On Saturday and Sunday, the cowboys launch from the chutes competing for over AUD30000 worth of prize money in steer wrestling, calf roping, barrel racing and, of course, the glamour events of the Saddle Bronc, Bareback and Bull rides. On Monday the Junior Rodeo sees the up and coming stars of the Rodeo circuit compete.
