Rodeo at­tracts stars

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

TWO in­ter­na­tional rodeo queens are ea­ger to ex­pe­ri­ence Aus­tralia’s rodeo cir­cuit – as long as they don’t en­counter any snakes or spi­ders.

Miss Rodeo Canada Brit­tney Chomis­tek and Miss Rodeo Amer­ica Keri Sh­effield have landed Down Un­der to at­tend the Aus­tralian Pro­fes­sional Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion Na­tional Fi­nals in War­wick this week­end.

The duo stopped off in the Lock­yer Val­ley on Mon­day, vis­it­ing pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tions be­fore head­ing south to War­wick.

“Even in the States, we rodeo dif­fer­ent in every state,” Ms Sh­effield said.

“The events are all the same but each show has a dif­fer­ent vibe and I’m ex­cited to see how Aus­tralia rodeos. I’m sure I’ll find sim­i­lar­i­ties but also dif­fer­ences that I can take back home and tell peo­ple about.”

Ms Chomis­tek was ex­cited to see the ad­di­tion of cam­p­draft­ing to the week­end card, along with the crowd that was ex­pected to at­tend the event. — Ali Kuchel
