All Volunteers to Action Stations for Widgee's Endurance Ride

Article excerpt

Lynlie Cross


ENDURANCE riders will be heading to Widgee next weekend, July 28-29 to take part in the annual Widgee Endurance Ride which covers many kilometres of spectacular terrain in and around the local area.

There are two rides, the 80 km and the 40 km. Trails take horse and rider through the Brooyar Forest, private properties and country roads. Horses are closely monitored by vets from Gympie, the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.

Volunteers from the local fire brigade will be out in force, manning radio check-points, ensuring the safety of horses and riders.

Scouts from Gympie's Nashville group will be at gateways to make sure they are open, while more volunteers will converge on the Bushman's Kitchen, keeping everyone well fed and watered over the weekend.
