Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - ■ Court­ney Fowler

More than 120 jacka­roos from across the na­tion com­peted in the 2015 Onslow Rodeo ear­lier this month.

The char­ity bull ride event at­tracted six gun riders, rais­ing funds for the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice and five other lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The 2014 over­all best cow­girl Bron­wyn Hill and cow­boy Wade McCarthy re­tained their ti­tles af­ter im­pres­sive per­for­mances in the rodeo ring.

At the prize giv­ing cer­e­mony, all win­ners were pre­sented with cov­eted belt buck­les.

A big day of rid­ing was capped off with per­for­mances by bush poet Corin Linch, DJ Rev and coun­try mu­sic vet­er­ans Corey Livey, An­thony Tay­lor and the Gough Broth­ers.

The next big event on the Pil­bara rodeo cir­cuit will be in Pan­na­won­ica from Septem­ber 3-5.
