Lost at E Minor

Trotting across New Zealand

THERE'S no finer way to experience the pristine New Zealand countryside than riding horses at Rangihau Ranch, in the Coromandel.

While the Lost At E Minor team were in New Zealand recently, we enjoyed a morning riding the horses at Rangihau.

Tessa, the owner, met us with a characteristically warm Kiwi welcome and took us to ride the original supply trail through the Coromandel ranges.

With a laid-back style Tessa helped us with helmets and gauged our riding experience (ranging from little to none) before helping us on their beautiful horses.

We followed Tessa on the trail past kiwi-fruit groves, manuka bush in flower, pine plantations and eventually to the peak of the ridge on their property.

From their, the view unfolded. We left Rangihau thrilled by the sheer beauty of New Zealand, witnessed up-front, on horse back.
