EKKA (Royal Brisbane Show) 2011

Bushfire and Chief in the pairs class

Unfortunately due to injury of two of our troop horses, Emugully had only two horses competing against the Police Horses this year, representing the Lockyer Light Horse troop again in the Police/Troop Horse classes at the Royal Brisbane Show. The classes were judged differently this year, the Best Presented class was judged on how well the horse went as a potential troop/police horse in a hack style workout (somewhat challenging in full military kit hanging off the saddle was a gun, sword, water bottle, saddle wallet, feedbag, rolled up blanket, with the rider wearing a canvas shoulder bag and ammunition bandolier just to name some of the stuff) and none of the gear was inspected, unlike previous years where even the soles of rider's shoes were inspected, however we stillmanaged to get 3rd and 4th in a class of 10, as well as a 3rd in the pairs. Our horses and riders were commended for the high level of presentation and accuracy of their uniform and kit.
