  • History

    The NTHRA is a 20 member or so strong club that meet monthly and usually ride on a Saturday and Sunday as many of our members have to travel and we like to make a "Weekend" of it. We camp out at the ride location and are generally self sufficient. Camp fee's often apply, there are usually between 4 to 8 riders per ride of varied experience, a packed lunch is required Sundays and it is strongly advises to carry water while in the saddle as some days are long 4-8 hrs and HOT. The terrain we cover is varied but often rough and steep, shoes can be helpful if your horse is not used to this. Our riders ages vary from 25-80 and our pace is slow with an occasional trot and canter, we have to be mindful of our distances traveled and not "blow" our horses out.

    There are many breeds of horses in the club from Coffin Bay ponies Quarter Horses to Standard Breeds,saddles also vary from English to Western comfort is a must for both horse and rider. Club fee's are $90.00 for Adults and are payable from Dec - Jan and take you through the whole financial year. $80.00 goes to insurance with ATHRA and $10.00 covers our administration and stationary costs.

    We have a programme on the ATHRA SA website our rides usually start at 2 pm Sat 10-11 am Sun, we also ride weather permitting please check prior to ride with conveynor . Day riders must be sponsered by a registered club member and will need to pay $35.00. 

    We have one Club Meeting a year and post out our memberships and programmes on request. We welcome any new riders and look forward to meeting new members. Greg Growden Club President
