Tour operator

Buckle Up Bushrides offer High Country horseriding at its best. Discover the beauty and history of Victoria's High Country with an unforgettable horseback adventure with hosts Paul and Shelly.

Paul Skvor is the great, great grandson of William Mitchell Lovick who settled the district in 1871. His grandfather, Jack Lovick began horseback riding tours in the 1960′s and today, the tradition still lives on.

Paul's partner Shelly, has been bush riding since a child and first came to the area after doing a horse safari with Jack's son Charlie back in 2000. Paul and Shelly rode for Charlie Lovick for many years before being encouraged to branch out on their own. The Man from Snowy River movies was filmed throughout the area with Paul's family playing a big part in the making of these movies.

Operating out of the Boorolite Valley, Buckle Up Bushrides have tours catering to riders of all levels. From beginner through to experienced horsemen, their horses have wonderful temperaments and are hardy bush horses.
