So What is an Australian Draught Horse?




Do I need an Australian Draught horse to participate in Sydney and Southern Districts Branch? No, any horse is fine! Or join as a social member and enjoy the yarns......





September 2007 News


The club and social day was held on Sunday 26th August at Luddenham Showground, Campbell Street Luddenham with much success. Due to lockdown subsequent to Equine Influenza outbreaks, no horses were permitted however that did not stop some 26 people from coming along and sharing some stories, watching some old video footage, enjoying a good feed and enjoying the warm sunny day.

During the meeting the topic of website was raised. While a proper website is prepared, this temporary site will be maintained with important dates, results, internet links and classifieds.





 August 2007 News


Drizzle and cold weather was not enough to put a dampener on our first club get-together at the Luddenham Showground this year. Almost 30 people came on the day; existing members, new members and people interested in finding out about our club. We had some new members sign up to the Sydney and Southern Branch, enquiries about horse classification, and we sold a bit of ADHSBS merchandise too.

Six people brought their horses, which was a good effort. Amongst the horses we had a registered Australian Draught, a mare from Clydesdale Rescue, a Haflinger and a young Shire stallion. They were black, bay, chestnut and buckskin, short and tall, which goes to show you don’t have to have a certain type of horse to come along and have fun driving over bridges, around witches hats and around the log snig course.

Lunch was served under the shelter of a covered picnic area, appropriately decorated with old horse drawn winkers and harness, and old pieces of Australian memorabilia. Morning and afternoon tea were a treat to the tastebuds thanks to the many people who brought nibblies and biscuits, and who had been busy in their kitchens making a great selection of homemade slices and cakes.

Thankyou to everyone who helped organise the event and those who braved the drizzle to come along. Thanks also to Dianne who made and donated a selection of jams for the lucky door prize.
