Horse of the North was brought about by a group of local Charters Towers families who have a passion to bring an event to fruition that is for everyone! It has been our goal since inception to build an event that celebrates successes, but also encourages the beginnings - after all, we all have to start somewhere!
We rolled up our sleeves in 2007 and started the event with $250, being $50 startup capital from each family and thus our journey began! In 2013 our event will boast over $80,000 in cash and prizes and is now one of the most coveted Stockman's Challenge events to win on the Performance Horse Calendar. We hope you enjoy our event as much as we enjoy putting it on for you!
An exciting new initiative at HOTN 2013 is our Shoeing Championship. There are two divisions catering for everyone - Pro & Non-Pro. Some fantastic prizes and a pool of cash are up for grabs! For the full program please head to our Forms page and download!
For those competitors that are apprehensive about competing we will be holding a Mentoring morning on Wedensday 29th May. Our professional riders have generously agreed to assist those of you that would like to take up the opportunity and receive some pointers. Its a chance to overcome some nerves, meet fellow competitors and get some valuable advice from seasoned competitors. If you are wanting to be involved please email Bron on email@example.com
We know those of you that camp between Gold City & HOTN will be looking forward to a morning away from the grounds. We thought what better way to spend some quality time together than a girly morning at Sisbella Hair & Beauty!
