Coffs Harbour 

100th Annual Show


This year marked the 100th anniversary of the Coffs Harbour Show and Guy Fawkes Heritage Horses were honored to be invited to be the feature breed!!!! The classes were among the largest in both the led and ridden rings and the show announcer did such a wonderful job of promoting our horses- not that they needed the help! Again we complemented by fellow competitors, judges and spectators on the presentation and behavior of our horses- It still amazes us that people are suprised at how naturally quiet are horses are! Congratulations to Guy Fawkes Carmella who took out the championship and Guy Fawkes Danny who was sashed Reserve. The same two horses went on to take out the same two positions in the Australian Brumby classes. Congratulations also to Guy Fawkes Legacy and Guy Fawkes Carmella who placed 2nd and 3rd in the Open Hunter in Hand class against a great line up of bred horses! Fantastic to see our horses competing and placing in the Open ring!!!!

Grafton Show 2014


Another well attended show for the GFHHA classes at Grafton this year! The comments from spectators, other competitors and judges were all so positive and the naturally calm temperament of our horses shone through yet again, especially considering several of the horses shown were at their very first outing and a couple had only been removed from the park 2 months ago. Congratulations to Micheal Bowhay's colt Karala Midnight Express who was sashed Champion and to Kate Young's black Gelding Guy Fawkes Legacy who won Reserve Champion!

Dorrigo Show 2013



Congratulations to everyone who attended the home town show of the Guy Fawkes Heritage Horse! Dorrigo and Guy Fawkes Annual Agricultural Show was held 23rd-24th November 2013 and it was lovely to see GFHHA registered horses competing not only in the led GFHHA classes but also in ABHR classes and the harness section. Christine O'Rourke and her palomino gelding 'Northern Rivers Billy Tea '  did very well in the led classes placing 2nd in the Under 3yrs GF Horse, 2nd in the gelding class and also received Reserve Champion Led GFHHA. 'Billy Tea' and Christine also went on to win every harness event they entered!!! Huge congrats on a massive effort Christine!   Of course 'Guy Fawkes Carmella' was there with her owner Erica Jessup- together they won the led GFHHA registered mare class and placed second on the led Colorama class. The winner of  the Champion GFHHA sash was 'Guy Fawkes Yuundu' (AKA 'Horse') owned my Jamie and Kate Young. 'Horse' also won the Led GFHHA Under 3yrs class, the Led GFHHA Gelding class and placed 2nd in the Led Saddle Pony Gelding class receiving some lovely comments from the judge and an indication that he should continue to get better and better with maturity. 


 Check out our new video! Recently,  Daily Examiner journalist Debrah Novak visited our horses at the holding block in Ebor. Debrah has complied this short video, interviewing GFHHA President and horseman Digby Foster and captured some footage of our wonderful horses- Thanks Debrah!
