    Venue – “Mana Gums Camp Ground”, MT BECKWORTH, CLUNES  

    Enter via Mountain Creek Road (main entrance) off Keirces Rd. Turn right into Mana Gums Camp Ground at the gate. There is ample float parking in the Camp Ground. Please note that the road in and out is quite steep but is very manageable with 2 horses in a float with a 4 wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle. Two-wheel drive vehicles are not recommended.

    Ride – This ride will include meandering bridle tracks, and some dirt roads around the flats of Mt Beckworth. There are some rocky sections so barefoot horses will need boots. Some small hills around the base, steep inclines and declines if we ride the summit (weather dependant). There will be opportunity for some trotting and cantering, saddle bag lunch on track. Please note that this is not a Nervous Nellies Ride due to the terrain, but all members are welcome and will be accommodated for.  

    Facilities – Water is available for horses on track (a dam), but there is none at the Mana Gums Camp Grounds. We recommend you bring water for horses and yourself.

    Lunch – Saddle Bag lunch on track. 

    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.

    RIDE FEE: $2.00 All BSTHRC members. $5.00 all other ATHRA members & Day Members 

    Prospective Day Members should contact Alan Salter prior to registering on line, and please bring printout of your Day Membership to the trail ride.
