BY Jody Dahl | Tue 19 Apr, 2011

Enjoy some of the best riding country Australia has to offer!

SNOWY RIVER HORSEBACK ADVENTURE set in beautiful Australia offers 2-5 day luxury Homestead getaways and horseback treks in the Snowy Mountains of NSW Australia since 1993.Yes, in the same similar area as "Man from Snowy River"!

Owned and operated by Glen Dixon and Danielle Ternes, they have built a reputation for quality unsurpassed in the field of horseback trekking.

The spectacular setting This beautiful ranch is based at Old Ingebirah, a working cattle ranch set on 8oo acres of rolling grasslands rising to majestic old growth forests. The Homestead is set amongst an acre of garden and is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy country hospitality at its finest.

A familiy-run vacation destination Very much a family business Danielle’s mother Evelyn Chrystal manages the catering, and 7 year old son Danny runs everybody!

A Danish Chef Evening meals are prepared by Danish chef Henrik Mortenson and are simply superb. They combine the best local ingredients available and use fresh herbs and salads picked from the gardens.

The Guest Accommodations The new purpose built guest wing includes 6 guest rooms and comfortable living space with shared bathrooms. A spa bath helps ease away the aches from the day's horse trekking!

Relaxation In the evening guests are hard put to decide where to relax, games room with pool table, lounge rooms with wood fires, reading room or the deck all offer something different and space in which to unwind and forget about the rest of the world. This is a place you will want to return to time after time.

You ride Quality Horses Of course it is not just the hospitality that is exceptional at Snowy River Horseback Adventure, Glen and Danielle operate an Australian Stock Horse Stud ‘Snowy Mountains Stock Horses’, and breed and train their own horses for trekking and competition. These horses are like no horses you have met before on a trail ride. Showing all the wonderful qualities of the breed, they are intelligent, versatile mounts that can as easily negotiate the rough mountain terrain one day as perform in the showring, jumping or campdrafting the next.

Snowy River Horseback Adventure came as a recommendation to Top50 from Tracey O'Connell, owner of Tod Mountain Ranch in British Columbia - Tracey told Top50 that this horse trekking adventure with Snowy River was one of her most memorable riding holidays - great horses, excellent hospitality. Thanks, Tracey for this introduction to such a wonderful ranch and owners!
