Red Horse – 1865–1880

Just south of Jubilee Park (1981) stood the Red Horse. Built about 1865 with Mr T. Oxley as proprietor, followed by Henry Warren in 1867 William Ball was there in 1875. Cattle sales were held in the yards in 1880, and it was the depot for packages for H. Haycock's Riwaka Passenger service in 1879. A red horse in a perpetual prancing stance was erected high on the facade.
