I would like to know, too. I think it's camping with horses, maybe moving cattle, too?

While Wiki is rarely 100% right, it often gives a good overview:

LOL, Campdrafting is like the Australian version of Working Cow Horse (or maybe WCH is the American version of Campdrafting LOL). Now, I am no expert (you'd have to ask Wild_Spot to get the expert knowledge, she campdrafts), but I think it basically consists of driving a cow through a set pattern and then back through a gate.

Even the warmups they put those horses through are amazing. You should browse some youtube for Aus stock horses and campdrafting. Very impressive stuff

Heck yeah Paradise Lagoons! I'm somehow related to the people who own the place and it's in the same city that I live in. Paradise Lagoons draft this year had approximately 1742 horses competing.

Campdrafting is heaps of fun and it's basically cutting a beast from the mob and working it around the camp for 26 points then out around the pattern for another 70 points. The pattern is around a left peg, around a right peg and then up, around and through two pegs, which are called 'the gate'. There's another 4 points for working the course. You get eliminated for turning tail on the beast, losing control of beast or horse and losing the cow back to the mob twice. We did it in pony club and the clinics were always so much fun. I prefer assisting judging and running the events though as my horse just couldn't keep up with the cows, haha.

camp drafting

Camp drafting, is an aussie term, for mustering and shifting mobs of cattle from one part of the station to another which may take "x" amount of days, with each night unpacking the pack horse and camping on the spot over night and continueing the drove next day..

Here in NZ we just call this a cattle muster..also here in New Zealand we have back country station Huts we camp over night ...
