The Great Kilkiven Horse Ride!

Ok so ever since i found out about the great kilkiven horse ride about 5 years ago i have wanted to participate in it! Now this year it is on on the 18th of april. I was going to go in it with my horse chucky but he had a problem with his feet about 5 months ago and they are taking longer than expected to heal, so i cant go in it with him. I want to go in it with my other horse banjo but im just not sure what i should do. I have never had any intention of taking banjo so its a new thing in my mind haha. Banjo is reliable, safe and i have no doubt that he will have a ball and i know he will be able to do the track easy as (the trail i want to take is 30km long). The only thing thats holding me back is that he is a bit uncomfortable and it goes for 30km!!! And he is known to kick and buck at other horses if they get too close but this shouldnt be a problem if i tie a red ribbon to his tail. Im pretty sure i am going to go for it but i just wanted to see what every one else thought.
here is the web site so you can all check it out for your self

thanks in advance every one!!!

What do you mean by Banjo being uncomfortable?? Gait??

Yea im pretty sure im going to go. It will be so much fun! and an amazing experience! I olny live a few hours away! where abouts are you? Im in Blackbutt.
Banjo is just really bouncy. ive always said he is a cross between an elephant and a kangaroo! haha!!! Hes not too bad though, i just wanted to go on my other horse chucky who is really comfortable and smooth. but oh well, it will still be really fun on banjo!

oh what a bummer. and our trailer is broken! the ramp wont shut, wood got wet and swelled (old float). so until we got that fixed i cant go any where either! If its not fixed by the great kilkevin ride i am going to use a friends trailer.

oh really! thats so cool! there are endless trails here too (state forest). but nothing spectacular really. there are parts that are like a rainforrest but most of it is just bush or pine trees. Its pretty good though. When my float gets fixed ill definatly give you a yell! that would be so cool if we rode together HAHA!! im guessing your name is Katie? im Cassy. and if you dont mind me asking, how old are you? im 18. lol

now the kilkiven ride, i am definatly going as long as i can find some one to go with. maybe you should come with me katie! haha. but there is jsut the problem with moving your horse ive been working with banjo and he isnt really that uncomfortable. Im getting use to it haha! I hope i find someone to come with me! I recon it would be so much fun!
