Rooftop Express

The Rooftop Express 

The Rooftop Express is a first class arena spectacular show that features world first stunts, true blue Australian comedy and awe-inspiring horsemanship.

Its loveable bush characters and amusing storyline encourages crowd participation and family fun.

For anyone who has ever wanted to put on a cowboy hat and ride off into the sunset, The Rooftop Express is a must-see.

The Rooftop Express pays homage to Australia’s primary industries and shows how the bush will continue to prosper in today’s modern Australia.

You’ll be amazed as highly trained horses and farm animals perform amazing stunts and tricks both on the ground and on the roof of the Rooftop Express truck.

The talented cast of performers – both human and animal – bring this original show to life with incredible outback tricks, thrills and spills with family bush humour, antics and energy.

Horses in Action at the Royal Melbourne Show

There's nothing like the Royal Melbourne Show Horses in Action Program

The Horses in Action program is one of the highlights of the Royal Melbourne Show.

Australia’s finest horses and riders (some as young as 4 years old) compete in a spectacular range of blue ribbon events across the 12 days of the Show, thrilling audiences as they vie for a coveted Royal Melbourne Show victory.

2014 marked the 100 year anniversary of the first Clydesdale Champion awarded at the Royal Melbourne Show. To celebrate the milestone, the led Clydesdale judging took place indoors in The Weekly Times Livestock Pavilion.

The Royal Melbourne Show's prestigious Garryowen Equestrienne Turnout is one of the most anticipated events on the nation’s equestrian calendar. In 2014 the Garryowen’s 80th anniversary was celebrated in true style.

Congratulations to all 2014 Horses in Action competitors!

The RASV would like to congratulate and thank all competitors, volunteers and committee members for making the 2014 Royal Melbourne Show Horses in Action program such a brilliant event.
