  1. Hi everyone, just wondering whether there is anyone out there, like-minded and in love with horses who knows either a.) a good and accessible place to go and ride (living close to the CBD and currently still without a car) and/or b.) anyone who has a horse/s and needs an extra pair of hands to help over a random weekend here and there (or regularly - whichever suits you best). I've ridden pretty much all my life and am just looking to get back into the saddle - whether just for fun or perhaps even compete if someone needs their horse taken on a little. It's a long shot, but thought I'd post my interest on here and see if anyone can help. Many thanks!!! Maya :wub:

    Mountain Bike Riding in Australia

    [YOUTUBE]7YWIVDvAl2Y[/YOUTUBE] SUBMERGED in the Cairns rainforest, but just a few hundred metres from James Cook University, lies a playground only fit for the most courageous of adventurers. You won’t find any swing sets or slippery dips here. This playground is made of dirt and the fun can only be had on two wheels. The downhill mountain bike track is the piece de resistance of the area – starting at the top of a track only reachable by 4WD and spiralling down the hill in a controlled chaos kind-of-way. Only the most battle-hardened of riders can really attack it from start to stop. Then there is the mesmerising dirt bowl – a chiselled section of ground featuring vertical walls and intimidating sections that involve riders bridging large gaps just to earn the right to enter. Off to the side, a recently-built pump track provides some respite from the fear, but even its highly technical nature means riders must be switched on or risk being bucked like a rider on a bull as they negotiate every undulation. Cross country trails also litter the area – as they do the Far North in general – with almost 50 documented tracks open for riding. And the playground will star, along with mountain bike-friendly areas from Gordonvale to Kuranda, when Cairns’ own mountain bike festival Gravitate returns today. "We’re showing everyone that comes here that there ain’t no better place to ride," Cairns Mountain Bike Club president Frank Falappi said. "We’ll have some of our freaks come out for the dirt bowl but there are other events that normal riders can participate in as well." The freaks, including former world downhill champion Nathan Rennie, will be in action, but plenty of less-extreme events will cater for the average mountain biking enthusiast. "We’ll be having nightly street thrashes, mystery trail rides; all sorts of things to appeal to everyone," Falappi said. Rider and co-creator of the revamped facility, Reilly Hurst, sum-med it up well, before ripping down the downhill trail earlier this week. "What goes up must go down, and it’s a long way down," he said. "We have lots of tracks in the region and our tracks are notorious around Australia for being some of the steepest and toughest going around." "I’ve done this trail a lot of times, and it still scares me, every time." Action starts this afternoon with a day-night four-hour ride and a practice session under lights in the dirt bowl. Gravitate culminates in the final round of the local downhill series next Sunday.

    Horse Riding Schools

    Hi I am trying to locate a horse riding school in the Hills District for my daughter to attend. Does anyone know of any in the area? Many thanks Cara
  5. Hi, I am relocating to Buderim in Jan 11 and i am a keen Squash player, i am hoping to find a squash club to join, any info would be a great help, also OH likes to go horse riding is their any stables in the Buderim area. Thanks
  6. Hi, Is there anyone out there on the peninsula who has horses and would help my darling wife get back on her feet with her hobbies. In the uk she has 3 horses and they are her life so a move to Oz has been difficult for her as they have stayed there. She obviously misses the horses but misses the company of like minded friends and the social aspect as well. She has been trail riding but its not really the same, and at the moment we are unsure as to the future here and dont want to commit to another Horse as it is a serious undertaking. She would dearly love to help with the yard work in return for a ride out with someone and a natter and is extremely knowledgeable about horses and showing/ competing. We live at Mt Martha and would love to hear from anyone who could help. If your wondering why she has not done this post herself its because she has had a couple of disappointing experiences with people messing her about and she has almost given up on the situation. However, a happy wife makes for a happy husband!!! Thanks for reading and hopefully we will get a response. My number is 0419413604 Cheers Steve and Rach
  7. hello does anyone know if there are riding schools which are accessible by public transport from Brisbane (I am in Teneriffe). This one looks like it is WATTLE CREEK RIDING SCHOOL although they only do private lessons so could get a bit expensive. This one looks like it might be but doesn't say - Cherbon Waters Stunning Wedding Gardens and Horse Riding School i would like to go for weekly / fortnightly lessons and then hire a car on the odd weekends to go further afield for nice trail riding does anyone know of any / go to one?

    riding a bike

    Hope someone can help here..... I have held a full UK drivers license for more years than I would care to confess, but what motorbike does that entitle me to use in Victoria? We need two vehicles, but don't want to run 2 cars so we thought I could have a small bike for tootling to and from work etc. Could I ride a 125cc on a car license or would I have to take a test. And, would I be allowed to take a pillion passenger or would I need a test to do that?? Any knowledge gratefully received.. Thanks

    Riding in Sydney

    Hi all, just wondered if anyone can recommend any decent horse riding facilities in/out side of sydney. My family are spending 14 days in Sydney in December and I have promised my 7 year old we could go riding. We both ride reguarly at home and fancied a trek out somewhere. I have already looked at the Cent. park stables and could not believe how expensive they are!:shocked:. So if anyone can recommend somewhere give or take an hour or so' drive away I would be most grateful. Thanks.
