Leave this century and recapture the pioneering rural atmosphere of the 1800’s for a day at Silver Brumby Trail Rides, located on the outskirts of the Macedon Ranges.
Ride through shady forests and gentle rolling hills. Then afterwards, put your feet up, sit back and enjoy a restful afternoon by Thowra’s Hut, taking in the vista of horses in paddocks nearby. Experience the simple pleasure of horse back riding in the country while brushing up on your old riding skills. 

2 Hour Ride
The ride starts from Thowra’s Hut, where we saddle up and head off. As everyone finds there balance and becomes acquainted with their mounts for the ride ahead, we make our way through the back gate revealing a tree- lined trail beyond. Following the Old China Track, relics of the gold mining era are revealed. We continue through the Wombat Forest on the Boundary Track, which in time leads us back home. Back at Thowra’s Hut, we dismount and tie up the horses to complete your ride.

3 Hour Ride
For the more advanced rider, we steadily climb up the mountain range, descending down the winding track into the valley below and on to Kangaroo Creek. Here we enjoy a pleasant break, taking in the peace and quiet of the bush while having a cup of coffee or tea and light refreshments. Then we saddle up again and continue along Kangaroo Creek and homeward-bound. Sit back and enjoy a restful afternoon by the hut, meet Silver Brumby’s family, or just stay inside the cozy shack by a warm crackling fire.

    Rides start at 10.00 AM and 02.00 PM, for more information or to personalise your ride don’t hesitate to contact us.
