Horse­man com­ing to Bush Spirit Fes­ti­val

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE Bush Spirit Fes­ti­val will host iconic horse­man Guy McLean.

Mr McLean is a per­fect fit for Eidsvold’s RM Wil­liams Learn­ing Cen­tre fes­ti­val on June 1, with its theme Horse and Her­itage.

The Aus­tralian horse­man, en­ter­tainer and bush poet now lives in­Texas, USA, but orig­i­nally hails from the Wide Bay’s Su­san River Home­stead.

He will be bring­ing his Find­ing a Bet­ter Way demon­stra­tion back to Aus­tralia, for what is sure to be a high­light of the Bush Spirit Fes­ti­val.

John Day, cen­tre man­ager of the RM Wil­liams Aus­tralian Bush Learn­ing Cen­tre, said the fes­ti­val’s en­ter­tain­ment was wo­ven around a blend of horse spe­cial­ists like Mr McLean.

“He typ­i­fies the true spirit of this year’s fes- tival theme, Horse and Her­itage,” Mr Day said.

“Guy McLean is such an in­spir­ing and tal­ented horse­man who pro­vides dy­namic, in­for­ma­tive, ed­u­ca­tional and ex­cit­ing per­for­mances.

“Hav­ing him be a part of our fes­ti­val is such a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for the North Bur­nett com­mu­nity.

“We are re­ally look­ing for­ward to see­ing him per­form.”

Vis­i­tors to the fes­ti­val will see heavy horses atwork, black­smithing, wood­work­ing, horse shoe­ing, chain­saw­ing demon­stra­tions and a va­ri­ety of horse sports.

Bush po­ets will pro­vide a light-hearted at­mos­phere, and bush crafts will be avail­able from stall hold­ers.
