THE picturesque property Starthdale will be the stunning backdrop for the Blue Mountain Campdraft this month.
The event will be held on August 18 and 19 at the Hamblin's property on Blue Mountain Rd.
The program this year will kick off on the Friday night for the first time with the inaugural Ladies Campdraft.
One of the organisers of the event Debbie Bates said the committee has not run a Ladies Draft in recent years and is sure the event will be well received by all Lady Drafters.
"The event will be held under lights and a great line of heifers will be walked from John and Rosalie Cox's Glensfield Station, Blue Mountain especially for the event," she said.
"Other cattle donors for the weekend are Keith & Judy Parry, Bell family Strathdee and Wright family Mt Spencer."
The action will continue on Saturday at 6am with the combined Maiden and Novice Drafts with separate finals.
"The Restricted Open Draft will follow - this event being for horses which have won a recognised Draft," Ms Bates said.
"Also included in Saturday's events is the Juvenile Draft for competitors under 17 years of age. Saturday night will feature the Stallion Draft, always a crowd pleaser with the breeding season just around the corner."
Ms Bates said the night will also include the Nebo Sale Horse Draft for horses purchased through the annual Nebo Sale.
She said all the sporting events run by the Sarina Pony club will be held on Saturday.
On the last day of the event, the day will begin at 6am with the Encouragement Draft followed by the first round of the Open Draft.
"Just before lunch the up and coming Mini and Junior competitors get to show the crowd how it's done. The weekend will wound up with the second round and final of the Open Draft," she said.
