Queens Birthday Weekend at Spring Spur – All inclusive stay and ride package
We are proud to offer the perfect Queens Birthday weekend getaway. Visit Spring Spur Stay and ride one of our fabulous stock horses bred specifically for the mountain terrain and job. You will of course, be accompanied by friendly qualified staff to encourage the novice rider and oversee the more experienced. Winter is a special time at Spring Spur so rug up in an oilskin and scarf for a great canter through the mists of Moncrieffs or the Lyre Bird track, arriving back at the stables where your horse will be given his night feed while you relax by the ‘Ned Kelly’ fire in the riders lounge. Enjoy a red wine from the bar or just soak up the atmosphere with a cup of tea and a good book, while dinner is cooked. The Baird Family have been running award winning trail rides and packhorse expeditions since 1986 and have recently completed Spring Spur Stay to accommodate our riding guests. We are committed to hospitality ensuring you feel welcome and rewarded. Our Spring Spur Australian Stock Stud has been producing quality horses since 1989. All horses are trained using natural horsemanship philosophies, and are a pleasure to ride no matter how experienced you are, horses are matched to each riders ability and the horses’ horse-an-ality.
Spring Spurs’ hosted accommodation features bright spacious rooms with en-suites, quiet private corners with beautiful views and gardens. Spring Spur Stay is designed using passive solar principals, maintaining a clean bright and modern building but reflecting its High Country integrity in its design. Our guests can immerse themselves into the High Country experience at whatever level of adventure they choose returning to the comforts of Spring Spur Stay overlooking Mount Feathertop, Mount Bogong summit and surrounding mountains. Our meals are prepared and cooked using locally sourced produce and our own vegetables grown organically from heritage seeds, but most importantly cooked with passion and flair. We cater for various dietary needs including gluten free, vegan and vegetarians.
If you’re here for a full weekend of horse riding you can book a full day on the Saturday and add an extra half day on Sunday morning. An in house massage is available or at one of the spa’s in the area but bookings are essential prior to arrival. There are many other activities available in the area; bush walks, cycle paths, mountain bike tracks, snow fields and gliding clubs (seasonal) and many wineries, some that you could include on your way home.
