Feedback for 'Tassie Tiger Trail, Australia' Ride
‘What an amazing five days – Jen, Jeremy and Meg welcomed us from the first minute. They love and know their horses and their surrounding regions and neighbours, and were so delighted to share them with us. Each day was different: ground work and obstacles, riding trails along a river, climbing a mountain with views in every direction, riding along a wide open beach in the national park.
Jen and Jeremy have amazing insight into their horses and picked a winner for every rider. I was privileged to ride the magnificent Moonlight, a proud and confident mare who was very surefooted, responsive and eager. I would love to steal her and make her my own. The saddle was the most comfortable I have ever ridden in, too.
The days were filled with great stories, riding tips and wonderful food (the French toast at the raspberry farm – I think I died and went to heaven)! I loved it all!’
‘My very first solo traveller holiday ended up being the Tassie Tiger Trail in Tasmania with Jen and Jeremy. The bar could not have been set any higher!
Piccolo and I were a perfect match – he had the ability to read my energy and confidence levels perfectly and adjust accordingly. The horsemanship session on day one really set us all up for success. My confidence as a rider increased with every hour and after a couple of days in the saddle, we thoroughly enjoyed a canter along the beach as well as a climb up a mountain. Jen, Jeremy and Meg were the most amazing guides and hosts and made the entire experience so special. Great conversations, belly laughs and insights into Tasmania’s flora and fauna. Not only was the riding amazing, but the food and cultural experiences were up there, too. The time went way too fast, so the only thing that’s left to do is return again next year!’
‘My favourite day was climbing the mountain – the trail up was beautiful. It was such a great experience, with fantastic views from the top. The accommodation was great. I loved the old world decor and the history of Blakes Manor. The home cooked meals were lovely, and I also loved the salmon farm platters. Jen and Jeremy were very knowledgeable horse people who looked after everyone on the ride. I was very happy with the standard of tack and my horse Ruby was great – well trained and reliable for the nervous rider that I am. I would love to ride her again on a future trip and am already booked on the Grape Horse Adventure with Jen and Jeremy in three months’ time.’
‘Best hosts. Fantastic horses. Perfect itinerary. Superb scenery. Fantastic food. Excellent accommodation. I loved every day!
I have never met guides the calibre of Jen and Jeremy. They were always happy, relaxed and genuine. I felt very welcome and at ease. I had great respect for their knowledge of horses and the environment we rode through. They were great conversationalists, with many amusing stories to tell. Jeremy was brilliant at matching horses to riders. Ruby was perfect: very well trained, obedient, willing to please, fit, healthy and strong. She enjoyed a trot and canter, was responsive to light aids, and was armchair-smooth to ride. She powered up the mountain and picked her way very carefully through rocky areas.
I have never tasted such consistently high-standard food in terms of flavour, presentation, service and surroundings. Every meal was superb! Best holiday ever.’
‘Globetrotting holidays tick all the boxes for the best organised riding holiday! Not to mention the great people you meet along the way! Every day was amazing. I especially loved the ride to the top of the Western Tiers. I rode Piccolo and I loved him – he was brilliant! Jen, Jeremy and Meg, thank you for a wonderful week, and a big thank you to all of the amazing horses! Sit back and enjoy the ride, you will have a blast!’
‘This ride was very professionally run and our hosts were willing to accommodate any requests. Every day was so different, it’s impossible to pick a favourite. I loved each for different reasons. Jen, Jeremy and Meg were all so friendly right from the start and made us all feel very welcome. They are very knowledgeable, obviously adore their horses and are more than happy to share their expertise. More than anything, though, they are super nice people and great fun to be around.
I rode Opal, a very sweet girl who knows how to look after her rider. Very surefooted and careful, but eager to move along as well. Having meals at a salmon farm, raspberry farm and hazelnut farm was a lovely way to enjoy all the local produce while supporting the local businesses. The food at our accommodation was first class as well. I’m sure I came home 5 kilos heavier!’
‘I would recommend this ride without hesitation. It was excellent value-for-money. All the meals were fantastic. I rode Moo, who had a lovely temperament and was very responsive. The guides were very knowledgeable and hospitable in every aspect of the trip. Each day was completely different, which was always exciting, and having good weather made things very pleasant. I would definitely book with Globetrotting again.’
‘This was my first real horse riding experience outside of the odd trail ride here and there. I was a bit worried about whether my body would hold up to four days of horse riding but I am so glad it did. I wouldn’t have missed any of the days for anything. The Tasmanian scenery is always beautiful but to experience it on horseback, and on my horse Jabberwocky, was amazing. He was the ultimate gentleman. I loved him to bits and he took great care of me. All of the horses with Jen and Jeremy are amazing – strong, beautiful and you can truly trust them. The most special moment was getting to the top of the Western Tiers mountain range – a long way up and down, and you have to trust your horse to make the best decision about where to walk – and Jabberwocky did it with ease. I would recommend this ride to everyone with a love of beautiful horses, scenery, and of course fabulous food and wine from Tasmania.’
‘I had an amazing ride and I thoroughly enjoyed everything that was on offer. Wonderful horses, incredible scenery, a lovely group of riders and excellent service. Bonney’s Inn was fantastic and Teresa made us feel right at home. Jen and Jeremy are amazing – they opened their home to us and were very knowledgeable about the area we were riding in and the local heritage. I had the pleasure of riding Opal and Zameer, two incredibly well trained, good-natured horses. They are a credit to Jen and Jeremy. I loved riding through the beautiful forest and seeing the sights that Tassie has to offer, as well as the amazing beach ride – a beautiful day topped off with a canter along a perfect beach. I had such an fantastic holiday and would be happy to ride with Jen and Jeremy again.’
‘The Tassie Tiger Trail was great. Every day was different and the scenery was spectacular. My horse Ruby was a good ride. She was definitely the head mare! Jeremy and Jen were friendly, interesting and full of horse knowledge. They made everyone feel welcome into their life. Our host Theresa was wonderful and very friendly, and cooked fantastic food for us. I would definitely recommend this ride.’
‘This is an awesome experience for horse riders. The horses are well trained and love their job, the hosts are top notch and the accommodation is five star. I was apprehensive at the beginning, but quickly got over that when I saw the professional way this ride is conducted. Jeremy and Jen are lovely people and lots of fun. Teresa looked after all of us so well at our accommodation. I rode Basheer and I loved that little horse. The beach ride was the best, but all of the other rides were great, too. Give it a go – you won’t be disappointed!’
‘Jeremy and Jen are kind and gracious hosts. I felt completely confident and comfortable with them both. Moo, my six year old Arab mare, was perfect. She was super sensitive, which is just what I like, and very easy to ride. Her saddle was super comfortable, too. I loved riding at the river and the beach, as well as the groundwork. Jeremy taught me a completely different approach to riding. Jen and Jeremy’s food was terrific and the lunches on the hoof were fabulous, too. I liked that massages were available and it was fantastic that we were able to do a yoga class on Sunday morning (everyone came!).’
‘Riding through the Tasmanian wilderness, or up steep mountain tracks, or cantering along an endless stretch of beach on a beautifully trained, fit, willing, bitless and barefoot Arabian – it is hard to imagine a more perfect ride. Add to that gourmet experiences of Tasmania’s wonderful produce, and comfortable beds with your own ensuite in a quirky B&B that serves the best breakfasts ever. Top it off with wonderful hosts Jen and Jeremy, and you’ve got it all. Can’t wait to do the next one!’
‘We had an amazing time on the Tassie Tiger Trail – we cannot speak highly enough of Jen and Jeremy. They were amazing hosts, they made us feel so very welcome right from the first day. I was given the pleasure of riding Basheer, who was the perfect fit for me. Learning about natural horsemanship and how to bond with the horses with groundwork was enlightening and a great experience. The daily adventures on the bush trails were so much fun, and the visits to the salmon farm and Bakers Beach were particular highlights. Bonney’s Inn, where we stayed each night, was such a lovely old building, done up very comfortably. Theresa, our host there, kept us fed with amazing dinners and desserts. The time went so fast, and I’m now back at work wishing I could have done this trek all over again. We will definitely be looking at another trek soon. This holiday fulfilled a bucket list dream for me.’
‘I had not ridden for nine years and was unsure how I would feel after my ride on day one. Opal, my trusty, surefooted steed, was a perfect choice for me and was very easy to ride. The saddle was extremely comfortable and, after five days, let alone one, I can thankfully say I did not experience any stiffness associated with being saddle-sore. Every day was wonderful, but the highlights would have to be riding up to the Great Western Tiers mountain range – incredible scenery – and the beach ride in Narawntapu National Park, with fresh oysters, cold drinks and potato chips awaiting our return to the starting point of the trail. I can’t speak highly enough of Jen and Jeremy’s level of service, knowledge of the environment and hospitality – they contributed to making the trip a wonderful experience. This trip was excellent value for money and above my expectations.’
‘This ride was SOOOOO great! We had a truly fantastic time. I could write an essay about how good it was and why, how safe and professional Jen and Jeremy are, how utterly outstanding their horses are (I rode Gem, who was just delightful and a real sweetie) and how beautiful and exhilarating the rides were. Quite simply, everything was perfect and I have nothing to report other than that the trip matched my expectations (which were extremely high!) and I can’t wait to go again! You girls (and guys) at Globetrotting are so fantastically thorough and helpful and provide a spot-on, five star service from start to finish, so everything was easy from go to whoa. A bit too easy, I think, as now the sky is the limit as to where I go next with Globetrotting!’
‘The Tassie ride was a very special and emotional one for me, as I sadly lost my best friend and soul mate Maccy (Moo Bear) three weeks prior. It was the most difficult time saying goodbye to the most loving and forgiving horse.
The weather in Tassie was all over the place, but I loved every second. My faithful steed was Moonlight, nicknamed Moo. We connected straight away and she was absolutely gorgeous. Our hosts Jeremy, Jen and Matilda were so kind, caring and understanding. They treated us like family and made us feel so confident and relaxed. The rides were spectacular, especially going on the beach and having the freedom to just relax and enjoy such beauty… I couldn’t stop smiling and just feeling at peace.
I’m so looking forward to my next ride and hopefully heading back to Tassie. I want to thank you all so much for these rides – they have made an enormous impact on my life and I will continue to spread my wings.’
‘Nothing is too much trouble on this ride. Jeremy and Jen’s hospitality is exemplary. The scenery is beautiful. I loved the accommodation. All meals and catering were superb – especially eating the most amazing oysters, straight off the rocks, after our beach ride. Above and beyond any oyster I’ve ever tasted!
The horses are certainly well educated in their chosen environment, well behaved and responsive. I thought the way Jeremy showed us how to understand our horse and vice versa on the ground before getting on their backs was extremely important. Then having us do the obstacle course together was terrific, so much fun! I rode the lovely Ruby. What a horse, very easy to manage. I think everyone who rides Ruby wants to take her home.
If you like good food and wine, go to Tasmania.’
‘I had the time of my life! Firstly, I have never met more beautiful people than Jen and Jeremy. I was blown away by how warm and friendly they are, not to mention how incredible they were at teaching us how to be natural horsemen! Their skills are evident and they have a clear bond with the horses. I was lucky enough to have Piccolo, who was a stunner and lots of fun, and I’m having such withdrawals – I have literally thought of nothing else since returning home other than how I can get back there! The scenery was breathtaking every day, and we did such interesting rides, like nothing I have done before. We all loved the accommodation with Theresa – she was just lovely, and the food was delicious!
The group I went with felt like family after five days together. We have stayed in touch after our shared experience and I look forward to doing another trip again soon. I can’t speak highly enough of this ride!’
‘OMG it was heaven!
What was best, you ask?
Beautifully trained horses – I LOVED learning the art of natural horsemanship, then putting our skills to test through the obstacle course! My horse, Piccolo, took it all in his stride – what a champ.
The Tassie food trail – strawberries, cheese, salmon, chocolate, honey & wine – what more could you want but the most awesome beach ride finished up with freshly shucked oysters!
The mountain ride with the most incredible views, topped off by a wedge-tailed eagle appearing out of the scrub right in front of us – what a majestic creature, and how lucky were we!
The beautiful old bush tracks, visiting McLachlan Studios – stunning handmade jewellery and sculptures.
I simply cannot choose, as every day was different and just as awesome! Riding in pouring rain didn’t even put a dent in it – it was all so much fun. Jen and Jeremy worked hard to make our whole experience interesting, exciting, fun, relaxed, pampered and truly Tasmanian.
I cannot wait for my next adventure with Globetrotting – you really know how to put a horse riding holiday with all the bells and whistles together!’
‘Another brilliant five days of riding with Jen and Jeremy and their A team of happy horses. I rode Moo, and she was great – responsive and energetic. And on the last day I had the chance to ride Jabberwocky, who I rode on the Grape Horse Adventure earlier this year. Jeremy and Jen were again incredibly patient, cheerful, helpful, and generous with us as guests in their home, and provided wonderful meals. The variety in this ride is a standout, from secret narrow trails through native forest, wide tracks through farmland, the long stretch of pristine beach at Narawntapu National Park, and climbing up the steep rocky scree to the summit of the Great Western Tiers to the most amazing view. Great food, great conversation, great companions. Just do it!’
“We loved every second of the Tassie Tiger Trail and I fell totally in love with my super handsome purebred Arab, Colty. The highlight of the trip for us was the beach ride. There is nothing more exhilarating than cantering along a beach with windswept hair (and a windswept mane!) tasting the salty spray of the waves as hooves pound through the water. Thanks to Jeremy and Jen for going out of their way to make the trip so incredible. It was truly ‘h-awesome’.”
‘The Tassie Tiger Trail is the perfect way to get back in the saddle for people who have not done much horse riding in recent years. Over five days you establish a rapport with your horse and build up your confidence while also enjoying the beautiful scenery of northern Tasmania and some great foodie experiences. The horses are highly trained and highly responsive. The hosts – Jeremy and Jen – are former endurance riders and two of the nicest people you would meet anywhere. Their enthusiasm, positivity and sense of humour were contagious and gave everyone a sense of joie de vivre.’
‘I had the most amazing time on the Tassie Tiger Trail. Jeremy and Jen left no stone unturned, from selecting our horses and making sure we all understood how to control and enjoy them to feeding us and showing us the best time. I would highly recommend this ride to all levels of riders. I absolutely adored my horse Ruby – I so wish I could have taken her home. I would go back in a heartbeat.’
‘This is the most amazing way to experience Tasmania on well trained, beautiful horses. I would recommend it to anyone who loves horses and exploring. The hosts, Jen and Jeremy, are the loveliest couple I have ever met. They perfectly matched me with Moo, who was one of the most soft and responsive horses I have ever ridden. I had the time of my life and hope to join Jen, Jeremy and Moo on the Grape Horse Adventure in the future.’
‘Jen and Jeremy are delightful! Their love and joy for horses and what they do is obvious and contagious. Knowledgeable, caring and always mindful of safety for horses and riders, they ensured we had the best experience of natural horsemanship, the Tasmanian landscape and hospitality. My horse, Mr Squiggle, was a true gentleman. Beautiful, well mannered, gentle, and exceptionally well trained. As an endurance horse, he was more than up to the task – forward moving and fun to ride. The weather was sensational! Clear skies and warmer than expected. The scenery was stunning, as was the village of Deloraine where we stayed. I met a bunch of fabulous women and as a group we bonded easily. Climbing the Western Tiers, riding along the coastline and visiting the many artisanal food and craft businesses were just some of the highlights. Thank you Jen and Jeremy and thank you Globetrotting. I’ll be booking my next ride very soon!’
‘This was our first Globetrotting experience and it couldn’t have been better. Jen and Jeremy made us all so welcome and our horses were so well trained and sure-footed. We felt 100% safe whether we were familiarising ourselves with our horses on the obstacle course, riding up and down steep hills, through the bush or along the beautiful beach. We fell in love with our horses, Ruby and Opal, and would have brought them home in a heartbeat if Jen and Jeremy would have parted with them! Our hostess at Bonny’s Inn, Teresa, was lovely. She made everyone feel like one big happy family and was so accommodating. All our meals – at the B&B, the restaurants and at Jen and Jeremy’s – were fabulous. We couldn’t have wished for better. We will be back!’

The accommodation had such a homely feel and we were made so welcome by Theresa and Randall. I rode Twinkle T Star. She is fabulous – sweet, soft and responsive, and she has an amazing floating canter. I loved the variety of the riding across the trip – open forest, dense ferns on the edges of trails, then up through mountain scrub and along the beach. I am so glad I chose this ride as my first Globetrotting experience and it definitely won’t be my last!’
