Blue Boars Bring Premiership back home

Narrabri crashed the party and started one of their own at Moree on Saturday, playing its best game of rugby for the season to take back the Central North title. The Blue Boars have now gone back to back in both minor and major premiership titles in the last two seasons.

Abbey legend to be honoured at Campdraft Carnival

Abbey legend to be honoured at Campdraft Carnival

Legendary stockhorse stallion, Abbey, and the two horsemen who forged his success will be honoured at a campdraft carnival at Narrabri Showgrounds this weeken (September 4, 5 and 6).

The ‘Abbey Dynasty Campdraft Carnival’ will be open only to descendants of the great sire and offer more than $20,000 in cash and prizes.

The event is one of the first of its kind and has received in excess of $23,000 in cash sponsorship.

All proceeds raised this weekend will be donated to pancreatic cancer and dementia research.

The carnival follows the recent death of Theo Hill, who stood Abbey on the historic Comara Station near Kempsey. Friends and associates of Mr Hill got together after his passing and decided to have a public tribute honouring his immense contribution to the stockhorse world.

Under Mr Hill’s management, Abbey sired a string of campdraft, showjumping and polocrosse champions that pushed the Australian Stock Horse Society stud book to an unbeaten 60,000 descendants.
