The word is spreading about this year’s Lower Lakes Stockmans Challenge and Bush Festival running over the 16th – 18th September in Strathalbyn, 55 kms SE of Adelaide. Chloe Pearce is working hard as Promotions Coordinator – keen for the event to reach iconic status for SA!
The Lower Lakes Stockman’s Challenge and Bush Festival is a 3 day event with local and interstate competitors showcasing their skills in:
- whip cracking
- bareback obstacles
- stock handling
- horse shoeing
- cross country events
The partnership between horse and rider, the trust and respect they have for each other, and the way they work together really showcases the Aussie ‘bush spirit’…something that SA is keen to preserve for all of us.
A keen visitor says:
“Cannot wait till September, have attended this event for the past 2 years and its getting bigger and better every year. So happy to see that it is going ahead after the loss of the President, he will be greatly missed but I am sure that the rest of team will rally and continue to educate and keep our Australian traditions and skills alive. It is amazing to watch the talent and skill of the competitors and their horses in action. Roll on September!” Therese L.
