Horse Designed by a Committee Oct 2005
They say a camel is a horse designed by a commitee. I reckon they deserve better than that and so does regular rider with Bogong Horseback Adventures Jill Pickering who took to riding of a different sort last April. Jill has always enjoyed the mobility horses offer her, and a chance to climb mountains. Now she has crossed deserts, spending 5 days with Phil Gee from William Creek in outback South Australia. Jill reports her trusty mount Mr Wobbles probably thought he had met his match. Phil is passionate about his patch of Australia and his animals, so rather than consult a committee, just choose one of Phil’s tours if you are planning an outback camel experience.
Meanwhile Steve has spent some of this winter working on tour with Andrew Dwyer of Diamantina Tour Company, traversing some spectacular remote areas of Australia in the saddle of his Toyota Landcruiser. From the Halls Creek to Wiluna on the Canning stock route, Yalara to Coober Pedy in the tyre tracks of Len Beadell and Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria in the footsteps of Burke and Wills the experience is always a blast.
Well done Jill, and anyone looking for winter tour activities when our mountains are covered with snow can get more information from our web site.
