YANGAN'S popular Heavy Horse Day was cancelled yesterday, with heavy rain at the weekend creating safety concerns.

The event draws huge crowds each year with stunning heavy horses showing off their skills to admiring spectators.

A spokeswoman for organiser Mick Bradford said this was the first time in 12 years the event had not gone ahead.

"Unfortunately we have had to postpone it because, due to the weather, it is just not safe," she said.

"It is very disappointing for Mick because he has put a lot of hard work into it."

The spokeswoman said Mr Bradford is hopeful the event can be re-scheduled in the near future but no date had been set as yet.

The Heavy Horse Day has raised more than $100,000 for RACQ CareFlight in the past decade.
