Getting feed in Tasmania - mainland competitors/crews

For all your horse feed requirements prior to arriving at the ride base at Santarena Park, Scottsdale, you will be able to pre-order what you need through one of our TQ18 Committee members, Pat Lamprey.

Pat lives a short distance from the ferry terminal and can have horse feed ready for pick up with purchases through Roberts Ltd. Pat will take your orders and discuss payment options. Give Pat a call on 0400125267 or email her at Lampreys46@bigpond.com

Agistment for non Tassie horses

Are you looking for a stopover point to rest your horse/s on the way to the TQ18?

We have decided to show some initiative and have put a request out through social media and local papers asking all farmers and small property owners with suitable paddocks available, to register their interest with a Tasmanian contact, Sonia Hodgetts. Sonia will pass on names and contact details of property owners to mainland riders on request so you can contact the property owners directly to discuss requirements and negotiate terms of agistment for your horse. Please note the negotiations are your responsibility and we would encourage you to ensure the paddock/s offered are safe and meet your requirements (perhaps a photo of the paddock/s might assist in this). Sonia is available on Facebook or by emailing Soniah@utas.edu.au .
