The iconic Stroud Rodeo and Campdraft has run for more than four decades. It transforms the tiny village of Stroud into a mecca of bullriding and campdraft on the third weekend in September.
The event is on this weekend September 15 and 16 at Stroud showground.
Last year Emma Malone and Aaron Handerson took out top ribbons in the campdraft while Troy Burtenshaw took out Open Bullride and Nichole Fitzpatrick claimed victory in the barrel race. The rodeo is a not-for-profit event and funds raised, after expenses, will be donated to the Hunter Medical Research Institute.
