A lifetime of passion, commitment and determination has enabled Pete to become one of the most accomplished competitors in Campdrafting over the past thirty years.
Born in Rockhampton, Pete’s focus has always revolved around his family, his property, his horses and campdrafting. He grew up as a farm kid on idyllic cattle station near Capella and he has consistently and very successfully campdrafted since he was eight years old.
Being one of the most successful competitors in history in this uniquely Australian sport to date, Pete has been decorated with so many campdraft title wins it’s hard to keep track of all of them. He has won the ACA Open Rider Series 21 times and also took home the prestigious Warwick Gold, Charter Towers and Paradise Lagoons Acton Super Beef/Mort & Co Open, Clermont Gold Cups more than once, just to name a few.
With his clinics and campdrafting schools, Pete is giving back to the sport and making a contribution to taking the sport to a new level. He makes himself available to do clinics whenever he can and four years ago he was selected to head up the Australian delegation who took the campdrafting sport to the USA, holding some schools and judges clinics and the USA first affiliated campdraft.
Through the years of following his passion, Pete has developed a unique campdraft training program which has assisted him throughout his impressive career.
Participating in one of his clinics and campdraft schools will give you the opportunity to learn from and with the absolute best. He will will share with you, his keys to his consistent success which spans his entire career and best of all, you will get plenty of practice opportunities, with a number of good runs with your horse and chasing plenty of those beasts waiting to challenge you.
And there is much more to Pete’s campdrafing school. Being part of it will always remind you that campdrafting is a family sport, which embodies the lifestyle of the Australian cattlemen and women, born out of the love for the wide land, for the horses and cattle which all blends in perfectly with spending time with family and great friends.
Together with his partner Bryony and his two young children, Pete travels the country competing and running clinics but he always enjoys coming back to his personal training ground and home at Westpoint station. This is where he enjoys and cherishes the time he spends with his whole family and friends which truly energizes him to achieve new heights to maintain his unbeaten record.
