Thrilling campdraft action

See riders at their thrilling best on Sunday March 6 at the Wingham Show Campdraft.

Campdrafting is an exciting sport with a high level of skilled horsemanship required.

Riders need to be in complete control of their horse as they guide them through a strict routine of ‘cutting out’ single cattle and steering them through a specified course.
