Sun shines on competitors at Waikouaiti Rodeo

Ginny Nelson, of Christchurch, prepares to rope the back legs in the team roping event at the Waikouaiti Rodeo on Saturday.

Rodeo president Logan Rowland said the weather had turned it on for the event.

A decent crowd of about 200 lined the banks to watch the cowboys and girls compete in the first competition of the 2019-20 rodeo season.

One of the highlights of the day was the double set of wins Nicky Nichol and her daughter Ashleigh Jennings, of Alexandra, achieved during the second division and junior barrel races.

There were no serious injuries to the competitors or stock, Mr Rowland said.
