The whack of horns against the race, the pull of a rope and the roar of the crowd.

These were part of the thrill of the Professional Bull Riders on the Murray tour at Barooga Recreation Reserve on Saturday night. About 25 riders from across Australia joined American champion Zack Brown and Frazer Babbington of New Zealand in the round which earned points towards a cup series in July.

Uralla rider Chris Lowe was the winner of the Barooga round.

About 2000 people passed through the gate for the second annual event, which also included a ute show, trade and food stalls and a DJ.

Barooga’s cricket, football and netball club and primary school parents’ committee volunteered with catering and other functions for the event.
