    Enquiries & Nominations to Alan Salter at or 0427 357 941



    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.

    VENUE: Meeting at Corindhap Recreation Reserve, Halls Road, Corindhap. From Ballarat travel along the Midland Highway to the Colac Road and turn right. Travel approximately 32 kilometres along Colac Road to HALLS ROAD and turn right, the Recreation Reserve is about 500 metres on the right-hand side. Floats will be parked at the Recreation Reserve, toilet facilities available and sufficient room for goosenecks. Our host for the day is Donna Watts.

    RIDE: This is an easy leisurely “Nervous Nellies Ride” of about 14 kilometres on gravel/sandy roads to Rokewood via the “Kuruc-a-ruc Trail”. Suitable for seasoned barefoot horses, but if in doubt your horse should be booted or shod. There will be a section of riding on a very wide verge for about 500 metres in a 60 KPH zone, but this is quite safe. Riders can take their own saddle bag lunch or purchase lunch and coffee/drinks at the Rokewood Store which has an array of hot food, sandwiches etc. The ride will return to floats after lunch by retracing the route along the “Kuruc-a-ruc Trail”.   

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

    Horseless Muster @ 9:45 am - Ride Out Time @ 10.00am sharp.

    LUNCH: Lunch will be at Rokewood (as above), or as decided by riders on the day.
