The Men and Women from Snowy River

Horse riding is big in this part of the Snowy world, unsurprising when you consider it’s the home of ‘The Man from Snowy River’. Guided treks through the mountains, lasting from two hours to two days or more, are a must for horse-fans.

Commercial horse treks through the Snowy Mountains date back to the 1940s. Nowadays, most start with a hearty campfire breakfast, then you saddle up and explore undoubtedly some of Australia’s most picturesque, inspiring and challenging countryside. At the end of the day, another campfire and wonderful bush meal awaits.

Both novices and expert riders should find something to suit them. Check out these local operators for lessons and horse riding information.
