Hi Everyone,

Please note, Manumbar draft now opens on the 7th April, 12 Noon - Not Friday as previously advertised





Hi Everyone,

The Alpha futurity saw the Future Stars Leaderboard jump from 4 horses to 11 that are now qualifying

Peter Black and RAINSTORM have set an incredible pace early on with an average 87.67 based on 3 scores from 4 starts

The best 3 scores will qualify so there's a few contenders already chomping at Blacky and Rainstorm heels, including Karl Burton sitting on an 89.00 after only 2 starts riding TWO BOB AN ACRE!

Karl also has all 3 back in into the Futurity Final at Alpha out of 11 finalists (First rounds only apply for the FSS leaderboard, btw)

The next events are scheduled for Boulia, Ridgelands and Kragra next weekend

Good luck to all the youngen's out there!



Thanks to Ted Bugden and the Kumbia committee, there is now a Saddle up for grabs for the
winner of the Novice!



Due to excess nominations and given the opportunity to fit everyone in, Kumbia have made the following changes to their program:
Competitors now restricted to 10 first round runs
  1. The Maiden and Novice is now combined ($25 Maiden, $35 Novice, $45 Combined)

  1. Logon to Campdraft Central
  2. Re-nominate your Maiden and Novice horses as required
  3. Reduce your nominations, if necessary, to meet the 10 runs per person restriction
  4. Re process as normal
If you could please do so in the next 48 hours, the committee would appreciate it immensely.
Those that aren't re-processed by Saturday will automatically be deleted.
Congratulations to Kumbia for fitting everyone in!

Campdraft-Central-Future-Stars-Series-Press-Ad-Concept-(1).jpgHi All,

The Future Stars Series for 2014/2015 series is now available here:

Future Stars Series Leaderboard

As we mentioned, we have scaled back the series - there won't be a final but we can confirm, thanks to Wally Rea's generous support, there is still $3,000 up for grabs.


  • Capella
  • Alpha
  • Kragra
  • Bouila
  • Ridgelands
  • Springsure

Here's the rules:

  1. Series runs from August 1st, 2014 to July 31st, 2015
  2. Any committee that uses Campdraft Central and runs a Futurity (Horses Under 5) are automatically eligible.
  3. Horses that have 3 or more scores are eligible.
  4. Horses that have more than 3 (was 5) starts, only the best 3 (was 5) scores will be counted in the average. - Rule changed due to no final
  5. The series is open to any horse, Under 5 years of age as of July 31st 2015
  6. Horses can have started in a draft.
  7. At the end of the series, the top 5 horses will need to be verified, either by registration papers or a vet certificate, for age verification
  8. Prize Money breakdown is as follows (all prize money includes GST):
    1st: $1500
    2nd: $900
    3rd: $300
    4th: $200 
    5th: $100  
  9. Any disputes regarding scores must be made within 3 days after the end of each draft directly to us - not the participating committee.
Thanks everyone for the feedback in the past couple of days.  I was optimistic about finding more prize money through sponsorship but didn't have much luck.
If you would like to sponsor for the 2015/16 series, please get in touch as we are hoping to build on the overwhelming support and interest we've had so far about finding Australia's best young Campdraft horses!


Hi Everyone,

Exciting news for all those with Futurity horses in the south / south east - Kragra are having their first - and one of QLD most southern - Futurity!

The Futurity draft is sponsored by Pete & Shari's Haymac Campdraft Horses and is for horses Under 5 years old (4 years or younger)

The Futurity will be part of our "Future Stars Series" leaderboard

We've had to scale back the series for 2014/15.

We're hoping to make it bigger for the 15/16 Series.

Anyways, get your noms into Kragra next Wednesday at Noon for a chance to get your younger horses going



Hi Everyone,

Since 2011, Campdraft Central has never allowed competitors to nominate in more than one draft on the same weekend, when they were geographically close together.

Recently, we've changed it so a notice appears now regardless of where the drafts are.

After some feedback from competitors and with the new 24 hour nominations, at this stage it will work in the following way for Kragra and Kumbia opening next week:

1. Kumbia opens Monday at Noon
2. Kumbia committee will settle nominations Tuesday night
3. For those successful, you won't be able to nominate for Kragra on Wednesday at Noon
4. For those on a wait list (if any) at Kumbia, you'll be able to nominate
5. If you are successful at Kragra, you nominations will automatically be removed off the wait list at Kumbia

This isn't an ACA rule or anything - its just something that was implemented years ago based on the feedback from secretaries.

We wanted to ask your feedback on this issue as well - should you be able to nominate in two drafts on Campdraft Central, be accepted at both and then you decide which one to scratch?

Please leave your comments here



Hi Everyone,

Big thanks to the ACA Councillors and office staff, in particular Que Hornery, Trader Wilson and Sean Dillon, for hosting the Nomination forum in Roma last week.

There was a suggestion about Campdraft Central having a 24 hour period for people to nominate, rather than this bull rush at 8PM at night, which never suits everyone.

Capella have elected to adopt this new "24 Hours to Nominate" method which we are currently building into the system.

Capella's nominations will open early March.

After early nominations are accepted, the way it will work, in essence, is that everyone can enter their nominations, and elect how they want to pay, within the 24 hour period.

This nominations will have a HELD state.

At the end of the 24 hour period, the committee will then elect to add restrictions, as necessary, to try and get as many people in as possible.

In the event that there are too many nominations still after restrictions, the competitors will be drawn at random and invoices will be automatically issued.

For those on the wait list, this order will be drawn at random as well.

Whilst its a new concept, it will take a bit of tweaking and thanks to the Capella committee for electing to be guinea pigs.

As we all know, you might still end up on a wait-list but the biggest advantage is that there is no rush, as there is with the current method and will be more convenient for a lot of you.

Committees can still elect to use the "Open until they are full" method through Campdraft Central if they choose.

We are working closely with the ACA Nomination Sub-Committee and our secretaries to develop and trial this new method.

We're hoping this will give committees the best chance in applying restrictions based on the number of nominations that have come in.

As we must always remember and respect, IT IS THE COMMITTEE'S DECISION how they handle their nominations.

If anyone has any questions or feedback, please leave them here or contact me on 0488 258 322 as I'd love your feedback

2014 M.I.C. (Most Impressive Competitor) - NIKKI HOFFMANN

NIKKI.jpgSo excited about the lovely Nikki Hoffman scoring a mammoth 90 points on Peter & Dalmarie's LAROONA SABRANO in the first round of the Ladies!

Each year, I give the MIC (Most Impressive Competitor) jacket to someone who absolutely blows us a way with their determination, stunning performance and who represents the charming nature of this great sport. Harvey Wakeford, Steve Comiskey and Courtney Roberts have won the previous years jackets.

After not being out much this year, I was a little lost about who to award it to until BANG!

Saturday afternoon, Nikki and KOORALA REANNA ran a smokin' 89 and after seeing her performance through both challenges and campdrafts this year, it was an easy decision.

And the phenomenal 90 just then in the Ladies first round at Warwick proved how incredible her improvement over the past year has been

Congratulations agai
n Nikki - the Jacket is in the post - and good luck on Friday!

Keep an eye out for a story in the Warwick paper.....
