We visited here in August and although it was just an overnight stay the place, the views, the horses, the stables, the accomadation were all spectacular. But the people are what makes this experience one of a kind. The family that run Bogong Horse Adventures are so so welcoming and are so generous with their time and energy. Just sitting eating with them is an adventure. So many stories they have to share and do it with such gusto and humour.
Loved the food and their ability to cater for vegetarians.
Loved the horses and the family that loves and cares for them.
Enjoy your stay. It will be an adventure into the Australian essence."

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 a clear indication of the professionalism of this family run business. Pre ride information is sought at the time of booking to ensure they have a horse suitable for you. Appropriate footwear is recommended and safety hats are provided if you don't have your own.
We also stayed on site and you can read my full review of Silver Spur Stay on tripadvisor as well. Beautiful views and wonderful overall experience...we will return.

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 have loved to stay here and enjoy a long horse ride.

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.

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...
