HORSE lovers in Nyora have joined forc-
es to promote safety around horses and
lobby the council for better trails in South
The Nyora Horse Lovers Group formed
when residents were finding local roads dan-
gerous to ride on. A minority of drivers, and
the size and quality of the roads, made rid-
ing unsafe, member Shona Lynch said.
“Some drivers have been quite abusive and
deliberately speeding past.
“Instead of sitting back and thinking about
it, we thought we should look into it.
“There are plenty of places, if they were
fixed up, you could ride on without having to
go down the roads. ”
A shared path from the local football
ground to Davis Street was recently locked
to prevent pedestrian access. Member Mick
Felton said the group was told horses and
motorbikes had damaged the track.
“Horses are now required to use alter-
native routes, meaning at times some are
forced out onto main roads,” Mr Felton said.
Those roads can vary from speed limits of
40 km/h to 100 km/h. There have been three
incidents since February. But the group is
working with the Nyora Recreational Reserve
Committee on a solution.
“The problem with these incidents is that
horses are unpredictable, as most animals
can be, and by drivers having little to no
tolerance for horses and riders, it is only a
matter of time before someone gets seriously
hurt or killed, ” Mr Felton said.
Ms Lynch said there are a number of road
easements in Nyora that were ridable but
have since been overgrown with blackber-
“That’s what we want to get done now, get
some of these old trails cleaned up. ”
For the meanwhile, the group is encourag-
ing drivers, and fellow horse riders, to show
respect for each other.
“ The group is here to make sure that horse
riders have somewhere safe and part of
that is making people aware that instead of
speeding past horses; slow down.
“We’re trying to get back to the horse riders
that if they can see someone’s mowed their
nature strip; don’t ride on it.
“The owner obviously takes pride in their
property and they don’t want horse drop-
pings or holes - when it gets wet, horses tend
to sink into the ground. ”
The group’s most desired improvement
is the extension of the Great Southern Rail
Trail from Leongatha to Nyora.
Ms Lynch said she has ridden along the
rail trail and enjoys how it has been opened
up to accommodate for push bikes, pedestri-
ans and horses.
The group has held discussions with coun-
cil around the possibility of extending the
“The information they gave me is that the
council, within the next two financial years,
will be seeking funding to extend the rail
“They’re keen to get behind it, ” she said.
Council confirmed they were investigating
the extension of the trail but haven’t applied
“The current Paths and Trails Strategy is
being reviewed next financial year. Horse
trails around Nyora will form part of this
review,” said Danielle Thompson, council’s
Communications and Engagement Officer.
Mr Felton said the group has also held
meetings with council and the Nyora Rec-
reational Reserve Committee around safety
“To date, we have had positive communica-
tion with both the council and reserve com-
mittee and continue to look for solutions
and alternative areas for unloading, riding,
and loading of horses within Nyora and sur-
