This trail is possibly the easiest going of all the riding trails. However a reasonable amount of fitness is still required by the rider and horses are to be fit and shod (or boots) as the surface is stony.  There are two stopovers where we spent two nights at each.  If people wish to shift floats etc its up to them to organise.

The shirts for Cromwell 2012 - going back to basic's $35

    Hi Jane, Thanks for returning my call last week, My Friend and I are hoping to be registered for your trail by next weekend. At the moment we are still looking for a float, not too worried yet still a few months to get sorted:)
