AN AMAZING family show featuring highly trained horses, dogs and cattle, all blended with bush humour and tricks, is running in conjunction with the Reining Australia National Futurity Show over three days at AELEC.
The show, The Rooftop Express, will be held tomorrow night and was the first of its kind in Australia, Reining Australia vice-president Errol Thomas said.
“It’s a new show which has only started this year,” Mr Thomas said.
The show features Dave Manchon, who used to ride in Outback Spectacular.
“He works with dogs for movies, and liberty horses (which are specifically taught to lie down and sit up),” Mr Thomas said.
“It’s got a lot of horse stunts, it’s got a lot of comedy.
“We’ve got a bucking horse. It’s a good, family fun show.”
Mr Thomas said they’d toured the event on the Queensland show circuit earlier this year and it proved very popular.
“It’s just grabbing people – it’s so different; no one’s ever seen anything like this,” he said.
“It’s not just a stunt show: it’s a really full comedy act.”
The show starts after the 5.30pm parade at AELEC.
You can buy tickets ($30 adults/$15 children) either online at www.visittamworth.com.au or at the door.
The $50,000 Reining Australia National Futurity Show started yesterday and continues today and tomorrow.
A total of 600 entries had been received and there were four divisions in the open class, Mr Thomas said.
“You’re going to see some awesome stuff. The harder the crowd goes, the harder we go,” he said.
