Mackenzie Alpine Horse Trekking is owned and operated by Sarah Simpson. Sarah lives on Balmoral Station, a 10,000-hectare high country Merino, deer, and cattle station run by her husband Sam. This is where the Horse trekking is fortunate enough to be based. She adores showing off this spectacular landscape and it's breathtaking views to those who visit.

Sarah has ridden horses for over 20 years and has successfully competed to a high level in eventing and show jumping, she considers herself extremely lucky to be able to combine her passion for horses with her passion for this amazing area that we trek across.
