Victoria’s diverse range of national and state parks offer many opportunities for exploration and adventure on horseback. The steady hoof beat of a sure footed horse and the solitude and peace and quiet of the natural environment can transport you in place and in time.
Horse riding allows you to really appreciate the passing countryside. As you amble slowly along a trail, there’s time to be more attentive to the environment and to soak in the scenery. From your high vantage point you’ll be better placed to catch a glimpse of wildlife and listen more closely to native birds.
Victoria’s parks offer many opportunities for riders. Explore the mountains and valleys of the Alps or canter through the Bogong High Plains in summer. Or enjoy the heathlands and tall timbers of the Great Otway National Park, the beaches of the Mornington Peninsula or the woodlands of Macedon Regional Park.
