KDTRC Greendale lead by Garry Fischer
Where - This ride is being lead by Garry Fischer (0400640433) and will be leaving from the paddock (on your right hand side just before the creek crossing), approximately 1 km down Brady Lane, Greendale.
When - 10am sharp ride out time.
Directions – Brady Lane is situated opposite the Greendale Hotel, so if you are coming from Trentham on Greendale / Trentham Road, turn right at the roundabout and follow the signs. If you are coming from Ballan on the Ballan / Blackwood Road, turn left at the roundabout and again follow the signs. If you are coming from Melbourne / Bacchus Marsh area on the Greendale / Myrniong Road, just go straight through the roundabout and follow the signs.
Sign in – COME & SEE JULIE TO SIGN IN.
Ride – This is a great ride in the State Forest with some very pretty areas, lots of undulating terrain (so don’t forget your breastplates and cruppers).
Saddle bag lunch will be at an old mine site. The duration of this ride is about 4 hours. The pace will not be fast but there are lots of obstacles, creek crossings, undulating terrain, etc.
Conditions – Mostly hilly single trail through bush, creeks and gullies. This is a really special ride and not one to be missed however, this is not suited for beginner riders or horses as there are some tricky creek crossings and areas where we will be negotiating obstacles. It is also important that your horse is fit enough for a good 4 hour ride of hilly terrain, so please don’t bring horses that have just been sitting in the paddock.
Bring - Bring a drink, saddle bag lunch, halter and lead for tie up at the mine.
