THE dust may have settled after the recent Mansfield Campdraft, but local competitors have not quite put away their horses yet.
The annual Mansfield campdraft is part of the Southern Campdraft Association, formed in the early 1970’s to provide insurance for competitors and their families in an event of an accident in this action packed sport.
Hosted by the Mansfield Agricultural & Pastoral Society, Carol Horan society secretary said the event went off very well this year with much appreciation being expressed by organisrs to all who contributed to its success.
Credited as being the fastest growing horse sport in the country, The S.C.A. has an average member growth rate of 17 percent each year, with between 400–800 competitor runs taking place each draft.
The campdraft season concludes next month with the Ivanhoe Campdraft on May 23 and 24.
