Scored a total of 180 in two different campdrafts yesterday at Warwick.
UPDATE: IT doesn’t happen often but one horse-and-rider combination scored a total of 180 in two different campdrafts yesterday at the Warwick Showgrounds.
Cameron Webster from Wandoan didn’t need any of his saddle bronc riding skill yesterday as he scored 89 in the morning on his horse Bob to be in the second group of scorers in the Pryde’s EasiFeed Warwick Gold Cup.
The same combination then took the lead in the Black Toyota Canning Downs Campdraft with a 91, the highest score of the day as of late afternoon.
He also scored 89 on Janelle in the Canning Downs Campdraft.
Webster has already qualified for round 3 in each draft so will have a busy weekend as he is one of the 15 finalists in saddle bronc for the Warwick Rodeo Australian Championships.
There are 6pm rodeo rounds on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and a 1.30pm Sunday round in saddle bronc.
If he wins the cup on Sunday, he will then have to concentrate on his last ride in saddle bronc less than an hour later.
Mac Shann on Miss Heart Acre, Mark Ruff riding Lohan and Steve Comiskey on Delta all scored 90 early in the Canning Downs Campdraft.
Glen Peterson was one of six riders on 89 after taking the early lead when he was seventh out of camp on Ceda Eclips.
Action will go into the evening today and resume at 5am tomorrow. Scores courtesy of Campdraft Central.
EARLIER: CAMERON Webster might be one of the best saddle bronc riders in rodeo but he has stamped his class as a campdrafter on day one of the Warwick Rodeo.
Wandoan-based Webster is one of a handful of competitors at the Warwick Showgrounds this week aiming for placings and prize money in both the campdrafting and rodeo.
In the first round of the Pryde’s Easifeed Warwick Gold Cup, Webster scored 89 on Bob to be equal sixth.
There were five combinations on 90 and five on 89 mid morning.
Webster has often been at the top of pro tour standings in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association in saddle bronc and has qualified for the Warwick Rodeo Australian Championships in 13th place.
With the top-15 taking carryover points into the championships from performances on the 2015 pro tour, Webster will need to place in all four rounds to win the title in a field with Warwick pair Michael Maher and Mark Collins at the top of the standings.
Campdrafting starts early morning each day to Sunday with the rodeo championships from 6pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 1.30pm Sunday.
