The Hunt Club Hotel or Merrijig Motor Inn ride takes us through the rolling hills of the Boorolite Valley taking in the views of the magnificent Mt Buller and the surrounding High Country. Whether our destination, is the The Hunt Club Hotel, or the Merrijig Motor Inn, there is sure to be a cold beer or wine awaiting. In the cooler months both offer a welcoming open fire whilst in the warmer months the Hunt Club offers an open deck to relax on after looking through the memorabilia on the walls from “The Man From Snowy River” movies, and the Motor Inn offers a shady summer garden and a pool for a quick refreshing dip.

This ride will take you on an adventure thru the stock routes, private properties and into State Forest. Either starting or finishing at the farm or on the River Block. This is a lovely way to see surrounding areas with great views.
Howqua Valley Weekend Ride
Buckle Up Bushrides will take you on a fantastic weekend away in the historical Howqua Valley with many bridle tracks to be explored!
This old gold mining area on the Howqua River is set in a beautiful, secluded valley, once bustling with gold miners but now popular for picnics, bushwalking and four-wheel driving.
While we are out enjoying our ride the friendly back up vehicle staff will be setting up camp by the Howqua river and will have cold drinks waiting for all on arrival! Meals are hearty and home cooked and in fact Paul’s mum Kay is renowned for her cooking!
Buckle Up can offer you the comfort of a tent or you can swag out under the stars. You can choose to take a dip in the river after a day in the saddle or for those that like the finer things in life we also have a hot shower on offer!
There is many a great trail out here, there is a ride along the flats to the 7 mile with lunch along the way. Fry’s Flat and the historical Fry’s Hut. Or we can ride down to Tobacco Flat crisscrossing the river many times along the way.
On our way home we will climb out of the Howqua River Valley over the timber top saddle down to the Boorolite Valley as we ride for home.
These rides are suitable for both beginners through to experienced riders with a horse to suit everyone!
Non riders are also welcome to come and relax on the river with a fishing rod or just bring your favorite book!
