“Thanks so much Peter, Michelle, Marcus and Ibby for a really wonderful trekking experience in the Snowy Mountains. We were part of the first trekking group of the new season, mountains still capped with snow and many herds of brumbies out grazing on the plains. Peter and the team were excellent hosts and despite some pretty chilly conditions at times, -2 degrees one night, we had a fabulous time, great food and great company! Best wishes for the rest of the seasons.”

Peter and Clair, New Zealand

“Had the best trip, great area knowledge by Trail Boss Pete Cochran. Fantastic horses, a horse for every riding level. My horse Butch was a legend! Total care by Ali, Cowboy & Pete. Volunteer Mel has loads of local brumby and area knowledge. Staff are hand picked by Pete for their expertise. They go the extra mile. Food was plentiful & delicious. Great ride mates, had a lovely time. Thank you for the laughter.”

Thank you for your hospitality, humour, history lessons and the opportunity to experience such a magic part of this country. Most of all your beautiful, dependable horses made this journey one I will remember for a lifetime. 5 stars +”

“I wish I was able to give more than 5 starts because I’ve just had 3 amazing days!! The horses are so nice and are picked wisely by Peter, the views were amazing and the stories even better. The food was exceptional and the staff is just perfect, they are so friendly and helpful. I wish I could do it again sometime, and I highly recommend it!  The whole trip was just: Divine ;)”

“I’ve ridden twice with Pete and the team and both experiences were incredible. One ride was across the mountains as part of the Man from Snowy River Festival which was one of the best weeks of my life, the second was a brumby ride – both were outstanding. The staff are fantastic, food is excellent and the horses are delightful – safe, quiet and fun to ride. Can’t recommend them highly enough!”

Lilian

“You couldn’t find a better mob to ride with. Get this on your bucket list people, it’s an amazing place to ride.”

Joanne

“This is a memory forever experience. Breathtaking scenery and new friends made. Horses are all made of sturdy stock and love what they do. Peter personally matches your horse with your riding ability. Staff feel more like friends and support you every step of the way. This is not glamping, but a real bush camping trip where you all pitch in. Food was exceptional, camp fires and an evening drink to reflect on the ride was a perfect way to end each day. Thank you, hope to do it again one day x”

Carol

“The most incredible weekend of my life, from Peter picking the perfect horse for every rider, to the breath taking views, the staff, the food and the laughs. I will cherish the memories forever (until next year anyway). Thank you again for making our weekend so enjoyable. I’ll be telling everyone it’s a must do. See you next year!”

Kate

“This is a must do experience for anyone who is a little horse mad!! Even if you haven’t ridden in years (35 yrs for me) the Cochran horse trek team take extremely good care of each and everyone of their guests…I cannot thank them enough!!!!! You guys rock. I will certainly be back again next year for more horsey shenanigans!!!”

Karen

“On behalf of everyone at Mates4Mates, thank you for providing a very enjoyable, beneficial and healing experience for our Mates. I accompanied a group of veterans as they completed a Snowy Mountains Rehabilitation Adventure Challenge with Cochran Horse Treks which aimed to help improve their mental and physical wellbeing. From the moment we met Peter at the airport, to when we were dropped off, I knew we were in good hands. The staff are fantastic and they have managed to acquire a nice balance of skills and maturity, providing a beneficial program for everyone involved.  I honestly can’t fault the program. We are greatly looking forward to working with Cochran Horse Treks again in the future and help more veterans in need.”
