    RIDE: The ride will be in undulating to hilly country, on bush roads and hopefully some bush bashing. It is good underfoot, but you may need boots if barefoot, you know your horse best. We plan to ride for about 2 hours or so, have a saddle bag lunch on track, and then a shorter ride back to the floats. These details are subject to change depending on weather. Please arrive about 9.00 am to register and saddle up for a punctual ride out. Horseless Muster @ 9:45 am - Ride Out Time @ 10.00am sharp.
