Newtonmore on the Weekend of Fri 5th to Sun 7th June
The Golden Hoof Ride (Scotland) will hopefully be an annual event with the first one in 2015. It will be for people and horses who enjoy long distance riding or carriage driving to share some time together. It will run in the first week of June each year and will consist primarily of a social get together at the ending point.
It is recommended that people finish on the Friday before 6pm so a meal can be shared together that evening at 7:30pm. (Estimated Cost £10 per person and BYOB) The rest of the weekend's events will evolve in time as participants make recommendations. Rides can be linear or circular or whatever you like and as long or as short in duration as people want - we will try and avoid rules as the most important part is sharing experiences with fellow minded people.
For 2015 the "Ride" will finish at Newtonmore Riding Centre followed by a weekend of fun. (Meal at the stables Fri. night and probably "Fun Pony Games" on Sat. Morning, "Show and Tell" on Sat. afternoon and Meal & Ceilidh on Sat. night) - Corralling, Camping and Stabling will be available all weekend. Also teams can base themselves at NRC too and ride circular routes from base if they wish, but please organize with us first. The Trophy will go to the Team that is voted by other participants to have had the most fun etc. All welcome :-)
There will be a token entry fee of £10.00 per team and then we only ask for donations for anything else (camping, corralling, stabling, hay, etc) for the benefit of local charity "Cairngorms RDA Group" (Scottish Charity- SCIO - SC043835) which is based at NRC.
