Australia’s premier Campdrafting competition and performance horse sale gets underway



Australia’s premier Campdrafting competition and performance horse sale, the 12th annual Landmark Classic Campdraft & Sale is currently underway at Tamworth’s Australian Equine Livestock Events Centre (AELEC)  – and it’s proving to be another action-packed event.
 
Some of the country’s top competitors are in town ready to battle it out for a share of a total cash and prize pool worth over $270,000.  It’s only day three of the nine-day event, and with two days of pre-works and four days of supreme sales to follow the first five days of competitive Campdrafting & Challenging events, there’s still plenty of action to come.
 
The Landmark Classic is free to attend, and tonight’s events kick off from 6pm with Happy Hour at the AELEC Bar during the final of the Prydes EasiFeed Australian Performance Horse Challenge.
 
Due to the growth of our competition program, the Campdraft finals have this year been split over two nights:
 
Tuesday evening’s proceedings will begin with Round 1 of the Dalgety Stallion Shootout, followed by Round 2 of the Prydes EasiFeed National Campdraft Council of Australia Champion Rider, AELEC Arena Bar “Dash for Cash” gelding incentive final, Mavericks Masters Campdraft final and Martins Stock Haulage Open Campdraft final.
 
Wednesday evening will see Round 2 of the Dalgety Stallion Shootout, the final round of the Prydes EasiFeed National Campdraft Council of Australia Champion Rider, Charlie Maher Memorial Young Guns Final and The Landmark Classic Campdraft Final.
 
Among other highlights, the Dalgety Stallion Shootout Final will be held in the indoor arena on Friday night, and promises to be a thrilling event.
 
There are also 60 trade site exhibitions on show, offering a huge range of merchandise from western fashion, artwork and homewares to saddlery and vet products.
 
Entry is FREE every day and evening, and www.landmarklive.com.au has the full program of events.
