Former winner starts barrel racing finals with a win

RODEO: Teneille Angland is a past title winner in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association and hopes to add another barrel racing title this year.

She is competing on Black Power this year, a horse bred by her father, Bill Little.

Angland, of Springsure, won round 1 on Wednesday night for her best start to a national finals in Warwick.

"I have won the first round at a Warwick rodeo but not the first round of a Warwick finals before this year,” she said.

"Black Power is running really well this year.”

She isn't too nervous about the finals.

"Really, it is just another rodeo,” she said but she admits it was a bit nerve wracking to be first on course in a field of 15 on Wednesday.

"I got a time and then had to watch everyone else compete,” she said.

She was unplaced on Thursday night in the second of the four rounds.

She and husband Cody both started the Warwick Rodeo APRA National Finals with a win. Cody won the saddle bronc on Wednesday and came third on Thursday after deciding not to contest the bareback to concentrate on one event.

"Cody has bad knees so thought one event would be enough,” she said.

The couple is in Warwick with their sons Rowdy, 2, and Clay, seven months.
