Heavy horses on show

GENTLE giants of the equine industry will again grace the showground paddocks as part of the Warwick Show Sunday program on March 25.

The presence of the heavy horses will evoke images of the old country before trucks and machinery roamed the farmyard.

Last year Warwick had the best heavy horse turnout at any agriculture show in Queensland, steward Clare Gorwyn said.

"This year I am hoping for about 30 horses but I could get more or less," Mrs Gorwyn said.

"We have a full program of events on the Sunday and will have two rings running the whole day.

"Some of Queensland's top show horses will be there, along with some of the most skilled horsemen.

"Up and coming junior handlers will also be on display.

"There will be both quality horses and skilled competitors - it will be a sight to see."

Competition will start at 8.30am with the led class, and the working and harness classes will take place in the afternoon.

All events will take place in Evans Paddock, at the Warwick Showgrounds.
