AMATEUR? I DEFINITELY AM BUT GAINING MORE EXPERIENCE EVERYTIME I PARTICIPATE IN BREAKAWAY’S VERY WELL ORGANISED TRAIL RIDES.
THE WEEKEND OF 12TH AND 13TH JULY WAS A AWESOME EXPERIENCE, BECAUSE IT WAS A FIRST FOR TEEMBURRA DAM, THANKS TO THE DEDICATION OF MIKE TEUWSEN FOR ASKING AND ORGANISING THE RIDE WITH PROPERTY OWNER BARRY FINN.
WHAT BREATH TAKING LANDSCAPE.
FOR THOSE WHO BRAVED FRIDAY NITE CAMPING, I BELIEVE THEIR WINTER WOOLIES WERE PUT TO GREAT USE WHEREAS SATURDAY NITE WAS WARM WITH A BIG BONFIRE AND HOMEMADE DAMPER. SATURDAY MORNING, TRAILRIDERS SLOWLY ARRIVED AND THE RIDE BEGAN AT 12.30PM.
WITH 22 RIDERS HEADING OUT FOR A 10KM RIDE, THIS IS WHAT CHIEF MIKE TEUWSEN TOLD US.
LAST TIME I CHECKED 10KMS ON HORSEBACK WAS AROUND A 2 HOUR RIDE, 4 HOURS LATER, WE ARRIVED BACK AT CAMP.
GOOD ON YOU TUES. HOWEVER, WHAT A RIDE, MANY MANY, MANY HILLS AND BEAUTIFUL SCENERY AND FRESHWATER CREEKS WAS WHAT GREETED US.THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE AND MUSCLE TESTING ON BOTH HORSE AND HUMAN BODY.
EXCELLENT COUNTRY FOR A BEAUTIFUL TRAIL RIDE AND EVEN SOME ENDURANCE RIDE TRAINING. SUNDAY DAWNED WITH,WOULD YOU BELIEVE SPRINKLES OF MUCH NEEDED RAIN WHICH I THINK CAUSED A FEW RIDERS TO LEAVE BUT MORE ARRIVED , SO THE RIDE BEGAN AND WEATHER WAS COOL MUCH TO THE HORSES RELIEF. ANOTHER 4 HOURS RIDE,DOING THE LOOP AGAIN BUT BACKWARDS THIS TIME, 2 FOUR WHEEL DRIVES MET US FOR SMOKO WHICH NOEL COWAN BOILED THE BILLY FOR US.
DON’T YOU JUST LOVE THE COUNTRY. ANYWAY MANY THANKS FOR THOSE WHO ORGANISED THE RIDE,EVERYONE KNOWS WHO THEY ARE CAUSE THEY LOVE DOING IT.
