Mackies

Map: LR 29, Grid: 760329   Route- 15% tarmac, 85% fields.

General Information

Firstly, the reason the event is called the Mackies is because it is based at Mackie's near Inverurie.  Mr Mackie and his team including John Reid and David (farm manager) have been very helpful and patient. 


The route will involve a mixture of field margins, grassy tracks, some stoney tracks and minor road work.  Where there is any tarmac or indeed forestry track, there will be a cut verge of grass.  For the longer routes it will include 2 manned road crossings and the Southside Ride tracks, so for those riders that have never been there it will be a great introduction.

The ride is suited towards flat and sensitive soled feet so will be good for all horses.  There will be fab views from the hills over Bennachie, towards Huntly, Turriff and Fyvie.

 

All vetting will be at the venue.  Parking is hardstanding.  No water on site.

 

NO DOGS ON COURSE/DOGS ON LEADS AT ALL TIMES AT THE VENUE

PLEASE ENSURE ALL MUCK, HAY, ETC. IS REMOVED FROM THE VENUE.  THANK YOU!
