World class live show coming to the Burnett
THE Rooftop Express Show is a travelling Australiana comedy show that combines awe inspiring horsemanship with thrilling stunts.
They will be bringing their unique performance to the Mount Perry Show.
A show for the entire family or anyone who ever wanted to put on a cowboy hat, the show was originally the brainchild of David Manchon from Flex Horse Training.
The show demonstrates the way of the bush and helps to educate communities about the importance of primary production in Australia which Mount Perry knows well.
“When we bring a taste of the country back to the country we always make sure we have our best horses, our most impressive bullocks and out best dogs so that we can impress those who are already informed,” Mr Manchon said.
“Mount Perry produces some great horsemen and cattlemen so we feel that pressure.”
This will be the first time The Rooftop Express has visited Mount Perry.
“We enjoy being able to show people what is possible with horses and cattle but we package it in a comedy style with a strong message about production,” Mr Manchon said.
“I always say if you have a broken rib don’t come to the show though.”
Mr Manchon is widely recognised as one of the stars of the horse industry having been a lead performer at the Australian Outback Spectacular and as a presenter for Totally Wild.
Mr Manchon works with experienced riders Anthony Cootes and Troy Thomson to perform their show to top quality.
Mr Cootes has performed in numerous shows around Australia including residency at the Warner Village Theme Parks.
Mr Thomson is a former Junior World Champion bareback rider and has trained horses and livestock for Australian film and television for 10 years.
“I look forward to bringing this world-class production to the Mount Perry Show, my team brings a keen originality and a refined experience of performance only able to be conveyed to audiences through first hand experience,” Mr Manchon said.
The Rooftop Express live show will be performing at the Mount Perry Show at around 5pm, after the ring events have been completed.
LIVE PERFORMANCE: David Manchon has a close bond with his animals.
