Thanks to John Brady we will have excellent camping facilities which include toilets, showers and communal rotunda for dancing and BBQ’ing etc.
The club will be supplying a fantastic 2 course BBQ dinner on Saturday night and we’ll ride to the pub on the Sunday for lunch. All other meals will be BYO. Music and the usual entertainment of pole dancing will be available each night in the rotunda.
You will need to bring a portable yard for your horse, there is also a large communal paddock if you wish to use it. Water available for horses but due to limited supply no hosing of horses please. Please remember that this is a private property and we need to ensure that all manure and rubbish is picked up from yards, walk ways and camp areas. We will be riding through the Enfield State Park and surrounding plantations, terrain will be flat to slightly undulating and not too taxing for horse or rider.
