Experience the beauty and history of the Victorian High Country on horseback.

Michael and Sally Watson welcome you to a high country adventure experience. Our trail rides range from 1 – 3 hour Short Rides through to a 2 Day luxury horse ride and a 5 Day Man from Snowy River and Heritage horse ride. We are open all year round and our horse riding tours are 3 hours driving time north east of Melbourne near the township of Mansfield. We run Our Rides 7 days a week through all seasons, be it in the warmth of an oilskin coat in the cool weather or enjoying relief from the heat in a high country summer.

This is your first step to experiencing the beauty and history of the Victorian High Country on horseback.

Two complete novices and one 'stagnant' rider at the end of the 3D/3N ride. Thanks for a brilliant time - everything was perfect (the lack of phone reception was great - allowed me to talk to my kids again). Thanks to Jackson for the food (delicious), Sally and Michael for their hospitality, Michael, Becky, Jess and Beiman (hope that's spelt right) for their guidance and advise on the ride. We will definitely be back..... The accommodation was great and Ian the host most welcoming too. ... See MoreSee Less
