  • Description

    Description

    My wife and I are living in the beautiful mountainous landscape of Merrijig where "The Man from snowy river" film, an iconic australian horse movie, was made. We have 55 horses and we do trail rides in the mountains. At this time in the year we do short rides between two hours and one day rides locally here at Merrijig. In the summer season we also do overnight and multiple day rides. Plus sometimes we give school kids basic riding lessons. We also have budget accomodation for skiers in the winter and other active people at the rest of the time. We are looking for an experienced rider as you are going to ride different kinds of horses and horses with needing someone who has good control. You will get the great opportunity to join all the rides to accompany the customers and help the staff.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living in the family home will give you the opportunity to participate in the every day routines of our family and friends. You can also learn a lot about handling a large herd of horses (we have 63 horses at the moment) and experience in the natural horsemanship practices we use with our horses.
