Great ride upto Craigs Hut - day ride only. Horses worked well. Chris very informative regarding trail and info along the way. Only suggestion is take a bandana of some sort as alot of dust whilst riding the horses and whilst heading to our start point via mini bus. Other than that a fantastic ride (7.5hrs) all up. You will... More

My daughter and I had a fantastic three days horse ride up into the high country. Our horses were wonderful, responsive and a dream to ride. The highlight would have been posing on top of the mountain on a rock with the whole world below us. Amazing. The staff were just great, friendly and gave good advice to make our... More

The 2 day horse ride to Craig's hut and Razorback huts is the only way to see the high country. High country horses provide an amazing experience. Staff are very experienced and great to chat to. My brother and I took our dad for his sixtieth and a staff member surprised us with a delicious home made birthday cake for... More

An amazing adventure with friends when we rode for 2 days out of Merrijig in May 2016. Chris and Fiona run a very professional company and their horses are excellent. Safety for both rider and horse is a prime concern. Although I had not ridden for many years, I never once felt scared or intimidated by this ride. We had... More

If you want a memorable adventure in the high country, I cannot recommend this company highly enough 😊 The owners and staff are genuinely lovely people, the horses are loved, well cared for, keen and responsive, and the country is spectacular. Safety is a high priority and the ride is very well organised and managed. A weekend I'll never forget... More

I would have trouble expressing how impressed I was with the 3 day ride, I just did with High Country Horses. From the beautiful panoramic views, the great food, the horses, and the staff, it was all great and I'm very pleased to have ridden with them. I was quite sceptical upon learning that our group size was to be... More

I recently suggested to a old high school friend that we do a Snowy Mountain Horse Ride and we went with a High Country Horses's two day/one night Craig's Hut ride. I have done this ride before with this company and absolutely loved it, and having ridden with quote a few companies, I was very happy to only consider them... More
