WATSON'S MOUNTAIN COUNTRY TRAIL RIDES

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 horse riding tours begin from a 1 hour horse ride 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.

Watsons Mountain Country Trail RidesHi Grant, we have a 1 hour ride available at 12.30pm Thursday and we could offer a pony lead around after this ride (approx. 2pm) for your 6 year old. Thank you for your enquiry.1 day ago

Another magnificent day here in the High Country! This afternoon we were joined by a wonderful group from Charity Adventure TV (check them out, great initiative!), who were filming a documentary. On our way back down from the jump scene featured in "The Man From Snowy River" we were greeted by a truly spectacular sunset as the golden light flooded the valley below.

Thank you guys for being such a pleasure to work with, we hope you all had a good time and all the best for the rest of your adventure, you've earned it! (5 photos)

Spring in the High Country (8 photos) ... See MoreSee Less

We hope you've all had a wonderful weekend! Here at Watson's we've had a magical few days of riding. The spring sun decided to join us as we explored the high country - Cantering through the forest, criss crossing through creeks and rivers and climbing up the peaks for a few spectacular views of the valley below. To our guests: Thank you guys for being so much fun! We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did. Here are a few screen grabs from some footage we shot for our new website over the last few days. A full set of photos will be up on the new site as soon as we go live, until then enjoy this little taste of spring in the high country.
