The World Championship Gold Buckle Campdraft 2019 saw 110 competitors take part, with over 4,000 people coming through the gates to watch Australia’s finest campdrafters battle it out for the World Championship Gold Buckle and the $100,000 grand prize, the richest purse in campdraft history. We are also pleased that for the first time, campdrafting (or any other horse sport outside of the Olympics), has been broadcast live, on free-to-air television in Australia.

The sport of campdrafting requires excellent skill and horsemanship, and the cleverness in selecting an animal from the mob that will run well, but is not too fast for the horse. Great prestige is bestowed on the winning horse and rider of the competition. This event offered over $250,000 in prizemoney.

All live stream footage and the daily wrap-ups can be viewed on our Willinga TV page.
