Horse Aust may return

THE Horse Australia committee will soon go into discussions to decide if the event should become a permanent three-yearly fixture on Rockhampton's calendar.

Horse Australia was staged for the first time last week, drawing healthy crowds and lots of positive feedback, said event manager Noel Landry.

Mr Landry said while competitors and trade fair exhibitors seemed keen to return, Horse Australia's fate now rested with its committee.

"We'll have a debrief with the Horse committee and look at the feedback forms that were handed around,'' Mr Landry said.

"It also depends on the competition event coordinators and whether we can get the competitions back to CQ for the next time.

"We had good crowds and all the hotels were full .?.?. that's all the things we wanted.''

And as for the possibility of adding a third event to the triennial Beef and Horse Australia expos, Mr Landry said all the team wanted now was a break before Beef 2006 preparations.
