Our 2016 Festival

Australia Day Weekend – 23rd to 25th January 2016
Overall our Festival was a huge success considering the cancellation of the Summer Horse Show which our show was to be a feature event to draw the crowd- we decided to still run our festival and we believe this has been our best festival yet.
We were lucky to strike such great weather over the weekend which really brought out the crowd to enjoy the beautiful horses on show, to browse through the trade village and be able to sit and watch ring side.  Commentary was fast and furious with 3 rings in use.
Our international judge Mr Ronald Brewster (Scotland) had a busy weekend judging led Clydesdales, led Shires, Tradesman & Delivery Turnout (pairs & teams), also joined Mr Colin Brown to judge the ridden heavy horse and the Delivery horse & Delivery show horse classes.
Mr Glen Pate (Vic) judged the Tradesman & Delivery Turnout (single horse) then joined Mr Ronald Brewster to judge the pairs and teams.
Mr Colin Brown (NSW) judged the other listed heavy breeds of led Gypsy Cob, Friesian, Highland Pony, Fjord, part bred heavy horses and also judged the saddle classes.
Mr Joe Lawrence (Vic) had a great time judging the obstacle course in the Working Draft ring which was very popular with the general public.
The Saturday night the committee of the NCHHF put on a dinner for the exhibitors and also included our Auction which much needed funds support the running of the Festival.
Our festival represented a variety of heavy draft pony/horse breeds in Australia and displays an array of disciplines from your led breed stud stock, traditional working draft horses, tradesman and delivery trade harness, driven delivery horse classes and ridden heavy horses.
Our 2016 Festival included additional classes of driven horses as well as ridden heavy horses with an Australian first –  … the Australian Long Reining Championships which was very entertaining with an unique obstacle course set which was a challenge for all competitors.
