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 elusive Tasmanian Tiger) than 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 take you through the countryside, alongside waterfalls and through 300 year old rainforest as 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 island’s 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 purebred 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 also have the opportunity to challenge themselves and their horse with the obstacle course and tricks.
