    Hi there,
    I live in Sydney but am really hoping I can some day soon join a Cavalcade 7-8 day ride. I have ridden horses most of my life so hopefully I am up to the challenge. Is it actually possible to hire a horse and gear? Do I need to book now for 2014? What ride would you recommend? I hope someone can help me out. Warm regards, Kristin

    1. Hi Kristin – yes to rent a horse and gear click here for some options.

      Registrations officially open on the 1st November so no panic to register. More details will be confirmed in the coming months as the Trail Bosses get the trails sorted.

      First time Cavalcaders we usually steer towards the 5 day trail of Jane Whitmore or the 7 day clover leaf trail of Tony Roderique (on his trail you can take a day off mid week and not get left behind!)

      We would expect you to do plenty of riding in the build-up so that you are fit for the trip – these are not ‘pony rides’. You will have to get off and lead your horse on some sections too…

      You wont regret it though – everyone who comes and does it just love it.

      Hope to see you next February! Terry.

    Hi there, I did hear from a friend that you already posted a list with the trails for 2013. I hope I made it on your mailing list by now (requested a couple of times) and would love to receive this list as well, thank you so much

    1. Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust Says:

      Hi Caro, we had you email with a ‘-‘ instead of a ‘.’, all fixed now so you should start getting some emails from us from now on. Sorry about that.

  6. Alice Jarvis Says:

      1. Alice Jarvis Says:

        Hi i’ve got my email changing so could you please change who you send the emails to, could you please also let me know the cost fo the riding trails. thanks

      2. Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust Says:

        Hi Alice – have added your new email to our database. Cost is about $500-$700 for the Riding trails. The Heavy wagon trail, (which many people ride on also) is closer to $200 but it is self catering/sufficient.

      Hi Angela,

      The routes to Oamaru are still in the planning stages. I will add your email to our database and keep you up-to-date as things progress.

      Costs won’t be finalised untill the full trail discription is sorted out including how many days trekking and accommodation options enroute… the likely cost will be in the ball-park of $70 – $90 per day. (Most riding trails are 6-7 days and walking trails are 3-4 days).

    Thanks and awesome event.

    1. goldfieldsinc Says:

      No worries Kat. You’re on our list.

  30. John Story Says:

    Saw reference to same on TV this morning. Will establish a few ‘positions’ on our website to get ‘you people’ exposed a bit more….for New Zealand tourism at large…with great images. I was aware, but now more aware. Look through our “Images of the Region” category in a few days time. Anyone is free to email images, but try to keep below 200KB, preferrably right down to around 50KB.
    All the best for 2010 !

    John Story.
