Due to injury recovery, only my adult son( who trains in Natural Horsemanship in Europe) experienced the rides, but I did stand in on the full preparation one day, noting the care in which they selected horses and tack for each rider and their ability, the lengthy educative demonstration pre ride about how to treat and ride their horses give...

We had gone on this adventure web some family friends. The owners and family were very friendly and had welcomed us warmly. Our ride was good although besides one of our horses that didn't want to canter. I was on Joker and he was very well trained and obedient and only sometimes did he not do the right thing. Would...

Friendly family from the moment you park your car. The horses are well trained and lovely to ride. Great for beginners and for anyone who know how to ride a horse. The views are amazing with mountains and lakes. Thanks, Sarah & Lindsay

The Mt Fainter pack trip adventure starts the time you step foot on Spring Spur, great location, fantastic facility and the vision splendid Baird Family. No matter your level of horsemanship, or camping experience everything is carefully catered for, awesome horses, amazing camps and great people. What more could you ask for. Thanks all... Cheers, Mark

This is the best trail ride I have ever been to. Since having my own horse when I was younger I would consider myself an experienced rider. However, for the last 15 years I have only had the chance to be on a horse 2-3 times a year on trail rides across Victoria. This was not just another trail ride... More

Will was their guide and he did a great job with my three boys and my wife. My youngest is only 7 and Will was very patient and led his horse the whole way. Well run business in a beautiful location.

Awesome horses matched to your riding level, and great hospitality at the lodge and at camp. There's not a thing that's lacking with this warm and fantastic outfit, and you get to venture up to the high plains with confidence. Our five-day pack trip to Mt Fainter was an ideal kid-free adventure for us (and the first since our eldest... More

I highly recommend Bogong Horseback Adventures! I had a wonderful horse, Pickles, perfectly matched to my abilities (which are limited as I've only started riding in the last 12 months) and I loved the bond I had with him. The scenery is beautiful, the food was delicious,the staff are fabulous and the horses are just amazing! Oh and the accommodation... More
