What you'll do

Visit our remote and private location on the Snowy River where we live with our 4 brumbies who are free to roam on the river and in our bush land.
Spend time with the brumbies on the river and in their bush home. You can take many photos and the horses love a pat and carrot to say hi.
Then your will have a personal brumby experience with our brumbies in the round yard. This includes a small show and information session on the brumby and their unique qualities. You can then come in with the brumby and do some 'ground work' training with myself guiding you on natural horsemanship. Once you feel comfortable we can then give you a bareback riding experience in the round yard with the brumby. Here you will learn how they respond to different signals and how to work with them using different horse handling techniques suitable to their wild mannerisms and instincts.
Lastly you can will be given a morning or afternoon tea and a chat on where to find the brumbies in the wild here in the Snowy Mountains of NSW. All money earned goes to their care, and I can also offer you on another day visiting by 4 wheel drive private chauffeur to see other wild brumbies Mountains on a photo shoot.

I have been training and caring for 3 brumbies (wild horses), who live with us on the Snowy River. I have lived here in the Snowy Mountains for over 10 years and have grown to know and love these once wild animals.
After having many visitors enjoy the experience of handling and riding a brumby, including many children, I would like to extend this to visitors to our alpine wilderness.
Whether it is just a pat, and a photo or two, or a session in our round yard with a ride as well, then I can give you a huge amount of information and show you how amazing these wild horses are.

This experience was beyond great, not only will you learn a lot but also gives you a warm,close and loving approach which made us all feel extra relaxed, this helped a lot since we were mostly first timers. I can't express the level of hospitality, we didn't only get to ride they're brumbies in which we came for but also was also given the opportunity to feed baby kangaroos and to add to all this it was beautiful to see the brumbies been given the most tender of treatment and care by having a beautiful fresh water river with magnificent views of nature, where again Claire said we're welcome to take a dip. After a few moments of hesitation we all managed to jump in the water which was absolutely amazing while seeing all of they're brumbies freely walk through one side of the water to another is something we can't forget, we could not have had a more better experience. Please keep it up and will definitely be back. Thank you Claire, Charlie & Bo ❤️

What a joyful time! My partner gave me this experience for our wedding anniversary. It had been many years since I've ridden as, despite my love of horses, my work demands and other commitments make working with horses a non-event. Meeting Claire, Charlie, and Beau, and getting to ride one of their gorgeous brumbies was something I'll not soon forget. The property is amazing, with the kind of bush isolation I love. And our hosts are lovely people that made me feel welcome and wanted.

What an amazing and beautiful experience. To be able to connect with brumbies and learn about them. Claire’s place is surrounded by the beauty of the bush and you feel a connection to it all.

This experience was absolutely fantastic! We felt very welcomed right from the start which continued all the way through the experience. Claire, Charlie and Bo shared wonderful stories and passed down knowledge that was clearly a passion of theirs. Wonderful experience for our 4 year old daughter. We will definitely be back and highly recommend!
