Rodeo attracts stars
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
