Guns N Roses to Ride Again!
Along with his fellow, fearsome rough stock comrades, these bull, steer and bronc athletes will be exploding out of the chutes and putting Aussie cowboys to the test, this weekend at NOONAMAH TAVERN RODEO!!
BULLS, BRONCS, BARRELS, FREESTYLE MOTORCROSS, BURNOUT COMP and LIVE BAND!
Noonamah has it ALL!
Cowboys from all around Australia are converging on the top end to test their skills in this, the 3rd rodeo in the Noonamah series.
But a wild 8 seconds on the back of bulls and bronc are not the only rides to see. This Saturday, 11th July, will also see the tough cowgirls battling it out on horse back in the barrel racing.
Ask any barrel racer and they'll happily inform you that 'Heaven is 3 Drums and a Clover Leaf Pattern'. Come along and witness the awesome display of horsemanship, that is a cowgirl and elite barrel horse, working as a united team, setting a blistering pace around the course. Not only bringing the action, these women bring the bling and set the arena alight for all the lucky spectators.
Today for our blog followers, we are presenting an insight into barrel racing cowgirls, with an interview with the gorgeous Martha Louise Hepburn !
