Farriers & Blacksmiths

The ancient art of blacksmithing and farriery is an essential part of the horse world. Watch as the professionals battle it out and show off their skills in this interesting competition! Prepare to be mesmerised as they design and shape metal into shoes over hot flames. Everything from novice and open blacksmithing, to forging and shoeing for horses.


With entries for the Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) Horse Competition opening in late March, please be aware you MUST have a Hendra vaccination microchip number in order to complete your entry.

This means the second dose of the vaccine Equivac HeV must be done BEFORE you can submit your entry form.

The online entry system will ONLY accept current microchip numbers that have been recorded on the Zoetis Vaccination Registry.

The vaccination doses are outlined below:

  • First dose
  • Second dose – within three weeks of first dose

Following the first and second dose, please follow up with your vet to make sure they’ve recorded your horse/s on the Zoetis Vaccination Registry.

We look forward to receiving your entry and please don’t hesitate to contact the Competition and Events Coordinator on 07 3253 3920 if you have any questions.
