Horses team up for Pro-Ag
REBECCA and Garry Rollans will give their new carriage driving team its first public outing at Pro-Ag in Macksville today and tomorrow.
The couple have been invited to take their new Orara Valley Spring Water fourhorse team to Macksville to perform at the Pro-Ag field days.
Garry Rollans will give demonstrations of his and his team's ability to negotiate a series of obstacles every two hours today and tomorrow in the main arena at Macksville Showground.
The Rollans' team of four black and dark brown horses is a relatively young outfit, with the youngest team member just four-years-old and the oldest horse an experienced 12-year-old. The team includes the Rollans' home-bred stallion Renoir, who pulls with team mates Scotch, Casey and Whisky.
Mrs Rollans said the carriage in use at Pro-Ag would be a competition carriage with disc brakes used in harness driving events and not the promotional vehicle they will eventually be using.
The couple will also have a trade stand at Pro-Ag, as they are launching Orara Valley Spring Water into the Nambucca Valley.
Pro-Ag includes exhibits and displays, cattle parades, food and entertainment and will be held at Macksville Showground from 9am to 5pm today and 9am to 4pm tomor- row.
