Bulls take on bulls at Clifton Rodeo

IT WILL be the bulls versus the bulls in one of the original events at the Clifton Show Rodeo on February 16.

The rodeo is being organised by Spring Creek resident Scott Keogh, a former professional cowboy who is also organising the Allora Show Rodeo on February 8.

Keogh said the best four bulls from six contractors would be in the bulls challenge.

"The bulls will battle against the cowboys and each team of four bulls will be scored by the judges," Keogh said.

"There will also be a young guns saddle bronc ride for rookies of any age, anyone who hasn't made the National Finals Rodeo in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association."

Contractors providing bulls for the challenge include Warwick contractor Frank Biddle, Matt Sharman (Tenterfield), Farley Brothers (Kempsey), Rick Ruhland (Mt Walker) and Dean Weller (Gympie). Keogh is still finalising a sixth contractor for Clifton.

Gill Brothers from Upper Horton in New South Wales will provide the horses for the rookie ride as well as the mules they used at the Warwick Rodeo for a separate competition.

The Clifton Show Rodeo will start at 7.30pm on February 16 at the Clifton Showgrounds.
