The sport is unique to Australia and growing in popularity both in the competitive filed and with those wanting a better understanding and relationship with their horse.
Many of the skills you will acquire will assist you with general riding and working tasks around your property.
Horses are no different from people in the way they have individual personalities, quirks, likes and dislikes, learning to read the queues they are giving you and responding appropriately will make you a better rider and help you develop a better partnership with your horse.
The idea behind the sport is to choose a beast from the group assembled and then proceed to cut them out from the rest. The beast will try to manoeuvre around the horse and rider to join back with the mob, it is the riders job to keep the beast separated until the judges have had time to observe the riders skill level. The beast is moved out of the arena through a gate.
This requires a high degree of skill from both the horse and the rider and it is Rod’s job to help you learn how to work togther the achieve this goal.
What makes our campdrafting different from everyone else is the hands on practical way we teach.
You will get 10 opportunites to work fresh cattle throughout the weekend with a judged run at the end.
The first day is about building a foundation and bond between you and your horse. Helping you through any problems you may be experiencing.
We begin by talking to you about what you can expect over the two days, consilidtating the basics so we have something to build on.
We will film each rider and go through the video with you that evening so you can see where you can improve. Our gusets find this invaluble as they can see first hand what they are doing.
