Close to 200 horses were in Tatura recently for the biggest Arabian Championship in Victoria.
The 29th annual event at Tatura Park saw hundreds gather with many coming from interstate to catch a glimpse of the action.
‘‘It was very successful... the event brings a lot of money into the town from accommodation, feed stores, supermarkets and the caravan park,’’ event co-organiser Judy Meade said.
‘‘We had halter and saddle performance classes... with prizemoney, trophies and rugs up for grabs for supreme champions.’’
On Sunday, the Arabian Extravaganza was held at the complex, which is a similar event run by the Yarra Valley Arabian Club.
The Arabian Championship Victoria was the first horse show ever run at Tatura Park and Ms Meade said the organising committee was already excited for next year.
A ‘‘special event’’ is planned for next year, the 30th running of the show.
