Tassie Tiger Trail, Tasmania, AustraliaGo Back
GLOBETROTTING IN TASMANIA, AUSTRALIA
Trust us, once you bite into the Apple Isle, you’ll want to pack your bags and move there. Discover for yourself what makes the island of Tasmania so magical. It will make your heart sing, your spirit soar and its beauty will leave you breathless. And what better way to discover the bushland, beaches, the world famous food (maybe the illusive Tasmanian Tiger) but from the back of a well-educated, endurance horse.
With Quamby Bluff as the backdrop, your hosts Jeremy and Jenny from Gem Farm welcome you to head out onto the never-ending forestry trails which traverse through country side, alongside waterfalls, through 300 year old rainforest, part of the famous Tasmanian Trail.
The rugged escarpment of the Great Western Tiers majestically dominates the landscape. On this five day, four night itinerary riding guests will experience a true microcosm of the islands history and culture, its raw scenery and wildlife not to mention the culinary delights of the local region.
With passionate guides who are infatuated with their island home and a fleet of beautiful pure bred and part bred Arabian horses, your horse riding holiday to the Apple Isle will be one to treasure for years to come.
Gem Farm horses are trained and fit for endurance riding. The horses are all naturally educated and ridden bitless and barefoot. Part of your holiday experience is to sample the world of natural horsemanship and its training methods. Guests have the opportunity to challenge themselves and their horse on the obstacle course and tricks.
