IT WAS all horses, hats and a helluva good time during the first weekend of the Nutrien Classic at AELEC.
It's under a new name, but the annual event it still bringing the top-shelf quality in campdraft competition and sales and attracting people from across the country.
There's still plenty of time to check it out with the event running until Sunday, February 9.
The nine-day event is Australia's biggest campdraft and sale event, hosting up to 500 competitors, 300 horse handlers and 5,500 daily visitors.
Among the showpiece events will be the Nutrien Classic Campdraft, which offers $40,000 in prize money, while the winner of the Martins Stock Haulage Open Campdraft will claim an $8,000 winners cheque.
