2019 Laggan Pig Races

Laggan Hotel

Laggan Pig Races on Saturday 16th February will be an event not to be missed where trained athletic Piglets will negotiate a course at a crackling pace to be crowned the fastest snout in the trough!

The proceeds from the race day will go to Upper Lachlan Foundation to support local groups across the Upper Lachlan Shire.  Actor and author, William McInnes, Patron of ULF, will be present on the day, no doubt gathering gems for his next book.

ULF Board Member, Chris Croker and organiser of the event stated, “This will be a great fun day for all ages, bring a chair, get into the spirit with friends and enjoy!”

Barrels 4 Bianca
to 14 Jan.

Barrels 4 Bianca

Crookwell Showground
13-14 January

"Barrels 4 Bianca" is an annual event held in the memory of Bianca Picardi who was a talented sportswoman and a highly accomplished local horsewoman competing at the elite level.

Bianca died from suicide in 2015 and the "Bub for Life" Trust with Upper Lachlan Foundation was set up by her mother, Sue Kohleis, to honour her daughter and to support others suffering with depression.

Barrel racing is an exciting, full throttle event requiring the highest level of horsemanship to negotiate the course over a timed period.  The trust between horse and rider is as close as it gets and both require athlete fitness to participate.

This is an event recognised by Australian Barrel Horse Association and points earned from participation go toward the National Title and the opportunity to compete overseas.  Last year, it is held in Victoria and next year, Crookwell - Bianca's home - will be hosting.  Competitors travel from around the country to participate.
