Lord of the Rings Day

Today, we spent the entire day on 2 different rides in the area where Lord of the Rings was filmed.  We even rode horses that were used in the film!  We took a bus from Queenstown to Glenorchy (about 45 minutes) and from there went on the Dart Stable's bus into remote areas. In the morning we took "The River Wild" ride, and in the afternoon we took "The Ride of the Rings".  In the morning, we got on the horses here.
Crossing the Rees River.
Bart on Trevor ( a Lord of the Rings horse) and Cindy on Sterling (2004 Race Day winner)
Afternoon horses Sully (also a movie star) and Bob.
Pretty spectacular scenery.
