Our Horses at Tunnel Ridge Ranch really are ‘LIVING THE DREAM’. When camps are in they take there clients on lovely walks through the Ewen Maddock Dam fire trails. Then when everyone goes home they race over to another paddock for a change of scenery. Maxlyn Flint our amazing Horse Program Manager and her team of faithful horse staff look after their every needl!
