2018 AHAA State Show

Friesian and Friesian Partbred classes

Members report by Allison Tomlinson, 11 March 2018

The Andalusian Horse Association of Australasia held their annual state show at the Tatura Equestrian Centre on March 3 & 4th of 2018. It’s a well organised show with amazing facilities – including state of the art indoor with plenty of seating in the grandstand, covered outdoor to warm up in, large grass areas and immaculate stables. There are also onsite caravans to hire, large amenity block (including showers), powered or non powered camp sites and plenty of wash bays for your horses.

Along side the pure and part bred Andalusians, the show committee always ensure to support Friesians and Friesian Warmbloods by holding an array of classes, both led and ridden. There is also exhibition classes and the Australian Challenge is ran on the Saturday night which is a fun class to participate in and a good chance to let your horse unwind.

This year our numbers were almost bigger then the Andalusian side, with nearly more Friesian and Friesian Warmbloods entered and competing. I hope that even more people will make the journey up to support the AHAA State show next year as the AHAA has kindly support the AFWHS HOTY 2018 Gala. Baroque Horses need to stick together to make sure there are shows of this quality to attend each year. Results are as follows for the partbred classes:
