HOW TO ENTER

Entries are now open via trybooking at https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=548350&

A late fee of  30% applies from the night before the ride opens (see NSWERA prenom refund rules).  We will accept entries for the introductory rides on Sunday but would prefer not to.  Riders are asked to scan the booking form and send or email details to Maxine so that we can pr-enter details into the data base.  Non NSWERA members are asked to send us details about their horse (age, sex, breed etc). 

 

THE TRACK

All rides will utilise tracks in the Brindabella National Park and/or on private land and in Uriarra Forest. The terrain is more or less hilly with the tracks being mainly forestry tracks that are largely smooth but have some rocky stretches. There are no bitumen surfaces in this ride. Booting of barefoot horses is recommended for all distances longer than 13 km as the ground can be abrasive when dry.

Due to the hilly terrain, all horses participating should have a base level of fitness, even for the shorter rides. The intermediate elevator ride requires a reasonably fit horse and the 80 km ride a fit horse. While it is possible to complete the 80km ride with a novice horse, if taking it slowly and steadily, it is not an ideal ride for such a horse due to the hilly terrain, particularly in the first leg.

 

RIDE BASE INFORMATION
Brookvale is a no frills campsite in a picturesque valley with a fresh water creek running through it.  Facilities are basic, with bush and hire toilets and horse water available.

You will need to bring your own drinking water.

 

CATERING

Basic BBQ food will be available from Saturday lunchtime to Sunday afternoon.  Please bring your own utensils and take your rubbish home with you.
