Tiny Tot back in saddle for title

SHE may not be the tallest Tiny Tot competitor but this little "country bumpkin" is certainly not short on personality or passion.

At just six years of age, Chelsea Bargh is busting for her second chance to shine in the Rodeo Queen Quest.

Mum Robyn said re-entering this year was not even a question.

"We didn't even make it to this year before she asked to do it again - as soon as she finished last year she said she was doing it again," Robyn said.

This mini horse-lover not only has a great time in the quest but her mum said it also helps her development.

"It is great that kids in the country - or anywhere really - can do this kind of thing," she said.

"She gets a lot of experience from it and the friendship is great. She is still friends with girls from last year.

"And the kids get to learn about the responsibility of having a horse and looking after it."

Although her bubbly personality is sure to win over judges, she is ready to back it up on the back of a horse.

"She has a new pony called Princess Porsche and she is looking forward to getting into the arena and showing what she can do," Robyn said.
