Jack­son shows good form at cam­p­draft

Euroa Gazette - - FIRE ACTION WEEK -

THE sport of cam­p­draft­ing is alive and well in Euroa with lo­cal rider Henry Jack­son com­ing run­ner up Cham­pion Ju­ve­nile rider (un­der 17) in last year’s South­ern Cam­p­draft­ing As­so­ci­a­tion Cham­pi­onship points.

It was a big achieve­ment as Henry only com­peted in a small por­tion of the al­lo­cated drafts in the SCA (South­ern Cam­p­draft­ing As­so­ci­a­tion) and he also com­peted in Gipp­s­land and ABCRA Cam­p­draft As­so­ci­a­tions.

The SCA cov­ers most of Vic­to­ria and South­ern N.S.W as well as part of South Aus­tralia.

It cur­rently has a mem­ber­ship base of over 1600 full and 390 draft per­mit mem­bers, see­ing the sport of Cam­p­draft­ing be­ing one of the fastest grow­ing horse sports in Aus­tralia.

Henry is the son of Tim and Chris­tine Jack­son and the sec­ond el­dest of four boys, who live and man­age ‘Ran­gal Park Stud’ which is one of Euroa’s lead­ing thor­ough­bred op­er­a­tions.

Cam­p­draft­ing is a unique Aus­tralian Horse Sport, a real Aus­tralian past-time, in which all the fam­ily can par­tic­i­pate, en­joy and catch up with friends, which the Jack­sons do well.

It was Henry who had a stand-out sea­son on his two mares, EJ and Mar­i­lyn, win­ning seven con­sec­u­tive Ju­ve­nile Drafts, six in a row in the SCA - Mer­ri­jig, Bac­chus Marsh, Wilby, Mans­field, Bar­nawartha and Co­bram.

He also won the Cham­pi­onship Ju­ve­nile Draft in Gipp­s­land at Yanakie.
