Horse riding is a must do experience when visiting the Snowy Mountains.
The heritage of Australia’s high plains and valleys are indelibly linked to The Man from Snowy River and its’ fabled horse riding exploits. Our history is covered with stories and adventures just waiting to be shared by local horse riding experts, many with family roots dating back well over 100 years.
Commercial horse treks through the Snowy Mountains date back to the 1940s. Now-days, most start with a hearty campfire breakfast, then saddle up and explore undoubtedly some of Australia’s most picturesque, inspiring and challenging countryside. At the end of the day, another campfire and wonderful bush meal awaits, the ideal setting to regale the day’s conquests.
Revel in the thrill of riding in Australia’s high country with family, friends and colleagues. Guided treks through the Snowy Mountains can be enjoyed by all ages and ability levels. Treks can last just a few hours on easy going trails up to two days or more with wilderness rides in the far-reaches of the Kosciuszko National Park.
There’s also a world class equestrian facility with events and activities throughout the year including Equine Education, trail rides, lessons clinics and camps for both adults and children.
Novices, experts and everyone in between will find a horse riding experience in the Snowy Mountains that will leave a life-time full of memories.
