Success for Bingara riders at Cubbaroo

August 5, 2020

Bingara riders had a successful weekend out competing at the annual Cubbaroo Campdraft, held at Burren Junction.

4-year-old Sophie waited eagerly all week to compete in her very first campdraft competition. Riding her horse, ‘Chic-a-million’, she came away with a score of 23 in the Sadler Family U8’s Cut-out. “She won a ribbon and $5, which she was over the moon about,” said mum, Megan Latham.
