People will be up for a bucking great time when Australia’s best bull riders go head-to-head in Barooga.
New Zealand champion Frazer Babbington and American Zack Brown are also among the 40 cowboys billed to compete on Saturday, December 1.
It is part of the Warhouse Training PBR on the Murray Touring Pro Series and is at Barooga Recreation Reserve.
It is a qualifying event for the upcoming cup series in July — where riders will compete for more than $80
Brent Langley said organisers were looking to the weather forecasts for a fine day — after rain hampered last year’s inaugural event.
He said a ute show, trade stalls, XXXX retreat truck and a DJ were added attractions which hoped to draw crowds of more than 2000 people.
‘‘For those who have been to a rodeo, this is 10 times more exciting,’’ Mr Langley said,
‘‘It will be the ride of their lives.
‘‘It’s 100 per cent bull-riding action for the whole night.
‘‘People always want to meet the cowboys, but the real stars are the bulls — it’s the best athletes against the best athletes.’’
Mr Langley said most cowboys would arrive in Barooga on the back of competing in the cup series in NSW and Queensland.
District community groups will be involved with catering and parking — and money raised from the not-for-profit event will go back into the community.
Actor Matt Nable, of Underbelly: Badness fame, will attend and there will be filming for Nable’s new telemovie, Wrecking Ball — which depicts the story of a retired bull rider.
