thanks cc
ws- we went fairly well. the quarter horse i rode is very cowy so she pretty much did it for me haha. lost my stirrup throughout one round so that one failed haha.

other than that we went really well!

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!

Ohhhh, seems like needing a lot of cooperation from the cow lol.
