August 18th, 2014 | Busby Marou will be headlining the music program at Unbridled 2014!!

Busby Marou

Holy smokes, Batman, this is the big one! We have been bursting to tell you all about this for a while, and the time has finally arrived — Unbridled HQ is seriously stoked to announce that BUSBY MAROU will be headlining the 2014 music program!!

Busby Marou are one of the most charming, energetic and hard working live bands our country has to offer. They sell out shows everywhere from Surry Hills to Birdsville and have an incredibly loyal and diverse following. They spent May and June this year touring Australia and New Zealand as the main support for James Blunt, and have just released their second album “Farewell Fitzroy”, which debuted at #5 on the National ARIA charts. These guys just keep getting bigger and better!

The boys are going to be bringing the party, and we want you to be there to join in! Tickets are on sale now at TryBooking and you can read more about Busby Marou on our Performers page!

July 28th, 2014 | First Aid for Horses Presentation at Unbridled 2014

Dr Natasha Hovanessian

We would like to introduce you to Dr Natasha Hovanessian, BVSc., MS., from Canberra Equine Hospital! Natasha is a passionate and articulate Large Animal Veterinarian who will be presenting at Unbridled 2014! We’re pretty (read: extremely) impressed by Natasha, and are seriously pleased to be able to help her share her knowledge at the festival.

Natasha will share vital information on First Aid for Horses, including how to perform a physical examination, bandaging your horse safely, and how to administer medications. This is a presentation not to be missed by current (and future) horse owners!

Find out more about Natasha on our Performers page!

July 13th, 2014 | Miniature Horses

Mounted Archery

Miniature Horses

These gorgeous mini creatures usually stand no higher than 86-97 centimetres! Can you believe it!! That is the size of a large hound, surly not a horse. Imagine how tiny a Miniature foal is… Eek!

The Miniature Horses’ popularity is rapidly growing in Australia and around the world. We are thrilled to announce The Independent Miniature Horse Registry will be bringing Unbridled 2014 more squeals & cute joy than we think we can handle! They will demonstrate the versatility and athleticism of the Miniature Horse in the Main Arena and be displaying the Miniature Horse in the Breed Pavilion. The display will be accompanied by commentary from Wayne Hipsley (USA).

Find out more about Miniature Horses on our Performers page!
