Spirited Mt Perry event
A STRAY cow was no match for spectators at the Mount Perry Breast Plate Campdraft.
The cow escaped from the livestock area but quickly met its match when several horse riders rounded it up and coerced it back into the pen.
Then it was business as usual, with a “well done boys” by the announcer and a reminder to spectators to “leave a gate the way you found it”. The weekend saw great weather and some fine horse riding skills.
Campdraft secretary Anna Dingle said the committee was very happy with the event, which saw 519 first round runs.
“The weather was a winner all round and good spirits were evident for the weekend,” she said.
It was typical of a Mount Perry event, with great hospitality and friendly faces greeting visitors around the showgrounds.
The majority of the cattle was donated by the Habermann family of Eastern Creek at Mount Perry. They were all driven on foot to and from the campdraft.
