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.

We had an excellent time on this experience! Claire has 4 rescue Brumbies on the property and the experiences she runs with them are mainly to support their ongoing care and upkeep. Her love for these animals was clear and by the end of the experience I felt a genuine love and interest to know more about these iconic Australian animals. The 3 hours are spent learning, watching some training, participating in some training, some riding and then, finally, a cup of tea and a chat. I am a little nervous around horses but this experience was great for me and I walked away feeling a lot more confident and interested to learn more. Claire and her son, Charlie, were amazing hosts and they made us feel very welcome. We learnt a lot and genuinely felt like we made friends with them both. The property is beautiful and as the sun set it felt really magical to be with the horses in the bush. I would 100% recommend this experience to anyone and everyone it was truly memorable!

My children had a wonderful time interacting with the brumbies and Claire’s dogs! They walked away not only riding the brumbies but also with an understanding of what each of these beautiful animals have been through.

Claire and her family gave us the best time! My kids and I rode and hubby watched but still enjoyed the experience taking some videos and photos. They made us feel like their friends and catered so well to my kids, 6yo and 9yo. We can’t wait to come back at the end of the year!
