There is a lovely selection of Irish horses coming forward The stud will also be holding a small open day for the public to come in and view the horses that are currently out and about competing in QLD and NSW (Yes Bruce Almighty will be available for pats!)

The Werribee Park National Equestrian Centre is seeking Expressions of Interest for the Summer Horse Show: Breed Showcase and Extravaganza 2017.
The discontinuation of the Summer Royal Horse Show has saddened the Show Horse community, to lose such a prestigious event. The Equestrian Centre are looking at resurrecting this show in the first week of January, to return it to the success it once was. A Breed Showcase Extravaganza!
To facilitate such an event they need our support.
IDSHS(Aust) Inc. are seeking expressions of interest from our members who would be interested in attending this event. In conjunction we will be running a trade stand to promote the breed.
We would be operating our own rings i.e.: Judges, ribbons and stewards. WPNEC will provide tents, arena set up and Judge/Steward catering. This would be a great opportunity for the Society to hold an Irish Draught and Sport Horse Breed Display day and for members to meet and talk about and show off our horses to the public.
If you are interested in attending this event or helping out with the running of the day, please contact the secretary as soon as possible so we can reply to the centre with our interest.
