NEBO NEW YEAR'S EVE RODEO

THE best bull riders in the nation will be attracted to Nebo for the New
Year's Eve Rodeo this year.

The rodeo has $10,000 up for grabs in the bull ride and increased prize
money in all events so will rate in the top five for prize money in the
Australian Professional Rodeo Association.

While the Nebo Rodeo will be in the middle of the Christmas Run of seven
rodeos in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, there is no doubt
many of the bull riders will jump on a plane to compete at Nebo in between
rodeos at Yarrawonga in Victoria on December 30 and Tumbarumba in New South
Wales on January 1.

There will be a full program at Nebo in the undercover arena.

Jarrod Deguara is the highest profile cowboy from Nebo and has been a top
performer down the years in steer wrestling.

A strong contingent of timed event stars from Central Queensland will make
the trip north to Nebo or fly home from the Christmas Run to chase the prize
money on offer.

One likely starter at Nebo is APRA all around standings leader Shane Iker,
of Alton Downs.

Iker is first in steer wrestling, second in the rope and tie, and second in
team roping header standings.

Competing in the richest rodeos has the added benefit of boosting a
competitors chances of moving up the standings.

At the end of the season on April 30, the top 15 riders in each event will
qualify for the National Finals Rodeo at the Queensland State Equestrian
Centre at Caboolture.

Two of the riders to watch in the bull ride at Nebo will be Queensland pair
Ryan Storey and Kurt Shephard who are seventh and eighth on APRA standings.

Storey hails from Dingo and was second in the aggregate at the richest
rodeo on the circuit at Mt Isa in August behind winner Fraser Babbington,
the current standings leader and reigning title holder.

Shephard calls Atherton in North Queensland home and has form on the board
after a sixth in the aggregate at Mt Isa.

APRA PROGRAM: December 7 Rosewood (NSW); December 26 Myrtleford Golden
Spurs 60th Rodeo (Victoria); December 28 Deniliquin (NSW), Carrieton (SA);
December 30 Yarrawonga (Vic); December 31 Nebo (Qld); January 1 Tumbarumba
(NSW); January 3 Finley (NSW); January 4 Beechworth (Vic); January 18 Stony
Creek (Vic).
