Buckle Up are the best in the business, outstanding hospitality, beautiful country , knowledgeable and professional staff, amazing support crew to help guests .
The horses are loved and cared for impeccably checked over thoroughly morning and evening , and if you want to learn about the High Country , history of the area and horses Paul and Shelly and the crew are so generous with their time and knowledge. Every night our camp was set up and ready with a fire and beautiful food on the go and then packed up for us in the morning.
My third trip with Buckle Up and totally going back for more joy and laughs.

Wonnangatta Ride Jan 22 Ride of a lifetime I'm sooo privileged to have experienced this ride with Paul & Shelly and their amazing team. Their knowledge of the High Country comes from generations of family - truly unique. You won't find a better mob on these mountains!

WHAT A RIDE! Off grid with Paul & Shelly and their incredible team would have to be the best week spent. Spoiled with experience & led through the most picturesque countryside imaginable with confidence allowed me to leave the "system" behind.

The love and care for their horses is obvious as they cary you through bush and river crossings with "sure footedness". Each horse with their beautiful nature even know their name and loved to be spoken to. Amazing and divine.

I took a breather from horse back to extend my journey with the men towing the camp trailers in 4WD, WOWZA, with constant communication with each other they know their wheels...Yet another highlight. Hats off!

As the riders turn their last bend of the day the camp is set. Tents up, seats out, camp fire lit with billy ready for a cuppa or eski for a cold one. Healthy bush tucker is served up with love to then finish with a great story around the camp fire.

What a success story - thank you Paul & Shelly for providing an experience of a lifetime.
See you again soon.

What an absolutely fantastic week!!! Amazing, fit and loved bush horses, exceptionally patient and kind staff team and mind-blowing access to parts of this stunning country that are simply second to none when seen from the top of a horse. So many great memories and a bunch of new friends ... Looking forward to our planning for that winery ride with you all next year. Much gratitude to Paul & Shelly who always deliver a safe and fun high country experience.

After a 4 year break (mainly due to Covid) back at my favourite high country riding destination with Paul, Shelly and the rest of the gang. 6 day Craigs Hut ride, great food, great company, great riding, great horses, fantastic scenery. Love cantering through the bush on sure footed lovely horses. Small group riding experience. If you are a horse person - don't miss it you will be sorry!

This year, my sister and I have just come back from a 6 day Victorian High Country Man from Snowy River Horse Ride 2021. This was our 6th ride with Buckle Up Bush-rides, we originally found out about this amazing family business from word of mouth and we haven't looked back. Buckle up have amazing horses, I rode Sparky this year, an absolute pleasure to ride. I can't thank Buckle-up enough for giving me the opportunity and entrusting me to ride this beautiful horse. All their horses are fantastic, each have their own personality and are beautiful kept and loved members of the Buckle-up family. If you haven't ridden with this amazing family business than put it on your bucket list. Even though we have done this ride 5 times it is different every time, the scenery is amazing, I guarantee you will not be disappointed, they cater for all levels of riders. We look forward to riding again in 2022.

Really really worth it! A friend of mine recommended them and she was so right. All staff are very attentive to the needs of their clients and to their horses (very good natured horses), food is excellent (they have a very good cook Kaye who does home made dinners, breakfasts, cakes... everything is delicious), the scenery is wonderful. Last time I rode a horse (prior to this week end) was at least 15 years ago... I will definitely go again, for longer!

Just got back from a weekend bush ride. I’ve been going to Buckle Up Bushrides for years, and for a good reason: they are fantastic!! The horses are in really good condition and well looked after. As an experienced rider, I am well catered for. The horses are pleasure to ride – they are forward, responsive and bullet-proof. The trails we ride on are great, and there are lots of opportunities to canter (if you want to). The scenery is amazing. Shelly, Paul and all the staff make you feel so welcome visiting them. They genuinely want to spend time with you. It’s a great weekend away, and I couldn’t recommend this place more highly.
