Be a part of Australia’s premier representative body for Trail Horse Riders.
Ride with confidence when you have an ATHRA club membership.
ATHRA provides members with great value and benefits.
For some this weekend spans across 4 days, some only have the weekend and a day off Tuesday. The club has booked Whinbury Hill for the 4 days so those with the extra time can stay and enjoy themselves until the Tuesday if they wish.
Anglesea has been a popular riding area for horse riders for quite a few years now and with such a great private venue available, RCTHRC can take advantage of this great spot. We are fortunate to be able to offer some lovely costal/bush riding which will be led by the property host, Gill Beaurpaire.
We will have the use of a large shed with undercover BBQ area. The shed also has a kitchen (no fridge) and dining area & also flushing toilets and showers, although water usage needs to be kept to a minimum (solar power is now hooked up, however hairdryers are not allowed). You will need to bring everything for both you & your horse, water for horses & campers is supplied. There are 8 single beds available (first in best dressed) and plenty of room for camping. There are several large yards (Manure to be removed from these yards) available as well as ample space to put up electric yards & plenty of trees for night-lining. There will also be a large communal paddock.
You can arrive Friday afternoon if you wish.
The club will be providing a BBQ dinner on the Saturday night.
On Sunday night we will book the local pub for those who would like to have dinner there (own cost).
The riding terrain is undulating & sandy with some minimal road work to get to the areas of the bush we will be riding in.
