Horse riding tours in Cradle Mountain are popular with locals and tourists alike due to the area's stunning scenery, deep valleys and beautiful bush tracks.
Whether you are an advanced equestrian, a relative newcomer to trail riding or you prefer to take walking tours while the rest of the family go riding, you can have fun outdoors in this corner of Tasmania. Horses are selected for temperament and the range of breeds includes Arabs, Quarter Horses, Percherons, Warmbloods, Thoroughbreds, Clydesdale (and crosses), Australian Stock Horses and Welsh Mountain Ponies!
With your pick of half-day, full-day and multi-day rides, it is easy to plan your horse-riding adventure and still have time relax by a fire at the end of the day in one of Cradle Mountain Lodge’s chalets.
Tours last from three to six hours per day, but there are plenty of opportunities to take a break from soaking up the surroundings and morning tea is often included in the total costs.
Among some of the main attractions are rolling hills, creeks, logs to jump over and guided tours led by experts who are more than happy to show you all the best spots.
If you are looking to get back to nature and away from the rat race, eucalyptus trees, mountain views and rural landscapes will help clear your mind as you breathe in the fresh air. VERY fresh air.
There is also the opportunity to traverse other parts of the Great Western Tiers region, as well as Mersey Valley and Vale of Belvoir that sits on the edge of the Cradle Mountain World Heritage area.
