Tablelands Advertiser - - CLASSIFIEDS - Bron­wyn Wheatcroft

A FAST, ac­tion-packed night was en­joyed by about 1000 people who at­tended the Mount Car­bine Bull and Bronc Ride last week­end.

The event started about 5pm on Satur­day at Mount Car­bine Rodeo grounds with nine dif­fer­ent events held over the evening.

This year marked the 17th run­ning of the an­nual event.

Mount Car­bine Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion sec­re­tary Karen Ped­er­sen said there were no bad in­juries on the night and the crowd was well en­ter­tained.

“There was one lit­tle fella that got hurt but it wasn’t ma­jor,” she said.

“Satur­day night we pre­sented Lach­lan Ben­sted with a buckle for 10 years as the MC for the event.”

Rodeo-go­ers danced un­til 2am while en­joy­ing all fes­tiv­i­ties of the night.

In the open bull sec­tion only one rider stuck on for eight sec­onds out of 14 riders.

There were 28 novice bull riders with only two mak­ing time.

Ped­er­sen said the as­so­ci­a­tion was grate­ful for all the spon­sors who do­nated money, vouch­ers and in-kind sup­port and those who vol­un­teered their time.
