Dirt, dust and mud flew through the air as the best competitors from around the region and over the border sped around the annual Armidale Campdraft course.

Riders of all ages packed out Armidale Showground for the three-day event with close to 1400 runs conducted throughout the course of the weekend.

It was a very lovely, family, social, successful event.
Warialda’s Kylie Barnett picked up a double victory with wins in the Novice B and Ladies’ divisions.

Tom Armytage also scored a double, winning the Novice A and Opens.

Ebor’s Chloe Seccombe won the Luke Brown Memorial Trophy for the highest scoring juvenile in the open age event.

Queenslanders Madison Hall and Des Burns won the Junior and Maiden A categories.

Local rider Peter Stevenson succeeded in the Maiden B division.

Ben Lomond’s Philip McCormack was the Open winner.

Campdraft committee member Lee Rose said this year’s competition was one of the most successful on record.

“It was a very lovely, family, social, successful event,” she said.

“We have been inundated with people sending thank yous, emails, commenting on Facebook what a wonderful time it was and everything like that.”
