Most of the below is from the Craig Giles website.
On the 19th of February 2006 Craig Giles was given the honor of officially opening the Alcheringa’s Hall Of Fame at Wellington in South Australia by its proprietor Mr David Williams. David is the nephew of the legendary R.M. Williams and has the same love of horses and the Australian way of life flowing through his veins. David said “I chose Craig to do the official opening because of his professional approach to everything he does and because of his popularity and rapport with people Australia-wide. I feel both Craig and his wife Rosalynne are good ambassadors for the museum and country music in general.”
David Williams is best known for the training and showing of the beautiful Andalusian Spanish Dancing Horses which he has done since 1950. David has performed for Royalty and at shows and festivals all around the country. He has bred many champions, won countless accolades, broken many records and worked alongside most of our great country music artists past and present. David owned and trained Australia’s first Line Dancing Horse, Domero. Domero and three more of David’s magnificent horses were chosen to feature in the block buster movie, Lord Of The Rings. The producers of the show were so impressed by the performances of the four horses that they gave David a priceless collection of Lord Of The Rings memorabilia. The Lord Of The Rings collection as well as memorabilia collected over the past fifty years can all be viewed at the museum at Dave’s place Wellington SA.
Dave’s place was on the Murray Bridge to Wellington road between Jervois and Wellington on the South side of the Murray River.
David has held a number of Country Music functions at his place since 2006 with profits mainly going to the RFDS (Royal Flying Doctors Society)
In November of 2009 Dave was awarded the SACCM Industry Award.. photo here
