Junior Stockman's Challenge
Rosedale Complex - Murrurundi
Please join us at the Rosedale complex, it’s free admission to watch over 50 children, some as young as 4 years of age tackle the Bareback Obstacle Course, the Pack Saddle and the Whip Crack, they also have to demonstrate their skills in the Stock Handling, Hoof Maintenance & the X-country Obstacle Race - incorporating speed, precision, skill and most importantly control.
Originally designed as a training day for the Junior King of the Ranges - Stockman's Challenge and now in conjunction with NSW Pony Club Association regulations - this multi-phased competition now stands alone on its own merits as the first and only event of its kind in the state.
4 age groups will compete for a custom made belt bucket with thanks to major sponsors Paul & Maureen Bowd, Kerrie Tibbey of Goodwood Farm, Stephen & Kathy Irwin and Waverley Station. Other prizes include Horse Rugs, Bridles, Trophies, Horse Feed and much more merchandise from our very generous sponsors who enable us to promote the traditions of the Australian stockmen and women from times gone.
We hope to see you there!
