Draught horses were vital to the development of agriculture and transport in South Australia from colonial time until well into the twentieth century when they were superseded by mechanisation. Barossa historian Don Ross first drove a draught horse as a boy and as a farmer continued using them for over 60 years. As a foundation member of the SA Working Draught Horse Association, he has also judged draught horses at country shows in South Australia. His presentation of over 100 images shows draught horses working in a wide variety of tasks both historically as well as in modern times. Bookings required by phone or email.
