Stroud Rodeo and Campdraft 2016

Hunter Gal spent a couple of days out in Stroud at the 2016 Rodeo and Camp Draft over Friday and Saturday of this weekend.

Friday’s action was centred around the smaller of the rings where the Camp Drafting was taking place. This is a fast paced event which focusses on both the skills of the rider and the horse, the steer is released from a pen and at the sound of the whip crack, the rider takes off in hot pursuit steering the beast around a series of obstacles while racing the clock. With enthusiasm running high, two of our reps here at Hunter Gal, Jeff McCarthy and Tony Kalesovski, took turns manning the gate as the competitors were leaving the ring after their event. John McCrumm was also in attendance on Friday and describes the event as a “great spectacle”.

Danny Lozanovski and Kyle Hesketh treated their families to a day at the Rodeo on Saturday for a glorious day of big crowds and lots of fun entertainment and action for the whole family. The days events included Bull Riding, Team Roping and Camp Drafting and made for a very enjoyable family day out.
