Pa­rade spot high­light of ca­reer

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

JOSEPHINE How­ell has taken out the Rodeo Princess at Cal­lide Val­ley Show in Biloela on her horse, Co­manche.

The 17-year-old Monto girl has been rid­ing Co­manche since she was 8 and while her horse was bro­ken in by some­one else, How­ell has trained him since.

The Rodeo Princess event is open to girls aged 13–18 and­was the feather in the cap for How­ell af­ter miss­ing a sim­i­lar event in Monto on a mi­nor tech­ni­cal­ity.

The event is judged on horse­man­ship, out­fit and ques­tions.

How­ell’s years of ex­pe­ri­ence with her horse was ev­i­dent through her su­pe­rior rid­ing skills. She tied with one other fi­nal com­peti­tor but cor­rectly an- swered enough ques­tions to win the event.

Be­ing crowned Rodeo Princess gave her the hon­our of rid­ing in the show’s pa­rade and she calls this as the high­light of her rid­ing ca­reer.
