This is an old film shot, scanned, taken at the Echunga Three Day Event in the early 80s. No body protectors!! God I’m old!!!
I think this is Rodney Angel,but honestly, I’ve got no real idea.
This fantastic three day event in the Adelaide Hills used to be held on the police training/breeding property at Echunga outside Adelaide, until bean counters worked out that mounted police were a waste of time, and breeding and training the horses was a waste of money, and holding a major event that heaps of people actually paid to attend was financial suicide, and nobody cared and who would notice anyway … need I go on??
