Central and North Burnett Times - - BURNETT SPORT -

COAL­STOUN LAKES’ Belinda Staib com­peted with suc­cess at the Rocky Rush Stockman’s Chal­lenge and Campdraft last weekend at Grace­mere.

She placed sec­ond over­all in the Hitch­ley and Har­row Rookie Stockman’s Chal­lenge rid­ing Rainy Acres, who is by her own stal­lion, Ram­bler KD Acres.

Staib said she was up against some tal­ented and top rid­ers from all over the coun­try.

“I was beaten by a high-level com­peti­tor, Jody Chal­la­combe, rid­ing One Moore Bat­tle,” she said.

“I was also in the fi­nals on the same mare, Rainy Acres, and Halls Hostage in the third round Rock­hamp­ton Cup Open Campdraft,” she said.

Staib said she was ex­tremely happy with her re­sults.

“My horses gave me 100% for the whole weekend,” she said.

“It was great to be rid­ing a mare by my own stal­lion.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to rid­ing some more horses sired by him next year.”

The win fol­lows Staib’s vic­tory in the ladies campdraft at Gayn­dah re­cently.

The Scott Shoo and Josh Smith Open Chal­lenge win­ner was also a Biggen­den lo­cal in Nathan Wil­son rid­ing Clancy, owned by Dar­ren Jones.
