This was the most amazing holiday I have ever been on, and I am most certainly signing up for another ride later in the year. I went with my 65 year old mother and my sister, and we had beautiful horses, wonderful hosts, an amazing group of guests, and some of the most scenic locations you can hope to find in Australia. My compliments to the Baird family for a totally awesome experience!

What a weekend!

What a fabulous way to spend the Queens Birthday weekend but up in the high country at Bogong Horseback Adventures! The staff are fabulous and very chatty and friendly! A beautiful ride was provided, I expected none less from a fantastic business! The staff (Daisy, Will, Annika, Brendan ) were very friendly indeed! The demonstration at the start was very entertaining! A very wonderful ride and a great way to spend a day in the high country! An experience for absolutely everyone, wether you've ridden all your life or never sat in a saddle before, I'll be coming back as soon as I can!

Couldn’t ask for more

Recently my partner and I had the pleasure of going on one of their 3 hour rides + lunch. We got there half an hour early and were immediately ushered into the kitchen for a cup of tea and a chat before we got started which was a really nice way to start the day. We're total beginners at horse riding so we were a little embarrassed by our lack of skills but we got really professional and clear instruction at the start and the horses were absolutely wonderful - we felt safe and confident the whole time despite our lack of skills. After the ride we were welcomed back to the house for a home-cooked lunch and wine and we were so satisfied and relaxed we could have stayed there all day. Couldn't ask for better hosts or a more positive experience. Can't wait to go back, we're rustling up friends for a group ride later this year already :)

“A pack trip with BHA is a must for everyones bucket lists!”

A fantastic family owned and run business with incredibly passionate and friendly staff that obviously love what they do! Lin, Clay, Daisy, and Flo you all do an amazing job! And of course Steve and Kath! And the horses.... what can i say! each time i visit I come home with a new favourite! Each unique, each beautifully bred and broken at BHA and all I would trust with my life to cart me down Mt. bogong! And for that task I will always have a place for Dungee in my heart! So sure footed he ploughed on down that hill despite some challenging weather and made me feel as safe as houses! Certainly an amazing 5 day adventure i wont forget! Whether you are there for just a day ride (defiantly stay for lunch! these guys know how to cook and after a hard morning enjoying the beautiful country side you will be famished!) or there for one of their amazing pack trips you are certain to have an incredible experience of a lifetime! An adventure that should be on everyones bucket list!!.... or if your like me I think it must be on my bucket list at least 10 times! Thanks guys! Look forward to the next pack trip season :)

Awesome Adventure

If you're around Mount Beauty, Bright, Omeo. This is a MUST. At first I thought they'll just take us around their backyard for 100-200m. I have never been so wrong. This is so great, we still talk about this and reminisce about the memories on this day! My favorite was when we crossed the river. Sadly I can't remember my horse's name but I know it had a "butt" in it's name.
