Competitors and spectators flocked to the Cobar showgrounds last Saturday for an adrenaline filled day of non stop rodeo action.
Despite being the first rodeo for Cobar since 2002, the committee received an astonishing 276 entries.
Cobar rodeo committe president Cameron Cutting said the motion to hold rodeos again began when “someone said let’s have a rodeo meeting.
“I was elected president and the committee just pulled together and we got it happening,” he said.
“The community have paid for  [the rodeo] through their sponsorship, kindness and donations. If they couldn’t give us money, they donated their equipment and machinery to get the grounds in order.
“Today is really important for the community. It’s a great time for us to just get together in the bush.”
The rodeo consisted of a full day of events including the ever popular bull ride and saddle bronc which offered plenty of excitement for the eager crowd.
Other popular events included calf roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing and the inaugural Cobar Rodeo Princess competition.
“The day has been excellent,” Cameron said.
“ It has more than met everyone’s expectations and I just can’t thank everyone who has been involved in running it enough.
“We want to continue to run this event and make it  bigger and better in the years to come.”
