Mark & Fenella have some beautiful horses on the farm, with Millie becoming an excellent eventer in show jumping and dressage.

Although I love horses, I don't often get chance to ride them, so it was great to take a ride out with Millie one evening.

who for some reason is a horrible horse and keen on biting or kicking... unless you're on him, in which case he is an obedient gentleman!

Riding in the area around Mount Buller (below) offers amazing views.

But riding on the farm presents the challenge of opening a closing the gates to keep the live stock in the right place!
Millie is an expert at this..
