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.

The win­ner of the E J Payne Maiden Draft was Scott Hayes with horse Daddy’s Girl on a score of 163 points.

The Ru­ral Bank Novice First Draft was Craig Radke rid­ing horse Plover with a score of 187 points.

The Novice fi­nal win­ner was An­drew Ah­ern, rid­ing Ge­orge, with 155 points.

The Mun­dub­bera Shed Boss Open Draft (First) went to Craig Radke, rid­ing horse Col­lette, and John Lin­den­mayer, rid­ing horse Cir­cus, with a score of 87 points.

The Mun­dub­bera Shed Boss Open Fi­nal was won by Scott Hayes rid­ing Sap­phire on a score of 168.

The G P Webb Me­mo­rial Ju­ve­nile Draft was won by Ethan Shep­hard rid­ing horse Mem­ory on a score of 79.

The Ray and Deb­bie Charles Ju­nior Cat­tle Work­ing Draft was won by Matthew Davies rid­ing horse Bluff Down Bega Boy on a score of 83.
