An­nual campdraft is ap­proach­ing

Mansfield Courier - - WHAT’S ON -

IT’S nearly time for the an­nual Mans­field Campdraft, with horses and rid­ers gear­ing up again for the April 5 and 6 event at the Mans­field Show­grounds.

Held ev­ery year, the campdraft will see 650 runs con­ducted over the course of two days – with at least a few thrills and spills guar­an­teed.

Cam­p­draft­ing is one of the few lo­cal events that do not charge a spec­ta­tor fee, and with food and re­fresh­ments avail­able, there is no ex­cuse not to go along and wit­ness first hand this great fam­ily fun event.

Cam­p­draft­ing is a con­test be­tween horse, rider and beast.

It be­gins with a rider cut­ting a beast from a small herd, with points given for horse and beast con­trol.

They then move to an out­side arena where the horse and rider try to “drive” the beast in a clover­leaf pat­tern.

Scores are given for both camp work and arena work separately.

The Mans­field Campdraft kicks off at 7am and all are wel­come.
