Lake County Show
Lake County A&P Association, 12 Jan 2019
Welcome to the 2019 Lake Hayes A & P Show.
Horses, dogs and fashion! What more could you want from an A&P Show.
This year our committee has pulled together a truly great show. Of course, we still have everyone’s favourites, great entertainment for the kids, an eclectic mix of trade stalls, pets, sheep and our wonderful grand parade.
We’ve introduced a pleasure riding section called Stock and Station which includes a new obstacle course. Fun for all, great to watch and opens up the show to a new group of riders. There’s also a Riding Horse and a Saddle Hunter Pony Section.
We are also having a Fashion in The Field Equine Edition so make sure to get those fancy hats out!
There’s something for everyone at the Lake Hayes Show, see you there 12 January 2019.
