Welcome to 



Est. 1962

We are proud to be the longest established horse trekking company in Queenstown.


At Moonlight Stables our aim is to make your experience as personal as possible.


We are situated just a short 15/20 minute drive from central Queenstown, 5 minutes from Arrowton and 10 minutes from Queenstown Airport. 


We are open all year throughout spring, summer, autumn and winter.


We also have excellent facilities for our horses and guests.

Our rides can cater for all abilities from complete beginners, families with children, experienced riders and everyone in-between.


We ride in small groups where you do not have to follow in a line, our guides will encourage you to spread out, ride side by side with your friends or family and take pictures of the beautiful scenery. 


If you are a capable rider there is ample opportunity to pick up the pace and enjoy a trot or canter, there will be chances to head off at your desired pace and meet up with the rest of the group at the lookout points. 


We pride ourselves in having calm, kind, friendly horses.

Doonholme Farm is an 800 acre working deer and sheep farm situated in the midst of the beautiful Wakatipu basin. Along the ride you will see historic buildings, interesting landmarks, farm animals and local wildlife in their natural habitat.


We head onto the farm past the historic woolshed and original farmhouse. We ride amongst rolling farmland, ponds, rivers and hills with breathtaking views of the Kawarau river, Remarkables Mountains, Queenstown and the Wakatipu Basin.


Guests will be able to get up close to our impressive herd of Wapiti deer and hopefully the rare white fallow deer. The Wapiti are pretty special and the size of the stags will surprise those that haven’t seen these magnificent animals in close proximity.
