28th of May to 30st of May 2015
Followed by Toomba Sale on the 31st of May 2015
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 2014 our event will have $50,000 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!
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW & NEED TO DO LEADING UP TO THE 2015 EVENT
Would everyone please check/update their bank details on Campdraft Central, if you have the incorrect or no details when we pay out the prize money you will NOT receive it. Your consideration in providing this update will assist the committee to make prompt and accurate payments of prize money.
So............... NO a/c details NO prize money!
We will also like to inform competitors that as at 20/05/2015, you will NOT be permitted to change horses (order of run or horse being ridden) or change the rider, unless there are extenuating circumstances (e.g. your horse is missing/escaped or your parents forgot to bring it)!!
