The 10th annual Wellard Campdraft held over three days starting on 24 November in Pinjarra, featured highly bred and trained horses and their skilled riders running at their best in manoeuvring cattle around the course. The event was held at the McLarty family’s Blythewood farming property in Pinjarra with funds raised going to the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) (CLCRF).
The unique sport of campdrafting is a family affair, and most competitors take time out of their busy lives to have fun and participate in the three-day festival of events. This year’s Campdraft had two prestigious Open events producing outstanding winners. An evening barbeque on Saturday night gave those involved an opportunity to let their hair down and socialise.
Wellard Limited Executive Director of Operations, Fred Troncone, said the livestock exporter was proud of its commitment to such a successful event.
“Being involved with the Wellard Star of the West Camp Draft over the years is a fantastic experience. To see the dedication of the riders and their horses and also the local community to come together to put the event on is amazing – thanks to everyone involved, particularly the McLarty Family, Boar Swamp Committee and Wellard,” said Andrea Alexander, Executive Officer of CLCRF.
Congratulations to the event organisers, winners and competitors of the Wellard Campdraft. We value your contribution to child cancer research through this outstanding annual event.
