2015 News May/June/July

We have had a wonderful show season with our challenge team this year.

Two of our horses Imprint and Opal competed at Middlemount and Monto Challenges for nice runs in both the wet and dry work, but not quite enough to make the finals.

At Grass Hut Campdraft our champion mare Just Opal with Nathan Wilson placed 2nd over all in the Under five Challenge, and 5th in the futurity Campdraft, and our young stallion Royalle Imprint placed second in the futurity draft.

We then went onto Cloncurry Challenge, where Royalle Imprint ran a lovely dry work run scoring a 90 under one judge, to finish in 11th position in the dry work, unfortunately a unlucky cow meant we didn’t make the final this year.
