The Bogong & Brumby ride is the perfect itinerary for any globetrotter who has a love for riding the High Country and would like to explore the raw and rugged beauty of The Bogong’s under the guardianship and care of Christian and Laura Hayes of Hidden Trails. This husband and wife duo are renowned for bringing first-class riding holidays in two of Australia’s most iconic landscapes – the Kimberley and the High Country.

Astride your sure-footed horse and with your bush guides leading the way you’ll scale wind-swept mountain escarpments, canter along wild-flower fringed tracks and weave through groves of silver-trunked snow gums.

The jewel in the crown of this six-day riding itinerary is encountering the wild-eyed, spirited herds of brumbies that habitat the Bogongs. There is nothing quite thrilling than spotting a mob of brumbies {from your horse} and observing them in their natural state.

As of night time, you’ll be rolling your swag out in either rustic pioneer huts or at a secluded campsite in the middle of the bush. Evenings are spent around a smokey campfire under a dazzling, star-lit sky. The luxury of a hot shower is available each night. You certainly won’t go hungry on this ride, the country cooking is flavoursome and plentiful. Some of the trademark dishes that will appear magically from the well-equipped camp trailer are chicken risotto, rump steak, self-saucing chocolate pudding (made in the camp oven) and pavlova.

Alongside Christian and Laura, is a team of horse people who have a bush soul and will look after your every need from start to finish.
