Best of the West Stockman Challenge 2018

Best of the West

Back in April 2018 WA’s Inaugural Best of the West Stockman’s Challenge took place.  It showcased the skills of traditional Aussie stockmen.  I was lucky enough to head along to Day 1 to photograph some of the action.  The weather got worse throughout the day with the mid/late afternoon turning really wet, not the best for photography or for contestants and bystanders.

Events taking place on the first day were:  Bushman’s Whip Crack, Packsaddle, Stock handling, Bareback obstacle and Cross Country Riding.  Here’s a few of the images from the day.

Next year’s event will take place on 15th-17th Feb, hope to see you there.  Here’s a link their Facebook page so you can keep up to date with the latest news
