Kirkhill - 29 March 2015  -  Remember clocks change Saturday night

            

Kirkhill Landranger 38,  Ref. NJ866126.  Venue at Kirkhill Industrial Estate
Description

A good early season ride with variety of terrain and some gentle climbs.

Balloting is unlikely to be necessary.

We have 3 distances: 28 or 20 Km Pleasure/Training and a 11.5 Km Taster route. 

Different venue than last year but still hard standing.

Mixture of Forest and farm tracks and up to 5% tarmac. 

It is possible that construction of the new Aberdeen bypass will disrupt this ride and result in last minute route changes including a small risk of cancellation.

For those who are new to the sport there will be help and advice on hand to lead you through the preparation with your horse on the day and your admin for the ride.
