2021 Great Western Pleasure Ride

Contact 2021 Great Western Pleasure Ride

We're back again in 2021, or at least let’s cross our fingers & toes and hope we are!

As many of you know, we regrettably needed to cancel our 2020 event due to the ongoing restrictions surrounding COVID-19. We hope all of our friends out there are doing okay and sticking together through all of this too! It's been a tough 12-months for many of us. Nevertheless, we’re determined to try our best and return for 2021 and put on our 17th event with a real bang.

Please keep in mind that things are obviously still very much in the air when it comes to event regulations and we don’t yet know what October will look like for us. Therefore, please ensure you read our Cancellation & Refund Policy on our website before booking so you’re across what measure we may need to take if circumstances change over the coming months.

The other update we need to share is that we're reducing our capacity from 200 down to 150 for now. We had planned to do this anyway following our 2019 event, however due to current circumstances, it's highly likely we won't be able to accommodate a larger group. Our event usually sells out anyway so please get in early to avoid missing out. We will open a waitlist once all 150 tickets have sold as well so we can offer spots to those who might not be able to attend closure to the event date.

We're looking forward to creating another successful weekend for everyone who joins us this year. We missed seeing you last year! If you have any questions or concerns please reach out and bear with us whilst we confirm arrangements over the coming weeks and months.
When: Friday 8th - Sunday 10th October 2021
Where: Great Western Racing & Recreation Reserve, Great Western VIC 3374
Tickets: $210 per Adult Rider - $160 per Junior Rider (16 years & under) - $120 per Non-Rider
Please Bring: A sound, fit horse or pony, yards (something your horse is familiar with and is also safe and secure), bridle, saddle, halter, lead rope, horse feed, water buckets, approved helmet (must be worn at all times when mounted), plate, bowl, cup, cutlery, tea towel, camping gear (tent, swag etc), clothing suitable for all seasons. Please note - no holding yards will be provided by the committee.
Gold Coins: Please ensure you bring gold coins with you for the showers ($1 = 1 minute). Whilst we would normally turn-off the coin-operated mechanism on the shower facilities, it is causing a lot of technical faults for the installed systems which usually require maintenance after the event. Instead of increasing the ticket prices by $25 this year, we have decided to only increase the tickets $10 and ask people to bring coins for the showers. Thank you for your understanding.
Provided: All meals (2x dinners, 2x lunches, 2x breakfasts), toilet & shower facilities, entertainment, and two amazing trail rides. BYO permitted. If we can’t offer a catered event (potential COVID event regulation) we will let you know in advance and refund a portion of your ticket monies to accommodate.
Keep up to date by following us on Facebook and visiting our website closer to the event date. We’ll also endeavour to send those who have registered email communications regarding any significant updates we need to share.
