SUNDAY, 20 JULY 2008
HER - 6693

I was told it’s time for a trail ride…at Marcel’s! So, here it is, back by popular demand for our July activity, a guided trail through Marcel’s property, “Timber Tops”. As previously, there are two rides for the day with a BBQ lunch in between. Riders may choose a group that suits their comfort levels…
either a relaxing scenic tour of the property and its wildlife or a more challenging ride over the large ranges with beautiful views of Mt. Palerang and Lake George. Both groups will return to the shearing sheds for a BBQ lunch together. After lunch Marcel will take both groups on another trail ride where we can all enjoy each others company and take in the spectacular views. Should it be desired, the afternoon ride also has the chance to split into faster or slower groups along the way. Please indicate when you register which morning ride you would like to do. We will sort out the afternoon ride at lunch.

HOW MUCH? For special guided trail rides through “Timber Tops” the cost will be $10 for a BRC member, $20 for a
non-BRC, but current EFA member (proof required) or $35 for neither BRC or EFA member (this fee covers day insurance and will be paid to the EFA on your behalf). Pay on the day, prior to riding. Sunday, 20 July… Please arrive at the shearing sheds by 9.00 AM to ride out at 10.00 AM The ride will leave promptly at 10am – please do not be late as we must leave on time in order to fit everything in.



Getting to Marcel’s Place
Marcel’s property “Timber Tops is located approximately 10.5kms out of Bungendore on the Kings Highway. You will need to travel on the Kings Highway past Marcel’s school of riding on the left (number 3582 – approx 9 kms from the railway crossing in Bungendore). Continue on the Kings Highway, past his cattle yards and on to the overtaking lanes going uphill. At the very top of the overtaking lane look out for a sign “Mulloon Creek Natural Farms” on the right - at this point exactly you will need to turn left into the property “Timber Tops”. Please prepare yourself for the left hand turn as you are ascending the overtaking lane. Once you have turned left into “Timber Tops” please continue along the dirt road for approximately 1.5kms until you come to the shearing sheds on your left. Please enter through the gate and park your float.


Remember we are having a BBQ lunch so please bring some meat of your choice and a small salad if you wish. The shearing sheds have small yards where you can keep your horse whilst eating. There is also fresh tank water for both you and your four legged friend. Don’t forget the usual saddlery equipment, water bucket, sponge & rain gear in the event the weather turns.
