Professional Packing School

2 NIGHTS $439
Join Bogong Horseback Adventures in this unique Professional Packing School experience. Steve Baird had a rough introduction to the packhorse joining Clive Hodge, Tiger Ripper and Archie Timms on a re-enactment of the gold pack horse train from Walhalla to Rosedale for the Victorian Sesquicentennial celebration in 1984. The hard miles and big loads sparked a lifelong interest and Steve and Kath went on to form Bogong Horseback Adventures in 1986 and have offered packhorse tours into the Victorian High Country since. Over that time the Baird's and their horses have covered about 552,000 kilometres, climbed about, worn out about 11,500 horse shoes, loaded about 11,500 pack loads, spent 1800 days on the track and 1400 nights in the swag. The Baird blokes have judged the Pack Horse event at The Man From Snowy River competition for over 10 years. This Packing School has been developed to be informative and relevant to the horsemanship in the 21st century combined with the traditional heritage of the Australian pack horse.
