Defender Cross Country Experience

The best way to really get a feel for a vehicle is to experience it in your element.

We’re thrilled to invite you to embark on an exhilarating journey and experience the full capabilities of the latest Defender, in an environment you’re likely familiar with. Taking control in the driver’s seat, you’ll tackle the equestrian country course under the guided expertise of professional instructors who will talk you through how to navigate undulating terrain, boggy water ponds, drops, and more. This exclusive opportunity is free-of-cost, however bookings are essential as spots are limited.

The Defender at Archibalds: unbridled luxury.

We provide vehicles that seamlessly blend rugged capability with refined luxury—perfectly aligning with the needs of equestrians. Trusted by riders, coaches, and enthusiasts alike, the Defender has been a reliable companion in navigating a myriad of challenging terrains. From sprawling cross-country courses to bogged-down paddocks, it’s the ideal option for safely transporting both horses and owners across New Zealand.

“The new one? It is at least equally capable off-road (and even more so in some respects) and almost as good as a Range Rover on-road. Combine that seemingly impossible blend of qualities with a fantastic looking package inside and out and you have a vehicle that is literally like no other on sale in New Zealand today.

Yeah, it really is that good”
