    NEXT ‘Green Beans’ RIDE: Daylesford Ride, March hosted by Amy Gross

    READ THIS BEFORE RSVP....Okay gang! Here’s the rules/guidelines for these extra ‘Green Beans & Nervous Nellies’ rides.

    There are limited numbers on these rides of around 6 riders not including the ride leader. Riders must be KDTRC members or prospective members. Priority will go first to those that are not yet able to go on our regular rides due to confidence issues, horse green etc. Then it will be those that go to our regular rides, but have a new or green horse that they are working that they have not bought on our regular KDTRC rides yet. Then it will go to those that have been on our regular rides, with this particular horse, but they have been having trouble. This will only be an issue if more than 6 people nominate to ride, and I will have to prioritise based on the above.  

    What the ride leader says – goes. Be prepared to be told to stop, slow down, get back behind the ride leader, give another horse some distance etc. I’m not being bossy, this is a learning experience for people and it needs to be respected.  

    Be prepared to be patient with other riders. We will ride to the ability of the most inexperienced horse/rider. We may have to stop, we may have to wait, and we may have to change our plans.  

    Think of these rides as a ‘schooling’ exercise for your horse. We may be changing locations amongst the group, doing a creek crossing, trying out taking horses past an obstacle like a scary bin, or a burnt out tree stump. We might spend some time at these things. 

    We may try different passes such as trot and canter in short controlled distances. We will only do this if everyone agrees to it and there will be no ‘peer pressure’.  

    Expect that other people’s horses may not behave, especially the Green Beans. You are all in the same boat be patient and forgiving, everyone will be doing their best.  


    Where: Ajax Road, Daylesford. Drive through Daylesford towards Ballarat along the Midland Hwy, as you begin heading down the hill, Ajax Road is the first on the Right. Turn into Ajax Road, drive about 300 metres and park on the left just before the Daylesford Tip. Look for the floats, I’ll be there at 9am.  

    When: Sunday 4th March, 9.45am horseless muster for a 10am ride out. 

    Come and sing in with Amy 

    Ride: Undulating bush tracks and single trail between Daylesford and Hepburn in a loop back to the floats. Approximately 10kms, about 2 hours of riding at a walk.

    Conditions: Bush tracks, shoes or boots recommended. Hilly tracks at times so bring a breastplate.  

    Bring: Drink bottle.  

    Nominations/RSVP: Amy through the Facebook Event or text message on 0408 342 990. If you nominate for this ride you MUST commit to attending because of limited numbers, if you say you’re coming and then don’t turn up, someone will miss out so please make sure you can come before nominating. I will confirm your place on the ride at least one week beforehand.
