Jamieson the Trick Horse

Horse trainer Steve Jefferys wrote to Burke’s Backyard to tell us about his black stallion, Jamieson. Jamieson, aka ‘Spud’, is a 7 year old Australian Stock Horse. He has a huge repertoire of tricks including:

retrieving a ball that has been kicked to him
answering questions with a nod
lying down on command
sitting up like a dog
pulling the saddle cloth off when being saddled
rearing on command
standing on a pedestal and balancing on a tiny surface area
holding a whip in his mouth and cracking it

Jamieson, Steve and Jana the Border Collie entertained spectators at the Horsley Park Equestrian Centre during the 2000 Olympics. Jamieson also works as a stock horse, and does dressage, jumping, hacking and one day eventing. He has won many awards in shows and has also appeared in many advertisements.
