Horse Holidays On the Homestead

We are blessed to have a magnificent property overlooking Strath Creek and suited for horses and a menagerie of native animals that visit regularly.

BYO Horse

Enjoy the surrounding areas of Strath Creek on your own horse. We have easy access entering and exiting the homestead for those of you towing horse floats. The driveway and parking spaces have been designed to make it easy unloading and loading your horses. We have a full circle driveway to reduce the stress of reversing with a horse float.
 
For those that are able to bring their horse/s on holidays, we have a 40m x 20m fenced sand/gravel mix horse arena for use and 8 assorted size paddocks with water, shelter and windbreaks. We also have small square hay bales for sale.
 
For the comfort and ease of guests with horses, you can view the happenings of the horse arena or see what they are up to in their paddock from the comfort of the 'Stringybark Cottage' lounge room.
 
*Please note: BYO horse - we do not have horses for hire

 
Visiting Horses
Our resident horses enjoy a relatively isolated environment and they are seldom exposed to other horses. We maintain a worming program and would appreciate it if visiting horses have been recently wormed.

We will be able to advise you of the local tracks and roads around the area or a ride to The Village Green cricket ground where you may be lucky to watch a game of cricket. There are also tracks through Mt Disappointment State Forest to explore (maps provided) or you may feel happy just to use our horse arena for some great ground work or priceless quality time with your horse.
 
The Great Victorian Rail Trail is the longest rail trail in Australia which runs from Tallarook, on the Hume Highway all the way to Mansfield with an offshoot to Alexandra. The whole trail is approx 134km long. The closest access to the rail trail from our homestead is at Kerrisdale which is only a 10 minute drive down the road. You will be able to either ride your horse, cycle or just enjoy a country hike.

"We had a wonderful time at Halls on Falls Homestead.  We didn't get a single complaint from anyone.  The accommodation was absolutely perfect for a pony club camp with the horse arena and swimming pool being the favourite with the kids (which is only available during summer months).  The beds were extremely comfortable and the furnishings were absolutely lovely. 

 

The riding was safe and both challenging and enjoyable.  The first morning we rode up McMahons Rd with all of our riders (aged 8 - 17) and all of the kids and ponies coped really well.  We used 4WD support vehicles in front and behind the younger riders in case of other traffic but we didn't encounter any.

 

In the afternoon we rode to The Pavillon at the Village Green Cricket Ground. This was a lovely ride with plenty of places for the riders to trot and canter. 


After yet another lovely evening enjoying the pool and surrounds, the second day was spent by our riders exploring the local area at their own pace.  I even joined my 2 girls on a ride and had a wonderful time. 

I would highly recommend your accommodation for other clubs, families or couples.  The horse fascilites were safe and practical and the accommodation extremely comfortable.  Thank you Lisan and Peter for such a wonderful time!"
