Mulgildie Saddle Cloth Campdraft: Full results

AFTER a one-year hiatus due to unusually dry conditions, the Mulgildie Saddle Cloth Campdraft is back with a bang in 2018.

Bernardine Hassall was proud to see two of her young children rewarded for their efforts on Saturday morning.

While their father Rem was celebrating his victory in the Maiden class, Liam Hassall, seven, took out the Mini event and Heidi Hassall, three, received the award for most encouraging young rider.

The Mini class is open to competitors under eight years of age - too young to compete as juniors - providing a rare opportunity for the budding riders to experience a draft.

Both Liam and his sisters learned to ride at a young age and are members of the Theodore pony club.

The Hassalls hone their craft as managers of Camboon Station - the largest privately held cattle station in the Banana Shire.

Mrs Hassall hoped other campdrafts will follow Mulgildie's lead and introduce a Mini class.

"We compete and it's nice for the kids to be able to take part,” she said.

"It's a bit of fun for the kids and it encourages them to get involved in drafting.

"I think more of them should offer it.”
