Experience the unsurpassed beauty of Kosciuszko National Park on horseback with ‘Reynella Kosciusko Rides’. In operation for our fortieth year, the safaris cover country that inspired Banjo Paterson’s famous “The Man From Snowy River”. Ride the land of mountain horsemen, brumbies, wildflowers and Alpine wilderness. We believe there is no other holiday like it!

Do I need to be an experienced rider?
We cater for all levels of riding ability from beginner to advanced. All riders will have plenty of opportunity to ride to their ability in a safe and controlled manner. Our leaders offer guidance and tuition en route and we find that beginner riders can gain confidence whilst the competent rider can refine their skills. As horse riding is a physical activity a certain level of fitness will be required. Reynella is proud of its ability to match horses with riders. Our horses are bush wise with strength and stamina to work in all terrains.
Are your leaders qualified?
Our trek leaders are AHRC certified with years of experience behind them.
