Horsesports will be back at the Tenterfield Showground this weekend for the Tenterfield Junior Campdraft and Rodeo. The event is affiliated with the ABCRA (Australian Bushmen’s Campdraft and Rodeo Association), meaning competitors will be out to earn points.

Campdrafting begins at 7am on both Saturday and Sunday, starting with the 17 & Under 21 years age group and working down to the 8 & Under 11s. There’s $300 for the top performers in each age group, and a prize for the highest cut-out score.

A sporting program will run concurrently with the campdraft, starting at 8am on both days. Events include bend, barrel, flag, Bondfield Bounce, and Scudda Ho Stockrider races.
