Horse Experience Show – straight from the Royal Easter Show – and much more
One of the favourite attractions at this year’s Sydney’s Royal Easter Show was the Snowy Mountain Station and Horse Experience Show. Some of the talents behind those shows came to the 2017 St Ives Show on Saturday
Whip Maker extraordinaire, Glen Denholm, opened the show on the main stage at 2pm.
Besides the Horse Experience, the beautiful bush parklands and historic pavilions of St Ives Showground had displays and attractions as diverse as the Annual Sunday Horse Show with its hundreds of competitors, Remy’s Music Machine to keep adults and kids bopping along, clever kelpies herding sheep and fireworks at 7.30pm on Saturday evening.
There were plenty of food and beverage stalls – and markets as well – making it a great day out for the whole family.
