This was a surprise for my husband and he absolutely loved it. It is very professionally run and you can tell that they are very passionate about their horses. We were amateur riders so it was good to do a just a bit of trotting and cantering with nice walking the rest of the way.

Great destination for a ride. Did the morning ride, being an advanced rider it can be boring sometimes if you have an inexperienced group. However they cater well for all levels of riding. Excellent horses, beautiful temperament. And very importantly the horses are really well looked after, clean, healthy and a good temperament. You get to canter a bit, probably... More

Great experience! Staff were so lovely and made us feel very much at home the whole time. They helped us with everything we needed and went above and beyond expectation!! Very cheap for what was included in the 4 hour ride. Not only did we get to walk through the beautiful alpine national park but we also got the opportunity... More

Hubby and I took our 14 yo on his first ever horse ride. We booked the 2 hour trail ride. With the possibility of rain we were decked out with boots and raincoats and saddlebags for our belongings. We all had a wonderful afternoon. The staff are amazing, the horses well mannered and super behaved. Thank you so much. We... More

I took my 7 year old daughter for her first real trail ride recently and she was so excited to go on the 2 hour ride, which ended up being closer to 3 because we had a large, mixed ability group. As a former riding instructor I found their leaders really good, EXCELLENT with my daughter who got scared at... More

Very friendly and professional staff in the family run business. All horses born and raised on the farm and very well trained. Staff took considerable time with each rider ensuring comfort, safety and confidence. We did the two hour ride and enjoyed lovely scenery and the opportunity to trot and canter. Execellent for novices to intermediate horse riders

My daughters and I are avid horse riders. We have ridden with Chapman Valley, Gunnamatta and Watson's Mountain trail rides and highly rate them. Sadly we cannot say the same for Bogong Horseback. They did not split our group, beginners, intermediates and experienced riders were all in together. No doubt a cost saving measure. We had a lengthy wait before... More

I read you review with interest and intend to show the Alpine Shire Council your message. We too are frustrated with the lack of choices as to our short trail riding tracks. We have been lobbying for many years for the Shire to open the riverside reserve (public reserve) for our trail rides and have had little help. I was... More

My friend and I did a 2 hour ride with Bogong Horseback Adventures on a beautiful Sunday morning. The experience was fantastic - great horses, lovely staff, beautiful scenery. My friend was extremely nervous and this ride was a big challenge for her, the staff were aware of this and made every effort to put her at ease - giving... More

Our family of four, kids 8 and 7 all did the two hour trail ride. It was an excellent experience for the entire family. It was very calm and relaxed and it felt like the horses were loved and well cared for. The setting is worth the price of admission alone.

Horses were wonderfully trained. I chose a 4 hour ride so I would not be to sore afterwards. Good decision for my muscles, but with the wonderful location would like to have had longer. Will be considering a longer ride next time.
