We will be ploughing up memories of the past with QLD and Australian champions, singles and pairs horses. There will be stud and breed displays. A show talk with a national judge, so all those questions you have always wondered about may be answered on the day.

Be amazed and see how the heavy horse shoes are made and fitted with a blacksmith and farrier display.

Join in and have some fun and see how far you can throw the heavy horse shoe in the throwing competition to be held at lunch time. Champions receive a keepsake for their efforts.

A horse works will be grinding up corn and a working implements display is a must see for everyone to see how it was done in the good old days. A hay raking display will be done on the day.

Take a walk down memory lane and see horse drawn sulkies, drays, phaetons and more being used as if it was only yesterday they were the main means of transport. See how to harness a horse and find out how it all works.

Watch a log and slide course being completed with singles and pairs.
Listen to some yarns and bush poetry about the good old days.

Enjoy damper and billy tea cooked fresh on the camp fire in traditional camp ovens and billy's. Golden syrup dripping from your fingers as you enjoy the special treat. Relax and enjoy some country music the old style way.
