Campdrafting involves cutting a cow from a mob, then working it around the camp (the pen type thing) and then eventually taking the cow through the gate and out around the pattern, which is a left hand turn around a pole, a right hand turn around a pole and then up around and through two poles (also known as the gate). It's popular here in Australia. There's a fairly recent thread on HF somewhere explaining in more detail if you do a search and there's a video from the Paradise Lagoons draft as an example.

Great pictures Can He Star! Campdrafting is always a lot of fun :) Matilda looks like a fun horse to ride!
