The Night of the Horse

Next date: Saturday, 27 February 2021 | 07:00 PM to 10:00 PM


Calling all horse lovers .... The Night of the Horse is set to be Australia's biggest night of equine entertainment, education and excellence.

With a list of world first stunts in his holster, show director Dave Manchon is excited to bring an all-star line-up of horses to the QSEC Main Arena with a never-before-seen production in QLD that is sure to get hearts racing, hooves galloping and whips cracking.

Dave Manchon’s exciting style of Equine Arena Shows are recognised as providing some of the most exciting and talked about moments seen in the entertainment industry today. With its own impressive record of popular performances the Rooftop Express Show is widely recognised now as the “event highlight” wherever it goes.

The Night of the Horse will enable the audience to experience the variety and adrenaline of a fast-paced Wild West Show. The show will broadcast an interactive and inspiring message about horsemanship, education and teachings of self belief as spoken about by the night’s blue ribbon special guest trainers.

There will be something for everyone throughout the night with bulls, brahmans, wagon wheels and family fun high on the entertainment agenda. Watch out for lucky door prizes, merchandise giveaways and the t-shirt gun promo shooter! Keep an eye out for the Cowboy Dance Cam and Kiss Cam as it scans the crowd to ensure the evening is filled with belly laughs and ‘tell your friends’ moments.

The night will feature Equine Super Trainers:

  • Warren Backhouse (Australia’s highest money earning Reining Trainer, WEG rider and multiple Futurity, Derby and Open Champion)
  • Mark Buttsworth
  • Rob Leach (American Cow Horse Futurity Champion, Warwick Stallion Draft Winner, Equitana Cow Horse Champion)
  • Merrick Ubank
  • Scotty Finlayson
  • David Manchon

These trainers will be riding some of Australia’s highest money earning performance horses in the country and will ensure the Night of the Horse is a must-see event.
