RODEO: Show favourite returns, don't miss it!

AFTER a few years away from the Warwick Show, a true crowd-pleaser returns to the showgrounds tomorrow night from 6pm.

Back due to popular demand the Warwick Show Rodeo, sponsored by Black Toyota, will stampede into action with a National Rodeo Association event, comprising of all the favourite rodeo events and featuring the inaugural Border Region Buckle Series.

The open bull riders will compete for the title, based on points gathered from the Allora, Killarney and Warwick shows.

Killarney was a wash-out this year, so the field is tight and most riders are in with a chance at glory.

Show chairman John Maher said the rodeo would also see barrel racing, steer and poddy rides and the saddle bronc.

"We've had a great response to nominations and 22 riders will take part across the bull riding events, so there'll be plenty of action for the crowds that's for sure," he said.

"Storm Boy is the feature bull of the rodeo - he hasn't been ridden successfully yet, so if the drawn rider can do it, they'll win $1000 thanks to Stuart Bond Auctioneer and Real Estate."
