HDARC Weekend Trail Ride at Narbethong

25th – 27th October, 2019

 Join fellow club members for a fabulous few days of comfortable camping and delicious camp cooking from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th October in Narbethong (between Healesville and Marysville).

The cost for the whole weekend from Friday night dinner to Sunday lunch (including saddle bag lunches out on the trail) will be $80 all inclusive. There is an option for people to join us for dinner on Saturday night and camp with Sunday breakfast for $55.00 per person.

The trail riding will be through some spectacular country on mostly undulating bush tracks but with some steep sections. Parts of the ride will be on the Bicentennial National Trail between Narbethong and Marysville.

 The rides will be lead by John Kasch, a dependable and very knowledgeable horseman and he will be supported by an accredited trail rider and club member, Cath Giles.

 The speed of the rides will depend on the trail conditions and the attending riders, but are likely to be mostly at a walk, with some opportunity for a trot and canter where suitable, but only if the group chooses to.

Track conditions are best suited to shod horses or at a minimum, booted barefoot horses (or riders carrying boots in case) as there are some rocky tracks.

 We will be enjoying our lunches while out in the bush, so riders will need to take headstalls and lead ropes.

 There are large sheds for socializing in the evening if the weather is inclement and log fires to keep warm. There is a Portaloo in camp but no shower facilities.

 Nothing compares to a great day in the saddle, returning to camp for drinks and delicious nibbles around the fire. Check out their website to tempt yourself: www.rusticflavors.com.au
