Carlton Clydesdales a hit in Bega

THE iconic Carlton Draught Clydesdales have proven popular in Bega.

The four Clydesdales – Murphy, Andy, Marcus and Jack - made their way down Carp St on Tuesday morning to the Commercial Hotel.

The horses are pulling a dray led by Richard Gelder, who is accompanied by a dalmation named Cassie.

The team even had time to check out the Commercial’s Little Bottler takeaway service.

Trainer and Clydesdale team manager Glen Pate said the Bega trip had proven successful.

“So many people have turned out to see them, I’m happy with the turnout,” Mr Pate said.

“Doing this in the holiday period, it’s a good opportunity for locals and travellers from interstate to see the Clydesdales.”

Mr Pate said he has been involved with the Carlton Draught Clydesdale tours for 30 years.

“I’m still amazed by how much enjoyment people get seeing the horses – there’s a good feel with it,” he said.

After visiting the Commercial, the Clydesdales were outside the Grand Hotel, Bega, on Tuesday.
