"The Man from Snowy River may well be a myth, but the spirit of Banjo Paterson's legend lives on in the Cochran family."

Cochran Horse Treks operate horse treks across the beautiful Snowy Mountains of Australia from homesteads at Yaouk on the east and Khancoban on the west. We offer the greatest variety of horseback adventures in Australia.

Over 160 years the Cochran family have gathered the necessary breeding in horses to offer an outstanding quality of trekking horse.

Our staff are our family and make our riders feel warm and welcome without the sense of pretense or commercialism, offering a genuine Australian outback experience.

Our priorities at all times are safety, comfort, and good humour so come along for a memorable experience and enjoy the ride of your life! Cochran Horse Treks are NSW National Parks and Wildlife accredited Eco Pass holders authorised to conduct horseback tours of Snowy Mountains Kosciusko National Park. Lic:10/687

Winter Update 2015

After a mild start to the winter, the Snowies have really turned it on, the resorts have received some great snowfalls and now we're getting lovely sunny days, very cold nights and big morning frosts. Our wonderful horses have been enjoying their off-season break and the rugging program has continued this winter with most of them wearing brand new or repaired rugs. All the horses were brought in last week for some maintenance (hooftrims, grooming & drenching and mineral supplement) and the majority of them are in superb condition. With all the good winter moisture we've received, we're looking forward to a fantastic spring season (only a few weeks away now) with a good number of advance bookings already received. We advise the following treks are already booked out and now closed for further bookings (2nd November - 5 day trek; 8th November - 5 day trek; 25th March 2016 Corryong Festival Trek also now closed) As we're taking limited bookings in the early part of the season, several other scheduled treks are coming close to closing, so if you're thinking of joining us for a fantastic Snowy Mountains horseback experience, please book early to avoid disappointment! Can't wait to see you in the Spring!!!
