Special congratulations must go to Louise Brown for her spectacular "Tully Tractor" in our fancy dress class. Louise & Tully got about in their tractor outfit in howling winds - Louise was still smiling and Tully didn't set a hairy hoof wrong! Louise even had a speaker on her shirt playing motor noises. Incredible dedication Louise - thank you!! ...

What a massive weekend!! Now that I’m home and have had a decent nights sleep, I’d like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making the 2019 National Shire & Southern Highlands Heavy Horse Show such a massive success.

To our exhibitors - thank you for coming along and supporting our newly expanded show. It was truly wonderful to see so many horses out in the rings competing! We had a lot of positive feedback and I’m so glad you all enjoyed it!

To our sponsors - thank you very much for making it possible for us to run such a successful show. We couldn’t do it without you.

To our judges, stewards and announcer - your hard work in keeping the show running smoothly is appreciated more than I can say.

To my committee and their family members - thank you for your tireless work in helping me take this show from concept to live event. It was better than I’d dared hope and I could not have done it without all of your help.

Finally, I’ll add I’m so glad you all braved the inclement weather. Fingers crossed Mother Nature is a bit kinder to us next year!

Kind regards,

Cai Thomas
President
