Buckle Up Bushrides will take you horse riding in the high country where you will stay at Lovick's Hut - this is the family hut.

Riding out through Sheepyard flats, you ride up the river to Pike's Flat where you spend your first night camping under the stars on the mighty Howqua.

Day two, ride up the 16 mile track underneath the Bluff to the Bluff hut for lunch, the majestic views of the high country will have you in awe. You then ride around Mount Lovick and drop down into the saddle where Lovick's Hut is located amongst beautiful snow gums.

Day three, ride out for the day and take in the sights from the Snowy movies, Helicopter Spur, Picture Point and the famous King Billy tree. A vehicle will meet you at the crossroads for lunch. You will then head back to Lovick's Hut where Kay will be preparing one of her beautiful roast dinners for the final night.

Finally, after a hearty breakfast you will head back down the mountain and back into river country, where you cross the Howqua many times with some great canters along the way and finally finish back at Historic Howqua Hills.

Buckle Up Bushrides offer High Country horse riding at its best. Discover the beauty and history of Victoria's High Country with an unforgettable horseback adventure with your 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, born in in Gippsland has been bush riding since she was a child and first came to the area after doing a horse safari with Jack's son Charlie back in 2000. Both 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 through out the area with Paul's family playing a big part in the making of these movies.
