The Working Horse And Tractor Rally is held each year at a venue close to Korrumburra on the South Gippsland Highway in Victoria.
It’s a place where city and country folk congregate to celebrate and learn about the workings of old machinery and see fine displays of Clydesdale, Percheron and other breeds of working horses in action.
These photographs were taken as part of a camera club outing and the day was very hot and dusty with strong lighting. Many of these pictures have been turned into creative art pieces due to the challenging conditions and others were filmed in ‘black and white’, but the results are quite fabulous.
The main picture below of two working horses with harness and bridles was awarded a prize of excellence for capturing the personality of animals – it does look as though these two horses are having a very interesting conversation.
