Masters of the muster to compete at Copmanhurst Campdraft

WRANGLERS and Ariats will flood into Copmanhurst this weekend as the New South Wales Championship Copmanhurst Campdraft kicks off.

From midday Friday, the cattle will be herded, the horses saddled and the secretary of the event said we were in for a big weekend.

"We've got about 1000 runs at the moment with competitors from Kempsey, Armidale, Coraki and beyond," the secretary said.

Riders from 8 years old will compete in the draft, which is one of the largest in the region.

Events start from 6.30am on the Saturday and Sunday and a gymkhana will be held on the Sunday, followed by finals at about 2pm.

"It's good for the local competitors to have the draft so close by, and if the weather holds out it should be a good event all round," the secretary said.
