ACHYG couldn't have asked for a more glorious day to have our Cutting Horse & Snafflebit Show at Lockyer Farms Arena. The arena surface was outstanding, the cattle were exceptional and everyone had a great day, in a fun friendly atmosphere. We saw new competitors come and join in the fun, some who have never experienced an event like this before, we think it is safe to say that they are Hooked. ACHYG would sincerely like to thank Andrew Lever of Lockyer Farms for all his dedication to make this show happen, Andrew worked tirelessly and nothing was to much trouble. Also thank you to Andrew's wife Paula Lever for her patience with us and Andrew while he was running around like a machine. ACHYG would like to thank all our competitors for their support on the day, we got a full day off cutting in and managed to beat the rain. We hope everyone who travelled to our event got home safely. For anyone wanting to hire Andrew's Arena & work their horses, Andrew has onsite cattle hire at all times. Contact Andrew on 0408069993.
