We are in the final stages of our transition to a more diverse stable (excuse the pun) of High Country horse experiences. For those that have travelled with us before you may recall our property is called Spring Spur, and the Spring Spur Stables will remain the base for the renowned packhorse expeditions offered by Bogong Horseback Adventures. Our commitment to experiences that continue the long traditions of horses in the High Country is as strong as ever, enhanced by the generational change that has reinvigorated this family business.
Complimenting the horse riding experience we have also created Spring Spur Stay, our purpose built on farm accommodation, your “country home away from home”. Nestled in the homestead gardens the new riders lounge and rooms offer comfort and a chance to immerse yourself in the life of a working horse property.
Guests booked on our packhorse tours this season will be offered accommodation before and after the ride, at no extra cost, just great value.
Over the next few months we will introduce opportunities to join one of our weekend riding package, perhaps a clinic in aspects of horsemanship or a group getaway weekend filled with horses, fun and lounging about the lounge, the wood fired oven, the coach builder’s bar and the stunning landscape of the Kiewa Valley and surrounding mountains.
We haven’t forgotten our foundations and the lounge will be a keeping place for artifacts and stories from the High Country, while we continue to breed our future working stock based on our long established Australian Stockhorse bloodlines.
As a reflection on our origins, Kath recalls a time, below, when we had just started out, and the Condamine Bell rang true.
