Leaving from Merrijig Lodge, with a horse matched to your ability, if you are an inexperienced rider, we teach you how to trot and canter (there is always plenty of staff to help) or you can just walk along and enjoy the view.
Upon entering the forest you wind your way down to the Buttercup Creek through the Peppermint Gums and Candle Barks, you may observe a wallaby dash off through the bush or catch a glimpse of the elusive deer.
As we cross the creek your horse navigates its way over the stoney rock floor. Once out of the stream you are on the open plain of the Deadwood forest with its gentle upward slope to the highest point.
Now the fun really begins. Your decision, to join the group who want a leisurely walk, or the buzz of a canter to the top.
At the top, while your horse takes a well-earned rest and you catch your breath, you see the mountains of the high country made famous in the film 'Man from Snowy River II' staring down on you, Buller, Stirling, Mt No. 3, the Pinnacle, Razorback, this is the real high country
It now a leisurely walk back. As you enter the gate to the homestead it seems time has slipped away, you have experienced "the Man from Snowy River" country.
As you walk away you can hear yourself say, "Maybe we should do the weekend ride next time".
