Gresford Show boasts strong competition over our two day show. In 2021, our campdraft will offer the following classes; 

~ Junior Draft

~ Juvenile Draft

~  Maiden Draft

Due to the availability of cattle a decision has been made to run the Novice and Maiden in conjunction. Competitors who elect to run in the combined class will have their scores applied to both the Maiden and Novice.

On Friday the Junior and Juvenile draft brings together some of the most talented riders from across the district. The Juvenile draft is proudly sponsored by Chris Dooley and Family and that Paterson River Pony Club with the winner being presented with a shield.

The finalist in our Friday open class will ride off in the camp draft final held on Saturday.

All competitor enquires should be directed to Josh Evans, Ring Master on 0418409013.
