Competitors are to negotiate a set course of jumps riding with a whip in hand and a drizabone. The course will included banks, rails, ditches and all set to be ridden at an optimum time. Riders will ride without a watch. Any faults will be penalized.
This is to showcase the Aussie bush skill and bring it to life, showing a true display of horseman ship and trust in each other. Competitors can choose to ride with or without a saddle to work their way through the obstacle course. This could include drags, side-pass, jumps and much more. A free-style at the end is their opportunity to show their unique talents, a sight not to be missed. A bridle MUST be worn at all time.
The competitor will start in the camp and cut one beast from the mob, taking it to the front of the camp to work the beast in a campdraft format. The rider will then call gate sending the beast into the large arena where the rider will have to maneuver the beast around a set obstacle course. This will all be done within a set time limit.
