Tiny tot ready for Warwick Rodeo

SHE may be pretty in pink, but six-year-old Anna Hegerty's favourite colour is decisively light green.

And she'll be hoping to turn the other competitors green with envy as she takes part in this year's Warwick Rodeo Tiny Tots contest.

It's the first time competing in such a competition for Anna and she's pretty excited about the challenge.

Having just returned from a week at pony club camp, the wet weather has stopped her practicing on her horse, Jessie, as much as she would like, but she's not going to let that put a dampener on her efforts.

“My favourite event is barrel racing,” she told the Daily News.

“I've been getting quicker and quicker at it.”

Having received the encouragement award from pony club last year, Anna hopes this year will be her time to shine.
