  1. 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

    • 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.

    If anyone knows where i could go mustering or reccommend somewhere to go trecking. I am an experianced rider who does a lot of long distance trecking in the Uk and would love to explore the open country here ALOT more!!! Any help would be hugely appreciated.


  14. hi i am keen to do the 2011 cavalcade and am wanting to get information regarding the various stages and costs etc

    • 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).

  15. i would like to get information re the 2011 cavalcade as would like to participate in it My friend and I would like to ride it as we have our own horses how do we go about being included in this calvalcade

  16. I got a photo from arcphotos at cavalcade and was charged $7 for postage the photo came today with a 50cent stamp on it Im pissed off at these robbers to say the least, what do you all think?

  17. Hi.
    Congratulations on another successful cavalcade!
    Roberta – I hope that you enjoy your well earned rest. Good luck to you Terry for the future years ahead.
    Are you able to tell me the dates for the 2011 cavalcade going to Oamaru?

  18. Hi!

    Just saw an item on TV about the finish of this year’s Cavalcade in Wanaka. Would love to be a part of a future event. Could you please add me to the mailing list.
    Thanks and awesome event.

  19. 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.

  20. Please coiuld you include me on your mailing list, and the cost and availability of parking site for NZMCA member number 22097, regards Frank(jok), great presentation, bsags of information. Thanks.
