Heavy Horse Day clops into shape

AFTER 12 months his eight Clydesdale horses still marched in form to a perfect beat ready to be on show this weekend.

Mick Bradford is excited about the 10th Yangan Heavy Horse Day event and said everything was starting to shape up as he made preparations at his property yesterday.

“I had eight horses working together and they didn’t put a foot wrong after 12 months,” Mr Bradford said.

The eager horseman said he has had plenty of calls in regards to the event and has Clydesdale fans coming from as far north as Miriam Vale right down to Bega in New South Wales.

Mr Bradford hopes to have at least 2000 people at his property on Sunday similar to the turn out from last year.

“It’s a must...you’ve got to come it’s one of the best days in Australia they reckon,” Mr Bradford said.

The main attraction at the event is the four horse works from the 18th century, and according to Mr Bradford it’s the only one known to still be working in Australia.

The event is in aid of RACQ CareFlight and he hopes to raise $80,000 for the great cause. There will be camp oven stew and damper with a licensed bar available.
