Australia is an incredible country. Zach and I visited Oz in 2012, and it was life-changing. One thing I really loved about it was the horse culture. We spent some time at a campdraft, among other things, and we had a great time. So writing this travel piece for Chrome magazine was a lot of fun. We got to do some of these things while we were there, but after writing this article, I've added a bunch more activities for the NEXT visit Down Under. :-) Hope you enjoy!
This weekend I'm covering America's 1st Campdraft in Kiowa, Colorado. You can see my posts and photos on the American Quarter Horse Association's website HERE. Last spring, I went to Australia for a few weeks. One of the best parts of my trip was attending a campdraft in Beaudesert, Queensland. I wrote a story about campdrafting for the American Quarter Horse Journal and it appeared in the January 2013 issue of the magazine. If you're wondering what this sport is and why Quarter Horses are a really good fit, check out my article. You can read it in full HERE.
