Join the Lovick's High Country Adventures family, Australia's original horseback riding tour operators, for the adventure of a lifetime in Victoria's High Country. From the moment you sit in the saddle you will be swept up in the romance and adventure of horse riding with genuine mountain cattlemen and women.

Glenda and Charlie Lovick and now their daughter Kellie have over 40 years experience operating internationally renowned adventure horseback riding tours in the Mansfield Mount Buller region. In 1982, Charlie taught 'The Man From Snow River' actor Tom Burlinson to ride. Eric Bana (who scrubbed up on his riding skills for the Hollywood blockbuster, Troy) is quoted as saying, "I reckon five lessons with Charlie is worth 105 with anyone else."

You will love the fun and excitement of horseback riding along bridle tracks, through crystal clear rivers or galloping across high country passes. Whether you join them for a fun weekend trail ride or take on a more challenging 12 day horse riding adventure, beginners and experienced riders alike will be able to relax and enjoy every moment.

All horses have excellent temperaments and physical ability. Lovick's High Country Adventures's qualified guides expertly match horse and rider, and provide thorough instruction and encouragement to put the most apprehensive rider at ease. Key staff members are qualified with the Association of Horse Safety and Education (AHSE).

Lovick's High Country Adventures offer a range of tours and accommodation, including cattle drives, weekend horse rides, trail rides, school camps, corporate team building and bush weddings. Or join Tom Burlinson for the ride of your life with Lovick's High Country Adventures 'Man From Snowy River' Ride through the mountains made famous in the movie.
