TREVOR SCOTT ON BOARD WITH TROPHY SADDLE FOR FSS

trevor.jpg

Very exciting news for the Future Stars Series with Trevor Scott coming on board as Major Prize Sponsors, along with Wally Rea, Frankfield Stockhorses and of course, Steel Supplies Charters Towers!

Trevor and Deb love to see competitors doing well and suggested the saddle go to a Non-pro rider, which was a great idea!

Also, as they like to see young horses not being pushed too hard, they also wanted the saddle to go to a horse that had only competed in Futurities and not started in other drafts.

Big thanks to Trevor and Deb from Trevor Scott Saddles and the Monto Stockman's Store for their support - check out their website here http://www.montostockmansstore.com/.  They will also be at Moura on the weekend with their trade stall

CONGRATS TO MONTO SILVER BUCKLE!

CONGRATS TO OPEN COW HORSE WINNER LEAH READ!

Amazing and a spectacular site last night last with the Open Cow Horse challenge back on the menu at Monto Silver Buckle Challenges and Draft

There were big spins and even bigger stops down the fence and when cow horse is good, it's awesome as it was last night!

Thanks to Kevin and Naomi Purcell from 7Horses and part of the committee, who instigated putting the event back on! I'm sure there will be more of them on soon

And to top it off, Kevin and Little Biddy Acres win the Most Versatile Cow Horse - best aggregate across the Open Draft and Open Challenge with a 232.5!

Huge thanks to all cattle donors for the weekend!!!

Big thanks of course to Barry Bleys, Maree Hampson, Jo Cook, Stacey-lee Hyland, Paul, Wendy and Tom "Campdraft Central" Pownall for doing all the computer work for us, Tim Hutton and Alan Penney in the back yards, Lindsay and Hanna Penney for the great One Time Player service fee to all mares in the open final, Kerry Habermann and the ladies cooking (bless your soul Kerry for enduring that boy of yours...), Jason Cook for donating the tractor, Ken May for donating the Thomas Manufacturing drag, Corey Cowan for announcing, and Gavin Byrne for calling the Bareback last night. Always entertaining!

Awesome weekend and a real jewel on the circuit - thanks again to all involved in a stunning event!

Run another one next weekend - I'll be here!!

 

WINDSTORM LITTLE TED

TOP-GUN.jpgThanks to Regan & Katherine Lyons, from Top Gun Horse Training, for letting me show Windstorm Little Ted in the Rookies today at Monto Silver Buckle

I picked up Ted, the kind 4 year old gelding up two weeks ago, had a lap out at Clermont and whilst the run today wasn't the best (my 2nd challenge run ever), he's taught me just how different it is to ride a sensitive and responsive horse who's willing to please.

Ted is currently for sale and you can contact Katherine on 0458 245 689 for more info.

Katherine has been training me over the past 3 months and without her help and guidance, I wouldn't have had the confidence to show my horse, let alone her horse! Thanks mate and so happy with Lucy under your care for next season.

They've just re-branded their logo so checkout their Facebook page!

cheers
Clay

2 HORSE RESTRICTION IN @ MT ISA

2015-Program-1.jpg

For its inaugural year back, after a long hiatus, Suzy Logan, the Hacons and the rest of their committee were blown away by the response receive with over 1,200 first round runs, even with 10 first round runs (exclude Restricted Open)

They've implemented 2 runs per horse and thanks to the offer of more cattle from their most generous cattle donors, they've managed to get everyone inuzy Logan, the Hacons and the rest of their committee were blown away by the response receive with over 1,200 first round runs, even with 10 first round runs (exclude Restricted Open)

Those who need to take some horses back to two runs, please follow the link on your email and reduce them (note, it ACA rule excludes the ladies and the juvenile from the 2 runs)

Great to see a fantastic draft back on the circuit and its certainly going to make a few challenge competitors travelling to the 'Curry here at Monto this weekend, very happy!

thanks
Clay

PROGRAM CHANGE @ MOURA

To accommodate almost everyone, there's been some changes to the programMOURA.jpg
 
ENCOURAGEMENT IS NOW MAIDEN 4 MAIDEN (M4M)
To save cattle and give maiden riders a better chance of making a novice horse, your Encouragement nominations have been converted to a Maiden 4 Maiden nomination for $10.  
This is how it works:
  1. Your horse is nominated for both the Maiden and Maiden 4 Maiden
  2. You run your horse in the normal Maiden event and, for example, score an 87 - the Maiden 4 Maiden is not a separate event
  3. You may qualify for the normal Maiden Final
  4. You may qualify for the separate Maiden 4 Maiden Final
  5. The same horse can win both maidens
For those Maiden riders that aren't in the encouragement, you can add your horse to this event via Campdraft Central.  Remember, it must be nominated in both the normal maiden event and the M4M

10 FIRST ROUND RUNS IS IN PLACE (REDUCED FROM 12)
This has allowed an extra 8 trucks into the draft

NOVICE HORSES HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE RESTRICTED
To save more runs, these novice horses have been automatically removed

UPDATED PROGRAM
An updated program will be distributed shortly but here's the run down:

FRIDAY
  • Novice, Novice Final
  • Restricted (1 round only)
SATURDAY
  • 1ST Round Open
  • Juniors/Juveniles (CHANGED FROM SUNDAY)
  • 2nd Round Open
  • SAT NIGHT: Calcutta for Open Finalist
SUNDAY
  • 1st Round Maiden
  • Open Final
  • Maiden Final
  • Maiden 4 Maiden Final
