April Rally - Campdraft School
Tuesday the 8th April turned out to be a stunning day - perfect for our Campdraft School. We were very lucky to have Steve Arbuthnot, Paul Sheppard, Pat McCormack and Kelly Lovick come and give our members a fantastic insight into how to compete in a campdraft. The campdraft was set up from the Mansfield Campdraft held the week before and we even got to use REAL COWS!! Steve and Paul gave us all a talk on the general idea of campdrafting and then the whole group went off to the Cross Country Course to bring in the beasts, which looked like great fun - especially for Annabelle riding Jerry cowgirl style complete with the biggest bucks we have ever seen!! Once the cows were in, they split into 3 separate groups; one group chasing Steve on his horse around the course, the next group chasing Paul around learning how to move a beast around and the third group working with a real cow in the camp! Everyone looked like they were having a ball, the ponies were all looking very happy about a change of scenery, but all nice and tired at the end of it all. Huge thanks to Steve, Paul, Pat and Kelly for your expert help and to Bill Bryce and Paul Sheppard for the use of the REAL COWS!! Also a huge thanks to Glenn Fox for organizing the rally!
