We are 2 adults who did the 3 days of riding, 2 nights camping. It was the most rewarding and memorable holiday we have ever had ( and we have holidayed all over the world ). Adventurous and remote in the most enchanting mountains. The staff and Baird family were not only incredibly knowledgable and professional but welcomed us like family with the generous hospitality they showed us. The countryside was amazing and the the camping out experience was incredibly comfortable but also very traditional with swags and campfires and billy tea etc..The food was plentiful and delicious. Neither of us had ridden recently. With the amazing and thoroughly well trained horses and guidance of the staff we were in very capable hands and managed the ride well despite it being totally exhausting. Don't underestimate the effort it takes to ride 6-7 hours plus a day with few breaks except for lunch. The majority of our group were extremely exhausted at the end of this 3 day ride where we did have quite warm weather. I would say unless you are a regular and very experienced rider the 3 day riding trip is only for quite resilient and fit people as it is very challenging. We had not been told that the accommodation ( which is in progress and looks very impressive), is not yet built and we were put up at the local hotel the first and last nights where we had to organise our own dinner and a breakfast on checkout. Check this before you go. Be aware that all the mountains except for Bogong have been burnt out with fires so the landscape before the high plains is predominately burnt grey old tall trees with only a few visible old snow gums surviving- so very eerie and many old grey logs and sticks to avoid on the trails. Hot tip- take skins for under your jeans and wear a camera case on your belt for easy access while riding as otherwise you won't get many photos as there are not many stops during the day. We would recommend this if you are adventurous and fit and we will definitely return to ride another mountain. Although we live in the countryside were very sad to leave this mountain way of life behind.
