The Lower Lakes Stockman's Challenge & Bush Festival
16th - 17th - 18th September 2016
Strathalbyn, South Australia
This event brings together the top national competitors in aussie bush heritage events and is a must see!
The Australian Bush Stockman would often be alone for weeks patrolling fence-lines, or droving with a handful of mates for hundreds of miles in almost uninhabited country. These were the bush pioneers whose proficiency was developed as a simple matter of survival in a harsh land; they gave us our heritage, they were Legends!
The Lower Lakes Stockman’s Challenge and Bush Festival is a 3 day event held in Strathalbyn, South Australia with local and interstate competitors showcasing their skills in whip cracking, bareback obstacles, stock handling, packhorse, horse shoeing and cross country events.
The partnership between horse and rider, the trust and respect they have for each other, and the way they work together showcases true aussie bush spirit.
