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.

My husband and I went on the 2 hour ride. We had both never ridden. I was terrified of horse riding. They were fantastic! I am definitely over my fear now, I absolutely loved it! Now I want a horse. Fantastic ride, spectacular views and great guides! Thank you so much! ... See MoreSee Less
