    KDTRC Hepburn Springs Pub Ride hosted by Amy G

    Where – This ride is being lead by Amy G (0408 342 990), riding out from Ajax Rd, Daylesford just before the Daylesford Tip 

    When – 9.45 horseless muster for 10am ride out.  

    Come and sign in with AMY 

    Directions – As you come into Daylesford, go through the roundabout in the centre of town (with the pub on the corner and continue down the Midland Hwy heading towards Ballarat. As you start heading out of town, down take the first RIGHT into Ajax Rd. Go along Ajax Road for about 200 metres and you will see a clearing on the left just after the last house. This is where we will park. I will be there to direct people. If you get to the Tip, you’ve gone too far.  

    Ride – We will ride down into Tipperary Springs, cross the creek and head into the bush. We will climb up some hills and down some back roads and then come into Hepburn via the Blow Hole Track. We will tie our horses up in the paddock next to the pub (it’s not fully enclosed so I’ll set up an electric fence around them just in case. The Old Hepburn Hotel has a full menu on Sundays but does a great Sunday Roast for 20 bucks! We’ll linger as long as we like at the pub and take a different, and shorter way back to the floats that should only take an hour. So a leisurely 3 hours of riding, 2 before lunch, 1 after, with plenty of time for eating and drinking.  

    Conditions – Mostly hilly trails through bush, creeks and gullies. Some single trail, some logging tracks, and a bit of dirt roads. There’s some hill work and two creek crossings but this ride is suitable for all riders including beginners. There’s a very small amount of road riding at the beginning of the ride to get down to Tipperary Springs, and about 50 metres of road riding near the pub but they are not busy roads. Some rocky terrain so boots or shoes recommended.   

    Bring – Rug for you horse for lunch break which will be picked up and returned to the floats by James, a drink bottle, halter and lead.  

    Nominations/RSVP –. Amy via call or text message on 0408 342 990. You can say you are coming on the FB event but you MUST confirm via text message due to bookings at the pub. I do not want to stuff them around. Any non-ATHRA members must do the on-line Day Membership before they turn up to the ride.... see the ATHRA website for details.
