  • Discription

    Enquiries & Nominations to Alan Salter at or 0427 357 941


    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. 


    At the “Big Green Shed” In Fisher Rd, (off Ascot Rd), Creswick. (The shed is on the right a short distance from Ascot Rd turnoff.) Host John Austin has graciously opened his property. There is ample town water and a hose available for horses.


    The terrain will consist of undulating small hills and bush tracks, firm underfoot with a few stony sections, but suitable for well-conditioned bare foot horses. The proposed format is to ride for about 2 to 3 (more or less), then stop for a BBQ lunch on track, before returning to floats. The Club will provide the BBQ and the slight increase in ride fees will go towards costs. BYO water or other drinks, our support crew will be able to transport food, drinks and the Club BBQ.   

    Please arrive about 9.00 am to register and saddle up for the Horseless Muster @ 9:30 am

    Ride Out Time @ 10.00am sharp.
