Best riders compete for trophy
Elite cowboys and cowgirls from across WA will make their way to the Mid West to compete in this weekend’s Eneabba Campdraft.
The competition will take place on Saturday and Sunday at the Eneabba Horseman’s Club, with competitors taking part in six events.
On Saturday afternoon, about 30 of the competition’s best riders will compete for the perpetual trophy in the Central Stock Care Restricted Open, with a top quality handmade bridle and cash prize up for grabs.
Eneabba Campdraft secretary Candy Hudson said there would be plenty of entertainment and admission was free.
“We’ve got some great items up for auction on Saturday night, including a handmade stock whip made in our club colours by awardwinning whip maker Peter Thorndike,” she said.
“There’ll be a band playing on Saturday night and people can come along and camp for the night. It’ll be great to see people come down.”
Campdrafting is a distinctively Australian cattle driving sport in which a horse and rider attempt to isolate one animal from a herd and bring it under control.
