Horses for Courses Charity Charity Ride for Busk Kids
September 30 - October 6
The H4C Charity Ride for Bush Kids happens in The Red Center during October each year. Riders make their way through the spectacular MacDonnell Ranges, camping under the stars for 5 fantastic nights and finishing up in Alice Springs.
There are always lots of afternoon/evening activities including good ol’ fashion hospitality, camp-oven cook ups, campfire sing-alongs, boot-scooting boogie, bush poetry, parks and wildlife talks, night walks, horsehusbandry and riding tips and about as much fun along the way as we can muster up along the way.
Horses for Courses raises awareness of the issues Aussie Bush Kids and their families face, some of these include:
~ Social isolation implications effecting mental health, social and emotional well-being
~ Educational inequities including distance education challenges & boarding school blues
~ Insufficient access to healthcare & specialist services,
~ Inadequate access to reliable services such as telecommunication & road networks
~ and the pressures which come with climatic uncertainties and unrelenting drought!
We’d love to have you join us for a week of wonderful horse riding fun. To have the opportunity to make wonderful new friends and recharge the batteries by getting back to nature through the Majestic MacDonnell Ranges; aprox 100kms through the Central Australian National Park.
