風馳駿馬覓美景 Horse Riding Vacation in Wonderland

在現今科技發展一日千里的大時代,騎馬與馬術等玩意對不少人來說僅限於電影中出現。誠然,騎乘者在騎乘過程中,須耐心體會與馬匹的溝通技巧,進而堅定但不粗暴的方式使馬匹順從騎乘者意願,培養充分的耐性與尊重生命的精神,展現出不同一般人的氣質。在遠古時期,由於馬術運動的參賽者皆穿著高尚華麗的禮服出賽,加上馬術可看性十足,往往吸引大量觀眾,因此被譽為「運動的王者」。

It is vital for riders to cultivate the communication skills to control horses with great patience and the spirit of respecting life. In ancient times, racers in equestrian competitions were praised by audience to be ‘the king of sports’ due to their gorgeous dresses and incredible performances.

新西蘭騎乘初體驗

說到新西蘭的皇后鎮,相信是不少極限運動愛好者的天堂,在這個「機索跳運動」發源地,有著超過300多種的極限運動讓人一展身手,堪稱冒險國度!在追求極致感受的同時,策馬奔馳,欣賞著沿途壯麗的風光也是人生一大樂事。

皇后鎮位於新西蘭南島奧塔哥大區的西南部,是南島的旅遊度假地。至於距離皇后鎮約一小時車程的格蘭諾基,附近被非常壯觀的群山環繞,景色變化萬千、湖光山色宛如仙境,更成為電影《魔戒》的經典拍攝場景;當地的騎馬氣氛非常盛行,亦設有不少騎術學校為遊客提供初級入門課程,令無論具經驗或從未接觸騎馬運動的愛好者皆可以盡興其中。

開始前教練會詢問是否是第一次騎馬,若是初次體驗的話整體行進的速度不會太快,比較像在漫步,不過因為地形多樣,同樣會遇到上下陡坡、狹路等,充分感受騎乘變化的樂趣。由於馬兒也跟人類一樣有脾氣有思想、有些馬兒不喜歡女生要男生、有些愛偷懶不喜歡太重、有些甚至有個性難駕馭等,教練們因為長期在這邊訓馬飼養馬、自然知道牠們每一匹的個性了。除了考慮馬兒的性子以外、另外還要看思考重量、這個人比較高大適合大馬、或是說這個人比較重需要壯馬等。約兩小時的騎馬行程,教練會帶領您走過小溪、穿過森林,尋找最美的線路,同時更會介紹極具魅力的《魔戒》電影場景、來一趟「身歷其境」。

With more than 300 extreme sports, Queenstown of New Zealand is one of the most adventurous countries in the world. In this birthplace of bungee jump, you will enjoy both the exhilarating feeling and the magnificent scenery along the way while riding a horse.

Located in the southwest of Otago Peninsula, Queenstown is a tourist resort of the island. Taking a drive of one hour from it, you arrive at the famous Glenorchy surrounded with landscape of lakes and mountains,which provides the perfect scenes for the movie Lord of the Rings. Local professional schools provide both comprehensive services for experienced riders and basic courses for beginners.

Coaches will assess if you are a fresher before the ride in order to adjust the speed. For beginners, the whole riding experience can be similar to a ramble with the delight of overcoming slopes and narrow paths. You will be notified by the coaches on how to choose horses as the animals’ temperament vary; for instance, some favor boys rather than girls, and others have an uncontrollable character. Besides, the stature of riders should be taken into consideration since strong horses are necessary for the tall. In a ride of nearly two hours, the coach will take you riding through river crossings and forests to seek for the best route. Don’t hesitate to experience the enchanting scenes of Lord of the Rings if you reach the site!



遊歷壯麗峽谷

不論任何年齡的騎馬愛好者都能從中獲得一段美妙的經歷,在風景如畫的野生山地峽谷中騎行,體驗從未有過的山林騎行冒險之旅。

除了可以飽覽壯麗景致外,騎馬也絕對是一項有益身心的運動,研究指出,騎馬40分鐘運動量足以超過打高爾夫球的36洞,而且由於騎馬時全身上下的規律震動,不僅可以強化內臟功能與筋骨,加上大量的流汗,輕易就能排出體內的毒素。同時,騎馬是一項高尚尊貴的運動,所運用不只是體力,還需要智慧、耐心、勇氣與愛心,這四者缺一不可。

Glenorchy offers great riding opportunities to everyone from complete beginners to the experienced. Enjoy the adventurous ride in the forest and take the picturesque scenery of mountains and wild canyons into your heart!

In addition to stunning views, horse-riding is definitely a physical and mental sport. Studies have pointed out that 40 minutes’ riding consumes more calories than two standard rounds (36 holes in total) in golf. Moreover,the sport is beneficial to the function of viscera as toxins are removed from the body with perspiration during the regular vibrations on horseback. It is essentially a noble exercise that requires not only physical strength, but also wisdom, patience, courage and love.



 馳騁於澳大利亞熱帶雨林

告別如詩似畫的魔戒小鎮,假如希望於騎馬的旅程中探索大自然的原始氛圍,置身澳大利亞南明巴峽谷便能樂而忘返。南明巴峽谷是一個由澳大利亞土著命名的雄峻峽谷,2007年被納入世界遺產保護名單。緊靠著春溪國家公園,這裡曾經是一個盾狀火山。千年之後,取而代之的是茂密的亞熱帶雨林。二戰期間,戰鬥機飛行員也曾在這裏進行野外求生訓練。如今,因其獨特的火山岩地貌,粗獷的原始森林,這裏已成為遠近聞名的騎馬勝地,遊客還可以沿途追蹤野生動物的蹤跡,如野生袋鼠、樹熊、野狗等等。

Farewell to Glenorchy, Numinbah Valley of Australia is another option if you wish to continue exploring the original nature. Named by aborigines, the magnificent valley next to Springbrook National Park has been on the list of UNESCO World Heritage since 2007. Used to be a site of fighter pilots’ field training during World War II, the dense subtropical rainforest nowadays is a well-known resort for horse-riding owing to its unique geomorphology of volcanic rock and rugged virgin forest. As a rider and tourist, you can even take notice of the traces of the wild animals (such as koala, wild kangaroo and etc.) along the way.


 

 


 

騎馬探索從地面到空中的多個不同層次,生長和棲息著動植物種類繁多的熱帶雨林。如果只是徒步行進,眼中所欣賞到的熱帶雨林僅僅是距離地面一米多的距離,而如果騎在馬背上,您所能欣賞到的風景就完全不同。同時,由於騎著馬探索雨林,會有翻倍的刺激體驗!但是不要擔心安全問題,專業的工作人員會在出發前為您檢查好一切安全設施,途中也一直有嚮導帶領進行熱帶雨林探險之旅,騎馬優遊於自然橋公園中2,500英畝的農莊大地,在未破壞的山地中體驗熱帶雨林及森林風光,亦會在途中經過低窪的濕地,當地養殖的甘蔗田、熱帶雨林河口等等多種地形。最棒的是,可以全家一起體驗,無論是小孩還是老人都能無憂暢玩!

Hiking in a tropical rainforest, you can observe just one meter away from the ground. Instead, riding on the horseback showcases completely distinct views and a doubling experience of excitement.Professional staff will check all the safety facilities for you before setting out, therefore it is unnecessary to worry about security issues. Riding on the 2,500 acres’ farmland in Natural Bridge Park is a perfect option for all family members to enjoy the various terrains which include low-lying wetlands, local sugarcane field and estuaries of tropical rainforest.
