Midwest Times - - SPORT - Adam Poulsen

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.
