They’ll be performing hits like Forever Begins Tonight, Here’s To You & I, Wrapped Up Good and Kick It Up, all sung with their stunning harmonies and backed by their incredible band.

    “We’re so excited to head off around Australia to play the ‘Like We Used To’ tour together!” Mollie said. “It will be a high energy show packed with all of the favourites. It has been a while since we hit the road and can’t wait to see you all soon!”

    Dressage Protocol Days

    Dressage Protocol Days

    Dressage Protocol Days are a great opportunity for riders to learn how to improve the riding of a dressage test in a more relaxed environment, by giving them 'on the spot' access to the dressage judge. Unlike a riding clinic, these protocol days focus on 'how' the test is ridden, rather than whether a rider can walk, trot or canter.

    Each rider rides a test, then has the opportunity to talk with the judge who will give feedback on how to improve the riding of the test or individual movements - all with the view to gaining more marks.

    It's also a great opportunity to learn about the language used by a dressage judge and gain insight into what they are looking for without the added pressure of competition. It is not essentially different from a rider discussing the test with the judge after a competition except that there is an opportunity to repeat movements.

National Rugby Championship: Will McDonnell enjoys maiden flight with NSW Country Eagles

Author: Kate

Saturday’s National Rugby Championship clash at Scully Park capped off what has been a breakout season for Narrabri’s Will McDonnell.

The former Blue Boars junior was at the start of the season just hoping to cement a first grade spot with Sydney University after being hampered by injury last season.

He well and truly surpassed that, the 22-year-old’s list of achievements over the season including playing for the Waratahs on their tour of Japan, being named the Rookie of the Year for the Shute Shield competition and Sydney Uni’s Rookie of the Year, and earning a call-up to the NSW Country Eagles squad.

Farm family shows the Royals how the drought has hurt I Gallery

Author: Kate

It’s not every day a Duke and a Duchess walk through the front gate on the property Mountain View Farm at Wongarbon near Dubbo – nor eight police with sniffer dogs, scores of press members and a retinue of VIPs and officials.

But that’s what happened yesterday when the Woodley family hosted Prince Harry and his new wife, US-raised Meghan Markle as the Royals took time out from their Dubbo visit to learn how hard the drought has been.

Laura Woodley, 23, even had time for a personal chat with Meghan, explaining what she does and how she is proud to be the fifth generation of Woodleys on the farm, a White Suffolk sheep stud.
