    KDTRC Bullarto Ride, January Ride hosted by Amy G.

    Come and sign in with AMY 

    Ride – We will cross the Daylesford Trentham Rd enter the Wombat State Forest, weaving our way through single trails and overgrown logging tracks. There will be a long hill climb up Babbington Hill, with a chance for a breather at the top before descending to the east down the hill to Lyonville Springs for lunch. Lunch will be provided (picnic lunch of build your own roll, cold drink, and slice). We will then ride around the base of Babbington Hill, taking the opportunity to have a long trot and canter. We’ll ride a short distance along Baddington Rd (back road) before reentering the bush for some single trail to Bullarto Reservoir and then back to the floats.  

    Conditions – A mixture of smooth tracks, with some sections where it’s rocky underfoot. Make sure your horse is shod (on all hooves), or booted as my barefooted fellow found the rocky sections a bit ouchy. This is 20kms with an epic hill climb, and some trotting later in the ride. So make sure your horse is well conditioned. Bullarto is always a number of degrees cooler than everywhere else in the district so it’s a nice location for a summer ride even if it’s really hot. If it’s a Code Red fire day the ride will be cancelled. There’s no mobile reception at the Bullarto Hall, so please let me know if you can’t make it the night before the ride. There is mobile reception on the ride though.  

    Bring –Bring a drink bottle, a halter and lead to tie up with at lunch, some hay band to tie up to as the trees are quite big, and $5 for lunch.
