Yep it started on Saturday October 17th and it finished on Saturday October 24th and sad to say – it is to be the last “The Crackin’ Cancer Three Waters Horse Trail Ride” – I’m trying to continue it though in 2016 fingers crossed, I just need an ATHRA Club to work with.
Steve Langley along with the assistance of many others including trail leaders Alison and Jo made the week a success even though numbers were down – hey we still had a ball!! I even trained a band “The 1 Finger Bandits” Laurie, Marshal & Roslyn Lindsay the wife of the late great Reg Lindsay – and they thought they couldn’t learn, I showed them 🙂
I’m sitting in Aunty Winne(bago) up at Glen Innes typing this and waiting for dawn to arrive so that I can make the final 10k dirt road trip to Three Waters High Country Holidays (you don’t want to try it in the dark in a motorhome – very narrow, tight bends and skippys)
Yep tomorrow Saturday October 17th it starts and continues thru to Saturday October 24th and sad to say – I believe this will be the last “The Crackin’ Cancer Three Waters Horse Trail Ride” – I hope I’m wrong about that.
I’ve spent most of the day packing and then driving so this will be a short story rather than a book or volume suffice to say if you are around try and get out to Three Waters as it truly is as some say ‘a slice of heaven’ or as others say ‘gods country’ me I just think its fan bloody tastic country!
What a week – Horses, Country Music & Raising Cash, thats why this blog is late…
It was an outstanding success – the 5th Annual Cumberland Trail Horse Riders Club Crackin Cancer Charity Ride. It was held from Sep 26th thru to Oct 3rd 2015 and I reckon it could have gone for longer – there was even a fancy dress night (photos near the end).
I arrived on the Friday around dinner time after battling traffic all the way plus rain, but it was worth it cause the reception was great and on the Saturday morning it was fine weather and everybody pitched in to help me unload my equipment and then I set up and yes started playing on the Saturday night and then Sunday started the horse riding after some posed in their new shirts…
