Had a fantastic weekend ride with friends. Kevin Higgins and his wife Mel and daughter Jess took the ride to Mt Reynard and Mt Tamboritha. Kevin is a real high country character who has a wealth of knowledge about the area and its history. Mel and Jess are kind and helpful. The accommodation is in a bunkhouse and its very clean, hot showers, comfortable and warm. Huge campfire to sit around at night.
The food was cooked with love by Mr Walker (John) and was plentiful, fresh and delicious. We had freshly made wraps for lunch, eggs and bacon or sausages & cereal for breakfast, roast beef and roast veggies for dinner.
The horses were very quiet and a range available for beginners to experienced riders. They are well cared for and obviously loved by the Higgins family. There's lots of opportunities to canter or you can choose to walk if you prefer - there's no pressure to canter at all. We had a few beginners in our group and they felt relaxed and confident on the ride and managed to canter in the end.
Beautiful scenery through the high country, with a different view around every corner. Photo opportunity from the top of the mountains was breathtaking.
Very quiet relaxing spot, with no phone service (bonus), or electricity you can really unwind. Can charge your phone if need.
Would recommend this ride to anyone who loves riding and the high country.
