In 1979 Bobby Palmer & Nabinabah Breezette won the World Championship Campdraft at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. In seven rounds they finished with three firsts, two seconds, an equal second and an equal third. This was her first Royal Easter Show and she certainly did not let the Palmer family down. As well as her win in the World Championship Campdraft she also won the Supreme Led ASH Exhibit of the Show, plus the Best Station Horse and second in the Working Horse.
Nabinabah Breezette had her name added to the Honour Roll of winners in the Warwick Gold Cup (‘Melbourne Cup’ of campdrafting) in 1981, a feat she repeated in 1984. She also repeated her success in the World Championship Campdraft at Sydney winning this event for five consecutive years from 1981 to 1985. For five years in a row she won the Best Station Horse at the Sydney Royal Easter Show, and was twice the Australian Bushman’s Campdraft and Rodeo Association National Campdraft Horse of the Year in 1983 and 1984.
Other outstanding awards that Nabinabah Breezette achieved were Supreme Ridden ASH at Sydney Royal Easter Show in 1981 and 1982, Supreme Led ASH at Sydney in 1979, Champion Campdrafter at Melbourne Royal Show in 1981 and 1983, World champion Campdrafter at Chinchilla in 1979, Australian Campdraft Champion at Coonamble in 1985, and the Reserve Champion Led ASH at the Melbourne Royal Show in 1981.
At the peak of her competition career Nabinabah Breezette was nearly unbeatable, and she truly wears the crown as the Queen of Australian Stock Horses. Australia has seen many great horses in many different disciplines but it is doubtful if any horse could match the performances of this great mare.
