Description

I have always been inspired by horses and while painting a work for the Gallipoli Art prize I listened to a book called "Bill the Bastard" about a famous Lighthorse who rescued 4 Tasmanians from a massacre by carrying away them all at once. His story inspired me to seek out the Walers and I found the Creswick Lighthorse troop.
“Continuing the ANZAC Tradition” The Creswick Light Horse Troop was formed in 1995 as a joint initiative of the Creswick Youth Alliance, the Creswick Police, and the Creswick RSL Sub-branch. Many of the group ride Walers, the original breed of horses of the Lighthorse brigades.
