THE LANDMARK CLASSIC
Established in 2008, the Landmark Classic has evolved to become Australia’s premier Campdrafting competition and world class performance horse sale.
After the setback of the Australian EI outbreak and horse movement restrictions, the Landmark Classic evolved with a small band of supporters, keen to forge ahead with both a passion and business focus on establishing a stable market for performance horses in Australia.
The inaugural Landmark Classic was certainly modest in its beginning with 129 horses catalogued in the first sale held at the Tamworth Showground over two cold days in May 2008. The sale turned out to be an immediate success with a top price of $54,000 achieved with 123 horses offered for sale with a clearance of 92%, grossing $1.2 Million at an average of $10,710.
After that first sale, the Classic concept continued to grow as it relocated to the then brand new AELEC facility in Tamworth, where it has developed into a mainstay event in the Australian Campdrafting calendar.
The Landmark Classic has progressed into Australia’s premier Campdrafting competition and a world class performance horse sale, boasting one of Australia’s richest Campdraft winner’s purses with $40,000 cash plus prizes awarded to the champion each year. The annual event now runs over 9 days and comprises of 6 feature events, 2 cash incentives and over $200,000 total cash and prizes.
