The 10th Light Horse Bunbury Troop also put on a riding and Tent Pegging display at the Dardanup Heavy Horse Show at Heritage Park. Although Tent Pegging originated as a Military maneuver in which cavalry soldiers would gallop through enemy camps, using their lances and swords to remove tent pegs to collapse tents and cause confusion in order to gain the upper hand in a surprise attack. Over time, tent pegging was used as a cavalry drill for weapons practice and as part of Military tournaments and competitions. The Australian State Mounted Police also used Tent Pegging for demonstrations of their riding skills, but it was not until 1964 that the first Australian civilian tent pegging team was formed. This equestrian sport was recognized Internationally in 1982, and International competitions are now conducted by the Federation Equestre International.
Wow what a long day! Even with back up batteries and 6 x 4GB cards I ran out of memory beofre the end of the day…and I don’t know about the competitors who finished afer 7pm, but I certainly was exhausted by the time I left (lets just blame the heat shall we:)
As well as photographs from the day, I am pleased to also provide a video of the Show Jumping phase of the One Day Event.

Each individual rider video is between 1 minute 30 seconds to 3 minutes long and are also available on DVD or web format. All videos are recorded at 1080p HD, however they are only sold at 720p resolution for quality playback on most modern standard DVD players.
The full length video and individual rider videos maintain the ambient sound that was at the event, but background music only can also be provided.
