The alpine region in New South Wales has always attracted nature lovers and thrill seekers, but the good life isn’t all above the clouds. Jindabyne is a local community with small town values, unique character and filled with a fabulous enduring history.
These are just some of the drawcards that drew Nev Barrass to the area 20 years ago. Nev owns Thredbo Valley Horse Riding - a stunning 2,800 acre private property with spectacular sub-alpine wilderness and offering some of the best accommodation in the Thredbo Valley.
The history of Thredbo Valley Horse Riding
Thredbo Valley Horse Riding was established in 1993 and is the premier destination for anyone wanting to take in the peace and tranquillity that the Australian Snowy Mountains has to offer.
Owned by husband and wife duo, Nev and Linda Barrass, Nev originally moved to the Snowy Mountains in 2003 to work for Thredbo Valley Horse Riding. It wasn't until 2007 that he jumped at the opportunity to buy the business.
Through years of love, sweat and tears - the business has continued to grow, as does the pairs' passion for their animals, which is brought home by Nev's belief that "riding in the picturesque Thredbo Valley is the best fun you can have!"
Offering everything from a child’s first pony ride, to catering to the seasoned accomplished riders and everything in between, you’ll be able to escape the hustle and bustle of city life as you ride through mountainous bushland terrain and open fields. Marvel at the incredible display of nature and see just how gentle their iconic bush horses are.
