Riding high on sportsmanship
Campdraft just keeps improving
CAMPDRAFTING: Every year the nominations for the Mundubbera Show campdrafting keep increasing and this year was no different.
With six drafts taking place, riders had the task of navigating the field to ensure their beast made it through the rings.
Campdraft volunteer Kate Carige has helped out with these events for the past few years and said it was the sportsmanship she loved.
“I enjoy seeing the riders’ horse and cattle skills and the sportsmanship that comes from campdrafting,” Carige said.
“I believe the campdrafting did well this year and the cattle was good.”
Carige praised event volunteers.
“It’s great to be able to give back to your community and I love helping out; without volunteers these events just wouldn’t work,” she said.
