Horsemanship for Kids


Bogong Horseback Adventures will soon be offering kids lessons in horsemanship and riding!
These small group lessons will be focused on fun and confidence-building as well as skill development. Covering all aspects of horses, their care, and riding. These lessons are aimed at developing well rounded and sensitive horse-people using the principles of natural horsemanship.

With over 30 years in operation we can offer a great opportunity for anyone interested in horses to deepen their understanding and knowledge of these wonderful animals in a safe and positive environment. Breeding and training our horses means we are able to match your child with a horse to suit their personality and skill level.

We are looking for expressions of interest to gauge demand and structure for these lessons. If you are interested please contact us via email info@bogonghorse.com.au with the following information:
– number of interested persons
– Ages
– Previous experience
– Available afternoons during the week

Mana is waiting patiently for the morning action to begin.

After such a busy June we have to get used to the quiet that is COVID lockdowns again. The farm finds a new, slower rhythm and the horses play in the paddock with their extra energy.
All the little jobs that get put on hold creep into the limelight and we cherish each booking that comes our way.

We are still open for rides on weekends and it’s really a lovely time for locals to enjoy their own back yard! The weather is perfect and the horses are waiting for you.

Support local and have fun while you’re at it! Horse riding is a great way to socialise at this time as your horse acts as your natural social distancing enforcer.

Have a look at our scheduled rides on www.springspur.com.au or call us to create a private group booking.

Steve circa 1994
Together with a team of packhorses, Steve and crew supplied the building materials for the extension of Cleve Cole hut on Mount Bogong.
In one day they were able to carry 1.5ton of building sand, 1ton of cement (in 40kg bags, packed three to a horse), and enough 1.8m lining boards for the bunk room.

To accommodate the height of the lining boards pictured, the pack bags were lowered to stirrup level using extension chains and crossed over the horses back. A route free from overhanging branches was carefully thought out and all horses carried their loads safely and comfortably.

Cleve Cole hut remains a must-visit on a hike to Mount Bogong and offers comfortable lodgings for club members and emergency shelter for park users.
Next time you visit have a think about how it was built!

Bogong Horseback Adventures is still proudly using traditional packhorse travel to provide unique tours into the Alpine national park. Have a look at our website www.springspur.com.au for more information.
