This was truly one of the best experiences I have ever had on a horse, and I've had a lot of good ones (owning my own pony)! While researching which stable to ride with during my short stay in Queenstown last week, I came upon Moonlight Stables. I had never heard of it before, but after checking out their website... More

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
