The High Country Pub Trail Horse Trek

Mount up and begin the big hill climb which soon gives way to spectacular views of the surrounding mountains of the Crown and Pisa ranges. The working Merino sheep farm land turns to rugged rock and tussock country as you climb higher to get that even better photo opportunity. Really feels like you are on top of the world in the middle of nowhere! Descend to the Cardrona Hotel where you dismount & tie your horse to our hitching rail and enjoy a well earned beverage on us in the gorgeous garden bar. If you fancy a bit of a run heres your chance to cut loose! This ride offers many opportunities for a nice canter- the whole package!

Full Description

Our lovely team of trekking horses are waiting to take you on an unforgettable journey into the mountains.

We have handpicked the horses for their kind and gentle temperament and behaviour both on the ground and under saddle.

There are a selection of ages, heights and “horsanalities” across the herd to cater for riders of differing weights and riding experience levels.

We use Syd Hill Half Breed saddles which are a cross between a western and Australian stock style saddle, so very comfortable for long distance riding, and very lightweight for the horses comfort. They have been fitted with “monkey straps” to the pommel (front of the saddle) for those who would like to hold on for extra stability. Also extra strapping to tie on extra clothing, camera cases etc. Children’s saddles available.

We provide a one-on-one riding lesson with each rider before the trek departs to ensure riders are confident with how to steer and stop, although we do encourage the more humane “loose rein” style of riding so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery!
