Over the past 12 years the Festival has grown to be one of the largest displays of heavy horses in Australia.
An extensive program provides opportunities of all age groups and skill levels to participate in a relaxed and cohesive environment.
Full commentary, demonstrations, trade and market stalls are a major part of the festival enabling the free flow of information between participants and the general public.
Our Festival is much more than just a ‘horse show’ enabling the general public to be entertained and interact with show ring activities, visit the displays in our trade village and be able to enjoy the show with full commentary, grassed ring side seating under shade and numerous foodies vans to enjoy a full day or weekend of watching the ring activities.
