guided mountain bush walk through the high country of Kangaroo Valley...
What we do:
The Mountain Trail Rides/Horse Rides climb through lush rainforest on Mt Moollootoo, one of the highest mountains in the Kangaroo Valley (530 meters above sea level). From the peak of Moollootoo there are panoramic views of the property, the Morton National park, Lake Yurunga and the Kangaroo River, some of the most beautiful horse riding in Australia, a perfect backdrop for photographs of cowboys and cowgirls on horseback.
We have put together a herd of outstanding horses for horseback riding. Only about a third of the horses we trial have met our standards for all around suitability. Our selection criteria emphasize safety and performance. Each horse is ridden and trained by our staff for approximately three months in all conditions and each must pass our rigorous selection process. We have also incorporated several cantering areas for the skilled and adventurous, and organized the ride so that the novice can feel secure under the guidance of our experienced trail leaders.
