Horses and the High Country

This picture is just a reminder of what Bogong Horseback Adventures is all about – Great horses and the Beautiful High Country. Mind you we don’t ask everyone to take on the the challenges that Fletch and Bundara are revelling in here. 

As grandpa said, you never stop learning

Lin with Stringer

The staff and Baird family recently had the great good fortune to spend a weekend at the beautiful heritage homestead “Mona” in Braidwood NSW attending a training clinic conducted by Bianca Gillanders.

With a real mixed bag of horses including Rose’s Friesian stallion “Isador”, ASH stallion “Moroka”, a couple of kids ponies, a rescued race horse and a prima donna QH mare, the yard was packed with action.

Presented as an all levels clinic, everyone’s skills were tested and advanced over a couple on intense days. By sunday night the horses were all a little more balanced and tuned, the riders more confident and looking forward to more.

Bianca has now just completed her campaign in the 2014 Equitana “Way of the Horse” and we congratulate her on a fantastic achievement at gaining equal second place.

Check out a range of clinics offered by Bogong Horseback Adventures at Spring Spur, including a fantastic 5 day High Country travelling clinic departing December 5th 2014.
