 15 years and driving horses before the wagon for 10 years, in competition and for leisure. This experience is unlike anything in and around the Christchurch area.
