Season 2010-2011 Jun 2010
The season of 2010 -2011 brings some exciting new rides.
The New Year’s Eve ride leaves from the stables and winds its way into the West Kiewa for the first nights camp on the banks of the West Kiewa river. New Year’s Eve will be spent in the stunning Swindlers Creek hidden in a snow gum filled valley. It was spared from the fires in 2003 and 2006, and is one of our favorite camps. After a sleep-in we will climb Paling Spur to Young’s Tops – home of the Brumbies – where we will set up camp at Young’s Hut. On the final day we head out to find the Brumbies and enjoy a canter across the high plains through Pretty valley. Then on through the Grey Hills to unsaddle and leave the horses at our yards at Falls creek.
The new 3 day ride, leaving from Falls Creek, will bring the horses home to Spring Spur Stables, riding through Grey Hills, Pretty Valley, Young’s Tops and Mount Fainter.
We will be running a couple of Special Day Rides on the 4th and 5th of January from our yards at Falls Creek to explore the local huts. These rides will include lunch. Send us an e-mail for details and prices.
The popular Mount Bogong and Mount Fainter 5 day pack trips are regularly scheduled throughout the season. The special 7 day pack trip explores new country south of the Bogongs and includes camping at the beautiful Faithful’s hut.
Natural horsemanship clinic’s with Wayne Banney – these trips include an opportunity for you to bring your own horse and are a fantastic adventure. The ‘on the track clinic’ is a proven way to get your horse out of it’s comfort zone and test their ability and endurance. Past experience is testament to the success of these clinic’s when horses and riders come home with a renewed confidence, astounded at what their horses achieved traveling through the mountains of the Bogongs!
