    Once again we are going to John Brady’s property at LOT 72 Grubbed Road, Enfield. There is ample room for camping with horses, with communal paddock available if you do not wish to erect your own yards. Sufficient room for goosenecks too. Members are welcome to attend for the Saturday dinner only, and/or ride on either day, but nominations indicating your intentions and any special dietary requirements are required for catering purposes. Hot showers and toilet facilities are available, as well as a sheltered gazebo for socializing and meals. The Club will provide Saturday’s night’s dinner and Sunday’s breakfast, expertly prepared by Hans and his happy helpers. The club welcomes ATHRA members from other clubs who have ridden with us during the year. Please remember to bring a camp chair for the dinner.

    NOTE: All dogs must be suitably restrained at all times. PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOG.  


    Members (and families) can arrive on Friday afternoon and set up camp, a casual ride will be arranged. Saturday will involve a full day’s ride with saddle bag lunch, commencing about 10.30am so please arrive in time to saddle up and register. The ride will be followed by drinks and nibbles before the sumptuous Christmas dinner. Participants are required to provide all personal food and horse feed etc., other than the Saturday night dinner and Sunday’s breakfast. There will be a very easy ride conducted on Sunday morning before lunch and packing up. The Club will be conducting a raffle/s at the camp with great prizes.
