Big October Ride
Big October Ride 2013 : Saturday 26th October
The Dayboro Trailriders will be running their 15th annual horse trail riding event the ‘Big October Ride’ on Saturday 26th October 2013.
2012 saw 210 horse and riders take part in a great day’s trail riding and evening of entertainment.
On offer is a 1 x 3hr ride or 1 x 7hr ride. It was an all new 7hr ride last year that headed out toward Lacey’s Creek. This ride turned out to be so popular that it will be run again.
Changes this year will be the Friday & Saturday evening format. With permission from the Rural Fireys both evenings will be casual and relaxed around the campfire. A licenced bar will be operating both nights. Friday night is $6.00 steak burger night with desserts at $3.00 a serve. Saturday evening live entertainment kicks off at 8pm until midnight .
Ride fees are $50 for visitors or $35 for TRA members. Fees cover your camping fees, insurance,
morning tea and lunch as well as Saturday night’s live entertainment. If you don’t ride but wish to be part of the evening it’s not a problem. $10.00 at the door will get you in.
Both rides are non-competitive and leisurely paced. Participants need to bring their own horse and
riding gear. There is no age limit on either riders or horses; however both will need to be fit enough and competent to take part. Riders 16 years & under will require a responsible adult or guardian. Riders 18 years & under must wear an approved riding helmet. Strictly no stallions, rigs or dogs.
Catering is definitely available across the weekend but only guaranteed if you pre book. Pre nominations are preferred.
This event has become avidly looked forward to, each year, by riders locally and further a field.
Previously we’ve been host to riders from the Brisbane suburbs, Ipswich; Toowoomba; Yarraman;
Gympie; Maryborough; Gold Coast and New South Wales. We look forward to seeing you all again & if you haven’t been before come along and see what all the fuss is about!
