Great horse riding experience with Christian, Laura and Co. Spectacular scenery and definitely an experience to ride from Home Valley Station to El Questro. Food was great and plentiful. The hot springs we stopped at were definitely therapeutic. Tips - The days were quiet hot, so take large bottles to hold water (insulated would be even better), wear a white... More

Even the drive to the Tolmie location got the blood pumping. It was a beautiful blue-skies morning with a cold start and turning into Bunstons road we were greeted by a smooth (even) gravel road with towering trees growing right up to the side of the road. Following this for four kilometers you arrive at the property out of the... More

Absolutely fantastic experience, the entire team (including the horses of course) at Hidden Trials are amazing. We did the full day Craig's hut ride in a small group and you just have to do it ! All the equipment provided is top notch, lunch is provided and the chocolate brownies are to die for. Highly recommended and we will be... More

We three Very experienced riders enjoyed a fantastic two hour horse ride through the surrounding bush from Hidden Trails by Horseback. Gwen, our guide, was super fun, and allowed us to enjoy a ride at our level of experience & it was safe! We even got a good canter in!! We had planned to experience a Craig's Hut/Mt Sterling all...

I was expecting this ride to be decent, but what I got was very good. Brilliant landscape, interesting riding trails, nice food and good accommodation by the river. Good care of their horses. Although, it started off badly (hence the 4/5 rating). I was given a horse who had been (unfortunately) injured that morning and I notified the hosts, but... More

Lovely half day ride around the forest from Hidden Trail's base. Reliable, sure footed horses and good opportunities for trotting and cantering.

Hidden trails is right! We did the two day ride across the High Country, to the Howqua River. The ridges are high (that's why it's called the high country) & the tracks narrow, with the horses working hard to be sure-footed. Once down, we rode through stunning river crossings, saw kangaroos, parrots in the long grass, riverbanks of wild mint,... More

We went on the 7 day Bogong High Country Ride and had a fabulous time. The scenery was truly amazing. The horses were well matched to our riding skills. Don and Alan's knowledge of the country and its history was awe inspiring. Christians horsemanship and expertise ensured our safety and he even helped to try and improve our limited riding... More

Considering that none of us actually know how to ride they did a great job of getting us through and making sure we all enjoyed ourselves

Ever since the Man from Snowy River movie came out, I have wanted to see the High Country and Craig's Hut by horseback. Because I was so excited about finally getting the opportunity to do this trip, I was worried that my high expectations would not match the experience. This certainly did not eventuate! The ride was well organised, with... More
