Lee Kernaghan is undoubtedly Australia's number one country music artist. Since bursting on to the scene in 1992 Lee has created benchmarks that have been rivalled by no other country artist.

It is his undeniable connection to the Australian culture that has seen Lee win an incredible swag of 16 Golden Guitars, named Entertainer of the Year in 1996 and 1999 and also receive the title of Hitmaker of the Decade in 1999.

Lee's explosive show is recognised as the very best in Australian Country Mu sic and we are delighted to be able to present him in this year's Mane Event. You will see Lee perform some of his most popular songs amidst the sliding and spinning Reining horses - A true entertainment spectacular!

4. NAVATOE AMBER JOE - A True Champion!

You may have noticed that throughout our many EQUITANA promotions, we have frequently featured a photo of the beautiful reining horse, Navatoe Amber Joe, with his rider Martin Larcombe (competing at EQUITANA 1999).

Martin Larcombe is Navatoe Amber Joe's original trainer. He won the Australian Futurity on Joe in 1994 and then the following year he won the Classic on Joe and the Futurity again on Olena's Little Spin. In October 1998, Martin represented Australia in the reining demonstration at the World Equestrian Games in Rome.

For the past three years Martin & Samantha Larcombe have been working in Italy training reining horses for Cisal Quarter Horses, located about 70 km North West of Milan. They report that the Reining industry is strong in Europe, with Italy, in particular, probably 2nd to the U.S.A. in terms of participation and prize money.

Come to the Melbourne Exhibition Centre in November for the chance to see Martin and Navatoe Amber Joe compete in the EQUITANA Reining Masters. You will be amazed by all Reining combinations, as they perform incredible spins, sliding stops and roll backs at incredible speeds.
