We are a group of friends based in and around Boolarra who ride together, weekly, monthly whenever it takes our fancy usually anywhere in the Gippsland area. Gippsland trail riding and indeed south Gippsland are premier areas for horse trail riding. We are out to enjoy our horses and each others company both locally and further around the district when the mood takes us. We ride with mutual respect for each other in mind and the keyword is fun. Many of us are ATHRA club members, South Gippsland Horse Trail Riding Club Inc, in particular is one of the premier clubs in Gippsland and more are listed here.

Ride: Foster – Fish Creek Rail Trail & return Sunday 11th October
Ride Leader: Sue Thorburn
We will meet near the old Foster railway station;
Turn into Foster from the South Gippsland Highway. Turn left into Station Rd ( IGA Supermarket on the left, pub on the right). Go past the hospital, and over the old rail crossing (there’s a white picket fence there) and turn left into Lower Franklin Rd (or it might be called Lower Toora Rd). About 100 metres along, just past the gravel yard, there is a driveway on your left and we will park in here.
Ride out is 9.30am
This will be mainly a slow ride, of medium difficulty with some quite steep parts, and shoes are optional. We will divert from the Rail Trail to take in Mt Nicoll (bring your camera, breathtaking view from up there!) and ride through farmland on the way to Fish Creek. You can buy lunch, coffee etc there or bring your own saddlebag lunch.
If you plan to come along, please let me know via phone 5997 5510 or email email@example.com or on the SGHTRC facebook page.
