04 02 103 234

Tour operated by:

Buckle Up Bushrides

Saddle up for a full days ride into and around the back country of Merrijig with a stop over at the Hunt Club Hotel and onto your first destination, the beautiful banks of the Delatite River.

Camp and relax over some nibblies and an early barbecue before you head over to the annual Merrijig Twilight Rodeo where you can watch first hand the excitement of bull riding, the thrill of the saddle broncos, mix with the locals - just a few of the highlights at this great event (entry fees included). At the evening's end, take a short leisurely walk back to camp for a night under the stars.

Wake up at your leisure and enjoy a hearty cooked brunch where you will spend the morning relaxing by the Delatite River. Bring your bathers and pack a fishing rod if you enjoy fishing. You will then saddle up the horses and go for a short ride in the afternoon and then back to the river camp for Kay's famous three course roast dinner.

You will spend the final day with a full day in the saddle exploring the valley and surrounding areas before heading back to the farm in Boorolite.

Tour operator

Buckle Up Bushrides offer High Country horseriding at its best. Discover the beauty and history of Victoria's High Country with an unforgettable horseback adventure with hosts Paul and Shelly.

Paul Skvor is the great, great grandson of William Mitchell Lovick who settled the district in 1871. His grandfather, Jack Lovick began horseback riding tours in the 1960′s and today, the tradition still lives on.

Paul's partner Shelly, has been bush riding since a child and first came to the area after doing a horse safari with Jack's son Charlie back in 2000. Paul and Shelly rode for Charlie Lovick for many years before being encouraged to branch out on their own. The Man from Snowy River movies was filmed throughout the area with Paul's family playing a big part in the making of these movies.

Operating out of the Boorolite Valley, Buckle Up Bushrides have tours catering to riders of all levels. From beginner through to experienced horsemen, their horses have wonderful temperaments and are hardy bush horses.
