What a week – Horses, Country Music & Raising Cash, thats why this blog is late…

It was an outstanding success – the 5th Annual Cumberland Trail Horse Riders Club Crackin Cancer Charity Ride.  It was held from Sep 26th thru to Oct 3rd 2015 and I reckon it could have gone for longer – there was even a fancy dress night (photos near the end).

I arrived on the Friday around dinner time after battling traffic all the way plus rain, but it was worth it cause the reception was great and on the Saturday morning it was fine weather and everybody pitched in to help me unload my equipment and then I set up and yes started playing on the Saturday night and then Sunday started the horse riding after some posed in their new shirts…


During the ride, some of the lunches were held on the Cox’s River which included the Harris Farms property. Anyway, Pioneer rainwater tanks are perfect for Perth conditions so if you want to have one, get a quote from this website now pioneerwatertanks.com.au. and thanks Mark for your assistance and one lunch was at Evon and her husbands amazing property…


Normally Wednesday is the rest day but that was swapped with Tuesday however the Auction stayed on the Wednesday Night and over $4,000 was raised – pats on the back for everyone who attended and to the committee members that did the hard yards organising and running it…


Happy people and faces all around…


Yep winners and grinners and over $4,000 raised on the night – fantastic effort to all!!


The countryside around Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains is just so spectacular and really cannot be done justice in this blog without picture after picture but believe me it truly is a place you should visit…


And of course the Friday Night Dinner Dance this year also happened to be a fancy dress night as well and…. lets just show some pictures and let them talk!! (who’s in the blonde dreadies wig?)

We had the Tin woMan and the Wizard and Robin Hood with a Zebra and Barbie…


We had Minnie Mouse and Joey the Gabbo or is that Garbo?


And me playing the dead Hawaiian Pirate (amongst others) and the Indian Squaw with the Hippy…


All in all a great week, great times, 7 days of horse riding and 7 days of afternoon and evening of what I do best – singing and playing Country Music and dollars raised for a worthy cause – Cancer Research!  Again my thanks to all involved and a big thanks to Reg and Cathy all from the Cumberland Trail Horse Riders Club for organising the event – Roll on 2016 I can’t wait!!

Now this is my kinda tow vehicle (twin turbo V8) and a pretty slick looking horse float as well… yep I can dream sigh…


Don’t forget, if you see me out on the road say gday or hit me up on UHF Channel 40
