GALLERY: Tiny fans join fun of Warwick Rodeo

RODEO vibes may have inspired the outfits worn by students at Warwick Community Kindergarten today, but it's not an unusual look for the tiny country fans.

Teacher Tracey Waterhouse said children in her class often arrived rocking boots and shirts all year round, particularly budding cowboys.

Games also often revolved around cowboys and police, with the children setting up cowboy camping, including a campfire, as a game.

"I think it's rough and tumble, you have to be tough to ride the cattle and bulls,” Mrs Waterhouse said.

"I think they look at that and think, 'I can do that'.”

The children will enjoy activities revolving around the rodeo this week.

Mrs Waterhouse said they would watch videos and see pictures of the rodeo, as well as learn about the different equipment that often featured in the rodeo arena.

The winners of the Warwick Rodeo Queen Quest also paid a visit to the kindergarten today and will be returning to meet more children on Thursday.

Kindy student Bradey Hooke went along to see the campdraft on Monday night and was planning to go along to the showgrounds last night as well.

He goes to the rodeo every year and his favourite part is watching the bucking bull riding.

But Bradey is also a horse rider in his own right.

"I like them when they run,” he said.

Warwick Rodeo and Gold Cup Campdraft will run until Sunday at the Warwick Showgrounds.
