Clydesdales & Heavy Horses

The Clydesdale breed of horse has a long history in the Scenic Rim dating back to the 1800’s when Mr Arnold Wienholt had the Wienholt Clydesdale Stud in Maryvale, a stud of some 400 horses. The Clydesdale breed in Queensland and in the Scenic Rim has been kept alive by the Ehrich Families and their enormous history and passion for the breed. The Scenic Rim Clydesdale Spectacular showcases the best of the breed and attracts breeders from Queensland and interstate. The Clydesdale Spectacular boasts the largest prize purse in the Southern Hemisphere with the Supreme Champion Clydesdale Exhibit taking home $5,000 in cash.

Scottish Pipe & Drum Bands

Scottish Pipes and Drums Bands who play throughout both days lend a colourful atmosphere to this fabulous event, with every performance proclaiming the Scottish ancestry of the Scenic Rim.  The Amberley Pipes & Drums, and the Warwick Thistle Pipe Bands are faithful regulars, with other guest Bands appearing.   If there’s a drop of Scottish blood coursing through your veins, or if you’re simply drawn to the drone of the pipes and drums, their music alone makes the SRC Spectacular worthwhile attending!!  You’ll be treated to the continuous air of many a lively Scottish Highland reel (dance) or the hauntingly beautiful lament of the pipes, with the exciting thump or slow and deliberate march of the drums.

The proud Clan colours and the swing of the pleated tartan kilts are a visual feast to behold. The Piperswear full Scottish Highland dress in proud display of its symbolism.  From the meticulously draped and fixed Pipers Plaid, the Feather Bonnet, the horse hair sporran, the dirks, the jewels and the buckles, it is truly a display of spectacular Gaelic tradition.
