Saddle up for Allora's brand new muster this Saturday

SADDLE up your horses, grab your riding gear and go for a ride.

David Taylor is organising the inaugural Allora Country Music Stampede and Horse Trail Riding Muster, to be held at the Allora Showground, this Saturday.

Not only will the muster be the first in Allora; it will be the first in Queensland.

Mr Taylor said he was looking forward to the event.

"It will be good," he said.

"It's one of the greatest and most exciting weekends.

"I've been to plenty elsewhere but this is the first one I've organised.

"I'm excited to have my own."

The day begins with a 20km horse ride starting at the Allora Showground, and going around the back of Hendon before returning to the showground in time for the afternoon entertainment.

Mr Taylor said there would be plenty of entertainment and something for everyone.

"If we get enough support on Saturday, we'd love to have two or more per year down the track," he said.

Anyone interested in the trail ride needs to sign in by 7.30am for an 8am start with a cost of $30 for the ride.

Gates for the entertainment open at 2pm for a 3pm start with entry costing $20 for adults, $15 for pensioners and $10 for children.
