Tassie Tiger Trail, Australia - Globetrotting horse riding holidays

Anni Conn

‘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!’

Simone Lockhart

“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.’

Melissa Mudge

‘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.’

Shellie Conway

‘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!’
