Program 2007-2008 Aug 2007
The dates are set, the packsaddles ready to come out of their winter storage, our butcher has his smokehouse fired up, the vegetable garden is getting prepared, as all falls in place for the coming season of packhorse adventures into our wonderful backyard, the peaks and plains of the Victorian High Country.
The program is a continuation of the success of the past few seasons, with a mix of straight out adventure rides and a few “mobile clinics” on natural horsemanship and bush riding and camping skills. Both programs offer similar experiences in the same spectacular landscape.
The adventures focusing on our traditional packhorse journeys, travelling the High Country in a time honoured fashion, combining great food, fantastic horses, friendly staff and memorable times. We have Mount Bogong rides and Mount Fainter rides, both offering different but rewarding riding country. On the Fainter side you can expect traditional huts and yards, sweeping open high plains and often encounters with brumbies. The Bogong rides offer spectacular landscapes, rugged remote tracks and soaring ridges and spurs.
The Natural Horsemanship rides include the added dimension of having master horseman Wayne Banney on the ride, available to you to advise and teach you on the finer points of your riding and the behaviour of your horse. Offered in a true working environment, these clinics can put up a few challenges not usually experienced in a “yard” environment.
To book on one of these rides you need to contact our office and check on availability. You can then secure your booking with a $300 deposit. Numbers on the tours are limited, and some dates book out early.
