Horses come out to play at Masters

SPECTATORS can get up close and personal with some exquisite light and heavy horses at the Maryborough Harness and Saddle Pleasure Club two-day Masters Games event from Saturday, October 9.

The event will start at 8am on both days at Maryborough Park. Two rings will be operating, one for light horses and one for heavy horses, and organisers have mapped out a space in the centre for public seating.

The special 20th anniversary event will include classes of show driving, turnouts, sporting events and heavy horses in action.

There will be popular ploughing demonstrations on Sunday.

A canteen will operate both days and the club is hosting a barbecue on Saturday night that will feature the annual horse shoe throwing competition.

Entry is free.
