Saddling up for a Tiny Tot win
IF LITTLE Cody Hill has his way, he'll be joining the rest of the rodeo-riding ranks in his family in no time.
The four-year-old horseman is an entrant in this year's Warwick Rodeo Mr Tiny Tot competition and absolutely loves the rodeo life.
"I like poddy riding, mutton busting, calf roping and team roping," he said.
"I'm riding my horse Shorty - he's lots of fun to ride around the block."
For Cody, rodeo runs in the family, with his mother Kathy Moses winning the Warwick Rodeo Queen Quest back in 2001.
"Cody's dad team ropes and calf ropes," she said.
"Cody's older sister Jorja won Miss Tiny Tot last year."
Also competing this year is Cody's cousin Savannah Halley, who is an entrant in the Junior Cowgirl category.
Ms Moses said Cody had already begun competing in rodeo events.
"He's competed in dummy roping competitions," she said.
"He's also done a bit of junior barrel racing."
Cody is one of 25 competitors in the Warwick Rodeo Queen Quest, with judging to begin tonight at the Warwick Showgrounds.
Contestants will face the judging of their horsemanship skills tomorrow, before one-on-one interviews and the presentation night.
