3 Day Rodeo Ride Weekend
This ride is a great way to spend a long weekend ….. horse riding by day, rodeo by night!! We have selected some fantastic trails right here in the Merrijig area for you to enjoy while you take in the views and tackle real bush tracks and varying terrain on one of our experienced mountain horses.
Your adventure starts when you arrive at our property on the Friday night (eat on the way or bring some dinner with you). It doesn’t matter what time you get here, just make yourself at home and get ready for 3 days of fun! The following day starts with a light breakfast around 8.00am while the Tru-Blu team gets your horses ready. After breakfast is done & dusted, you will get to mount up and head out the back of our property and straight into the bush where we make our way through kangaroo and deer country as we climb towards the base of Mt Timbertop. After a rest for a bbq lunch break, we wind our way down Wild Dog Creek track as we head back to base in time for you to have a rest up before the Merrijig Rodeo that night. We will transport you to the Rodeo grounds and provide you with a chair for your comfort during the event. Entry into the rodeo is included in the ride price so all you need to do is find a good viewing spot and plonk yourself down for the night. A selection of food is available for you to purchase at the venue along with alcohol (you are also able to BYO snacks and soft drinks). At the conclusion of the event, we will transport you back to our property where you can party on or hit the sack to get some rest after a long day!
Day 2 begins with a later start (figuring you may need a sleep in!) so brekky will be served at 9am. We will aim at a 10.30am ride out as we hit more of the secluded Merrijig trails and venture around areas made famous in the Snowy River movies. After riding for a couple of hours, we will take a break where a full lunch and refreshments will be provided. After lunch, it’s more horseback trekking along the trails as you take in the amazing sights that Merrijig has to offer. Once you arrive back at our property, there’ll be time for a drink (or 2, 3, 4 …) and relax for the night with a hearty roast dinner served by a roaring campfire.
Day 3 ….. after 2 days of riding and 2 nights of socializing you’ll probably need a sleep in so we’ll have another late brekky and then a shorter ride for the morning down to the Merrijig pub in time for lunch (buy your own food & drinks). After a long lunch break, we will splash back through the river and along the trails homeward bound! We will be back by mid arvo so you have plenty of time to unwind before hitting the road to head back home.
