RIDERS TRAVEL FROM ACROSS NSW TO WAGGA

Riders travel from across NSW to Wagga Wagga

 

RIDERS from Tooma, Junee and Tumbarumba are some of the front runners for placings in the Wagga Wagga Rodeo on Saturday.

The rodeo is for championship points in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association so has attracted some of the best riders in the nation.

Tooma cowboy Brad Pierce has won a rookie all around title in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association in America and will compete in a field including Rosewood rider Tim Hammond.

Junee rider Matt Hedlund is second in APRA standings in steer wrestling and will face his toughest opposition from Victorian star Terry Evison and Scone rider Heath Nichols.

Hedlund needs to win money at Wagga Wagga to stay in touch with standings leader Lee Kimber from Victoria who is making the trek to a rodeo in Peterborough, South Australia, this weekend.

In bareback, Tumbarumba rider Ben Hall is one of the favourites.

A strong field of 25 has nominated for the breakaway roping including reigning APRA champion Stephanie Gard, of Table top in New South Wales.

There are 159 nominations for the rodeo, including Bob Holder in team roping.

Holden hails from Cootamundra and has been competing in Australia and America for the past 60 years.

Being in his 80s hasn’t stopped Holder from competing and he has made the trek to Mt Isa and Warwick in recent years to compete against the best of the best. He is in team roping at Wagga Wagga.

Pro tour titles for most money won in the season are on the line in the APRA with less than three months remaining this season.

 

Wagga Wagga Rodeo will commence on the Saturday 7th February, 5pm at the Equex Arena.
