Westpoint Station is a 17,000 acres/6,880 ha working cattle station, carrying 2000 head of cattle. It is the home of the most successful and truly legendary Campdrafter and his family in Australian history. Headquartered at Westpoint is also the Pete Comiskey Campdraft School, where the Comiskey’s breed and train the best campdraft horses in the world and where Pete opens the station to a selected group of individuals a few times a year, to learn from him.
Spending time with Pete and his family on Westpoint Station will introduce you how horses are bred, kept and trained on the property and will let you become involved in the every day life on an Australian cattle station.
Throughout your stay, Pete will share with you, his keys to his consistent success which spans his entire career and you will get so many insights which will add value to your personal development as a horse(wo)men and to the relationship you have with your own horse. However, best of all, you will be introduced to campdrafting and get plenty of practice opportunities, with a number of good runs with your horse and chasing plenty of those beasts (Campdrafting lingo for cattle) waiting to challenge you.
On day 5 and 6 of your experience you will be able to participate in one of Pete’s great campdrafting clinics during your stay. This will be a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed.
And there is much more to Pete’s sharing his insights and experience about campdrafting and to participate in some cattle work with him and his team. 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.
