Exciting news, overall nominations are up by 675 entries, which is a 25% increase from the 2016 event and certainly an increase on previous years with 420 riders and 782 horses entered for the Australian Stock Horse Society’s National Show in March 2017. The National Show Committee and Staff are pleased with the high calibre of competitors and horses once again returning to this annual event. It was hotly debated whether to move the event from May to a March timeline, however following a 2015 post event members survey, feedback was in support of moving to a warmer month so the Directors and Committee therefore went ahead and moved the event dates.
David Gatwood, General Manager for the Australian Stock Horse Society is thrilled with the support received.
“This is a fabulous result! Given the move to March & nominations competing with the Canberra & Sydney Royals”
The event, presented by the Board of Directors & the National Show Committee will promote the versatility and superior performance of the Australian Stock Horse breed through a variety of equine disciplines such as Campdrafting, Dressage, Ridden Classes, Led and traditional ASH classes such as Working Utility.
With a prize pool of over $140,000 consisting of cash, trophy saddles and products, the National Show feature events include but are not limited to; the National Futurity, Rosebrook ASH Stud National Maturity, RM Williams Abbey Open Challenge, Prydes EasiFeed Maiden Series Campdraft & Affinity Tambeau Snaffle Bit Futurity.
The Fountain of Youth Sale will once again keenly offer sought after young Australian Stock Horses including large vendor & purchaser incentives. Over 60 yearlings & two year olds with quality performance bloodlines will go under the hammer. The Society is excited to again partner with our approved selling agents, Landmark Equine, in continuing to build this prestigious young horse sale and offer exclusive competitions and incentives for horses purchased at this sale.
Spectators and visitors are most welcome to attend this major event to witness the high level of competition, feature entertainment of the Stock Horse Gala Night (Sat 4th March) and various educational workshops.
