Tyler is our Weekend Warrior after steer ride victory
WARWICK cowgirl Tyler Aspinall is the Weekend Warrior after winning the ladies steer ride at the New Year's Eve Rodeo.
While most of the ladies were bucked off early in their ride on the back of heifers from Clintonvale producer Kevin Ryan, Tyler stayed on the longest.
It was her second successive win at a New Year's Eve Rodeo.
Tyler started riding poddies at age 12 and has been riding steers for two years. She won the ladies buckjump at last year's Warwick Rodeo.
"I would love to be a rough stock rider but there aren't too many opportunities for girls,” she said.
"I am hoping to compete in a few rodeos this year.”
Tyler admits she is a bit nervous especially if the horse or steer played up in the chutes.
"The adrenaline rush is pretty high,” she said.
Her brother Hayden placed in the junior steer ride, father Mick competed in the brumby catch and mother Shannon in the celebrity barrel race.
