Deniliquin Rodeo competitor Wendy Caban gives a little TLC to her horse Wiley after competing in the barrel race.
Deniliquin Rodeo Committee president Russell Offord said the Deniliquin Rodeo ‘‘couldn’t have gone better’’.
The event, held on Saturday, attracted more than 3000 spectators who were thrilled to watch some of the best bucking broncos and bulls.
Numbers were up on last year and both the spectators and riders were ‘‘very impressed’’, Mr Offord said.
‘‘It was a fantastic event,’’ he said.
‘‘It really couldn’t have gone better — it was an unreal rodeo.’’
Brad Pierce was named the all-round cowboy and winner of the saddle bronc open bull ride.
Mr Offord said he was an ‘‘excellent’’ rider.
‘‘The feedback from the event has been very positive.’’
Barrel racer of 30 years, Wendy Caban (pictured) was among the competitors.
While she didn’t get the scores she hoped for, Wendy was still all smiles.
Her horse, Wiley, was all tuckered out after the big race, but Wendy was sure to give her plenty of attention.
Mr Offord said he looks forward to the Deni’s next rodeo.
‘‘Hopefully it’ll be bigger and better again!’’
