The Baird Family have been running award winning trail rides and packhorse expeditions since 1986 and now offer Spring Spur Stay hosted accommodation. The en-suites rooms are bright and spacious with private verandahs for you to enjoy beautiful views and gardens. Spring Spur Stay has been designed and built by the Baird’s using passive solar principals, maintaining a modern building but reflecting its High Country integrity in its design. The rooms can be made up into twin or kingsize beds. Our guests can immerse themselves into one of the many High Country experiences returning to the comforts of Spring Spur Stay. You could join a trail ride, horsemanship clinic, a bush walk to Fainter Falls, or decide on exploring one of our beautiful North East towns of Mt beauty, Bright Yackandandah or Beechworth.
The food at Spring Spur is a highlight. Seasonal menus, spring and summer salads, pizza, tapas, risottos, winter roast dinners and curries all served on the riders lounge long table.

Spring Spur, your country home away from home, overlooking Mount Feathertop, Mt Bogong summit and surrounding mountains, beautiful in every season.
Spring; the gardens are blooming, with jasmine, roses and budding fruit trees. Horses grazing rich clovers and ryes, shedding winter coats revealing a gleaming shine. It is the foaling season, so you may get to see a new born foal or meet the yearling foals from last year.
Summer; gleaming fit horses, fresh mountain streams, shady hammocks, veggie gardens abundant. High Country Pack Horse Adventures Adventures.
Autumn; the garden of deciduous trees filling the valleys with glorious colour. The North East, famous for its extraordinary light. Clear starry nights, snow gum trunks glow with shades of greens, orange and greys. Black Cockatoos descend from their mountain nests. Horses growing woolly coats, preparing for the coming winter. You can watch the herd of horses canter into the yards ready to be saddled in the stables, with steaming breath and pounding hooves, from your room or the big window of the rider lounge.
Winter; Wake in our cosy warm rooms to a sparkling frost, snow covered mountain views. You can rug up and ride the trails in wooly jumpers and oilskin coats (provided) on one day or spend a day on the slopes skiing.
Our Spring Spur Australian Stock Stud has been producing quality horses since 1989. All horses are trained using natural horsemanship philosophies, and are a pleasure to ride no matter what your level of experience. We do our best to match to each riders ability and the horses horse~an~ality.
Natural horsemanship is a part of our everyday practice although we can run lessons specific to children and incorporating grooming saddling and basic health care for the beginner horse rider.Inclusions
