Macarthur's WAR Soldiers

The Naked Horseman Court Case re-enactment

The story: In 1863 a 'man from a neighbouring station wagered he could ride into Macarthur and purchase a bottle of spirits in a complete state of nudity, and this disgraceful feat he actually accomplished'. It was later reported that 'a man rode into Macarthur, as a bet - sentenced to 6 months hard labour.'

In 2012, the townsfolk of Macarthur re-enacted the event, complete with a pink suited-rider!
