Horse masters ride into town

THE Horseman from Snowy River is in town and horse enthusiasts can learn the tricks of the trade next Thursday.

The Horseman from Snowy River manager Michael Harrison said international horse master Rene Gasser would host the classes.

He said regardless of skill level, everyone would gain something from attending.

“The beauty of the class is it caters to all levels from really basic to advanced stuff,” he said.

“The class will teach people how to lunge a horse and get it to trot or canter, to skills including laying the horse down and working the horse at liberty.

“It's all to do with body language and voice commands.”

The class on Thursday, July 22, has already had a great response but tickets are still available.

“People don't need their own horse, they can just come in,” Mr Harrison said.

Bundaberg residents are also encouraged to view the show between this Friday, July 16 and Sunday, July 25.

“If you are very horse orientated you will enjoy and appreciate the show,” Mr Harrison said.

“We have even got a horse that can capriole, where they jump up in the air and kick up the back legs as well.

“It's a fantastic show with lots of comedy.”

To purchase tickets for the master class or the show telephone 1300 365 700 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              1300 365 700      end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

People can also telephone Ticketmaster on 136 100.
