Mount Bogong

Cold wet day yesterday camped at Cleve Cole hut. Back on my horse and the sun is out, still cold and windy. Beautiful weather of the high country! Currently holding my hat on as we cross Mount Bogong. Lin

True to our origins

Bambi-posterWhen we printed our first colour brochure in the early 90’s, our designer Bambi came up with this concept of our horses traversing the map of the High Plains. The montage suggested a sense of adventure, and our expeditions today continue that tradition of adventure and respecting the heritage and culture of the High Country horse.
