This year’s Barmah Muster has been hailed the biggest yet.
Barmah Cattlemen’s Association president Brad Caldwell said it had been a ‘‘ripper weekend’’ with plenty of successful horse events.
‘‘It’s fantastic. Last year was the biggest and this year is even bigger. There’s thousands of people.’’
Saturday’s wood chopping competition proved a major drawcard, with world champion Laurence O’Toole beating Brayden Meyer.
The event took place at the Barmah Muster yards and featured junior whip cracking, horse novelty events, open barrel racing, yarn-spinning and a camp oven tea.
Danny Phegan and the Longreach Band entertained crowds on Saturday night.
The muster was originally a round-up of cattle from the Barmah Forest, but in recent years has become a three-day weekend set in and around the yards at the edge of the Barmah Forest.
