Nutrien Classic Horse Sale

The Nutrien Classic, formerly Landmark Classic, began in 2008 and has evolved to become Australia’s premier Campdrafting competition and Horse sale. Comprising five feature events and over $200,000 in total cash and prizes it is one of Australia’s richest Campdraft competitions.

Horses aged 5 or under and purchased from a previous Classic sale compete each year for a share in a cash and prize pool worth over $120,000 – including the $50,000 winners cheque.

The event is a huge drawcard to Tamworth with tens of thousands of people going through the gates at the AELEC.  In 2020 and sales eclipsed the $7 million mark for a fifth consecutive year and 2021 saw results blown out the water with sales exceeding $10 Million.

2021 saw the event enter its 14th year.  The event usually runs over nine days, comprising three full days of campdraft competition, before two days of pre-works leading into the main event, four days of auctions and sales.  2021 saw an extra day added at the beginning due to Covid requirements.

With the success of the Classic, Nutrien has steadily grown its Equine calendar which now includes The Annual Yearling and Broodmare Sale and Incentive Challenge at Toowoomba, along with the Nutrien Paradise Lagoons Performance Horse Sale and Incentive Campdraft.

Nutrien’s commitment has brought much-needed stability to the Australian Performance Horse Industry.
