NOT just a sale of horses, the 44th an­nual Dalby Aus­tralian Stock Horse Sale brought with it cam­p­draft­ing events with plenty of cash prizes at stake.

Dar­ling Downs Stock Horse So­ci­ety pres­i­dent Jim Ryan said the event brought many happy peo­ple into the show­grounds.

“It was a great draft,” he said. “It was a great suc­cess. It’s in its 44th year.”

Cam­p­draft­ing in­cen­tives that ran on Fri­day of­fered cat­e­gories in­clud­ing the Open, the Fu­ture Cham­pi­ons in­cen­tive, the Don­rica Stock Horse Stud Geld­ing in­cen­tive and the Aus­tralian Stock Horse chal­lenge.

Josh Hur­ley, rid­ing Kirkby Stud Re­gal, won first place in the $30,000 Open, tak­ing home an im­pres­sive $10,000 in prize money.

The Five and Un­der Fu­ture Cham­pi­ons Cam­p­draft was won by Luke Coll­man, who took home a tidy $2200.

“All horses that are five years an un­der com­pete in that cat­e­gory,” Mr Ryan said.

“So, many horses that were bought at the sale last year came back this year to com­pete and try and win a bit of prize money.”

Craig Dav­i­son won the ti­tle in the Six and Over Aged Cham­pion cat­e­gory and scored him­self $3800.

In the Don­rica Stock Horse Stud Geld­ing cat­e­gory, David Bass­ingth­waighte came out on top, pock­et­ing prize
