The Voice of the Show – Carol Heuchan
Carol Heuchan is a lady of many hats. She has been a professional horsewoman for most of her life, training riders and show horses and competing successfully in thirty-four Royal Easter Shows. She is also a highly qualified National Judge and has judged internationally.
In 2003, her first book was published and led her to the world of Bush Poetry which she took by storm, amassing a swag of awards. Twice Australian Champion and nine times Laureate award winner, five books and five CD’s (all award winning), she is also the winner of the richest prize in poetry history – a thirty-four thousand dollar tractor!
Carol has been on the winning team in the World Poetry Debate and has been part of numerous Australia-wide radio programs and featured in the ABC television series “Bush Slam”, shown many times on national prime time television.
She has just completed her ninth International performance tour of the U.S. and has another awaiting confirmation.
Carol also has numerous bookings for some of the biggest events in the Southern Hemisphere for 2017.
Needless to say, Carol Heuchan is in great demand as an entertainer, compere, writer, guest speaker, judge of horses and poetry, and horse events commentator (anything to get out of housework, she says!)
You may have heard her voice at the Royal Easter Show where she was the very popular Main Arena Commentator for six years. Carol has had a long association with Agricultural Shows – even serving on the committee of this very Show in the past. Combining this connection and passion with her talent at the microphone, ensures Penrith Show will be worth listening to!
