Horseback riding in New Caledonia

Where horse is king

Whether you feel like trotting along the beach or exploring the lush inland vegetation, you will be thrilled by your New Caledonian riding experience.

The essential

An original stay

From North to South, a multitude of clubs and professionals offer to take you on guided equestrian excursions. Whether you feel like trotting along the beach or exploring the lush inland vegetation, you will be thrilled by your New Caledonian riding experience. In La Foa, around 20 km from the village, you can combine trail riding and the chance to experience daily life with the Oui Poin Tribe. You will meet friendly people and learn about ancestral kanak traditions. Elise awaits you with a warm welcome to the wild mountain country, just two hours from Noumea. A picturesque riverside setting with mountain views is your base for hikes on foot or horseback along the tribe’s customary paths. The perfect way to explore the magnificent scenery of New Caledonia’s mountain range (La Chaîne).

Another great way to enjoy New Caledonia’s horse-friendly lifestyle is a homestay on a local stockbreeding estate or ranch. Breeders are absolutely passionate about their horses, which are mainly used to herd livestock. Discover the farm life and enjoy riding through vast estates. Grab a pair of old jeans and some cowboy boots and don’t forget your Stetson! With a bit of luck, you might even get to join in a day’s cattle herding. An experience to remember!

Inescapables

Discover New Caledonia on horseback

Riding along the lagoon

On Lebris peninsula near La Foa, you can enjoy an unforgettable horseback hike which includes a delightful trot along the beach, picnicking and bathing in the nearby lagoon. At low tide, you can even ride the narrow paths though the mangroves.

A 5-star experience

In Bourail, discover the impressive and picturesque Deva Domain. Ride through splendid scenery that superposes mountainous relief and azure lagoon. And you can even combine it with a stay at the Deva Domain’s ultra-luxury Sheraton hotel and a leisurely round of golf at the hotel’s world-class golf course.

The ranch life

In Thio, discover the 3 Boucles cattle station, a true breeding farm. A river, horses, vast grasslands and charming chalets for a stay over a weekend or longer. Home-cooked dishes prepared with fresh farm produce and plenty of time to savour the gorgeous scenery and rural peace.

Something for everyone

New Caledonia’s horseback trails are not just for experienced riders. A number of clubs and ranches run trails for all levels, setting off for an hour, a day or a whole weekend. Karikaté Randonnées at Païta, just half an hour from Noumea, offers a range of loop trails over stockbreeding estates, taking in splendid scenery and a refreshing dip with the horses – a sure-fire way to create a unique bond with your four-footed friend.
