Horse Trekking Program

Last updated 08 Dec, 2022

Imagine 5 days riding through the Snowy mountains. It is exhilarating and challenging but the trail staff and instructors at Spur Ranch will get you through it. It will be an adventure you will never forget.

If you have completed our 2-day horse handlers’ course, you can take the next step by applying for the horse trekking program.

In the lead up to the trek you will undertake a series of training sessions in advanced horse care and basic riding skills. These sessions will prepare you for the 5-day trek.

Training sessions:

  • Introduction to riding
  • Educating a horse from the ground
  • How to tack and untack a horse
  • Grooming
  • The basic principles of riding
  • Preparing to trek a horse

As standard practice, all participants are required to complete the 2-day horse handling course before they register for the trek. This allows our team to assess your competency. It also introduces participants to the basic skills required and ensures everyone is mentally and physically prepared for the trek course
