Jackson shows good form at campdraft
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.
