    IMPORTANT NOTICE: On DAYS OF TOTAL FIRE BAN all rides are automatically cancelled. If extreme weather conditions are forecast for the day of a planned ride or event, it is your responsibility to phone the ride Coordinator to confirm if the ride is still proceeding, or if details have been changed. 


    Meeting at Kate and Ian Knox’s property at 1496 Buninyong-Mt Mercer Rd Grenville. There is ample room for float parking behind the barn, and room to turn around in the paddock. Riding will be at a leisurely pace through bush tracks similar to those at John Brady’s, (for those who know.)


    This is an easy leisurely “Nervous Nellies Ride” on undulating bush tracks in the Enfield Forest, suitable for barefoot riding. It is proposed to ride a loop for approximately 2 hours, return to the floats for lunch & socializing, then, for those who wish, perhaps a second shorter loop after discussions with riders. If weather conditions look to be unfavorable the ride will be postponed.

    Please arrive about 9.00 am to register and saddle up for a 10 am (sharp) ride out. 

    Horseless Muster @ 9:30 am  

    Ride Out Time @ 10.00am sharp.

    LUNCH: Lunch will be held back at the floats between legs.
