Boar Swamp Campdraft 2022

Next date: Sunday, 27 November 2022 | 03:00 AM to Sunday, 27 November 2022 | 04:00 PM


The club is run by local volunteers and annually hosts the Boar Swamp Campdraft. This year, the Boar Swamp Spring Campdraft is being held across the 25th, 26th & 27th of November 2022.

Campdrafting involves a mounted rider riding into a "camp" (corral or yard) which has six to eight head of cattle in it. 

The rider (cuts out) one steer or heifer from the cattle in the camp and brings that beast to the front of the camp and block and turns that beast at least two or three times to prove to the judge that they have the beast under control. The rider then calls for the gates to be opened. The rider then proceeds to draft (work) the beast around a figure of eight course in a larger arena. Generally, the course is set to the left and once the beast has gone around the left peg, it must then be drafted around a peg on the right. Once that is completed, the rider then guides the steer through the "gate" which is two pegs placed apart. Once gated, the Campdraft is complete.

The canteen will be open for breakfast and lunch. On Friday night lamb chops & sausages will be available at dinner for a gold coin donation, and on Saturday night there will be a BBQ dinner and entertainment.
