SOUTH QUEENSLAND SUCCESS IN JUNIOR RODEO

MT Tarampa cowgirl Cheyenne Whitwell will be one to watch in the new Australian Professional Rodeo Association open season after proving to be the best junior in the 2014 season.

Whitwell was in the top four all season in open breakaway roping and recorded a third and fourth at the finals but it was in the junior barrel race where she shone at the Queensland State Equestrian Centre at Caboolture in the National Finals Rodeo.

She was first in round 1, second in round 2 and third in round 3 to win the junior barrel racing title buckle by almost half a second from Nathalia, Victoria, rider Gracie Tyrrell, and Table Top (NSW) star Ellie Gard.

At the end of the 2014 season, Whitwell won the buckle for junior high point cowgirl after third placings in the standings in the barrel race and breakaway roping.

Whitwell is one cowgirl equally as good in barrel racing and breakaway roping so is a great chance to win an open all around cowgirl title in the years to come.

Her first chance in Queensland this season to take the early open standings lead will be at Nebo on May 24.

She also has the chance to win prize money at five Queensland rodeos in a little over three weeks on the Northern Run starting at Taroom on July 19.

After the richest rodeo in Australia at Mt Isa on August 8-10, competitors will have the chance to travel on to the Northern Territory for three rodeos in mid August.

In a sport where many of the juniors win at open level, former Western Australia cowboy and now Pelleubla (Vic) rider Sally Malay proved to be the best junior steer rider in the business with victory at Caboolture on the back of three seconds in the three rounds. Sally also won the junior high point cowboy buckle with most prize money for the season which finished at Easter.

Campbell Hodson, of Townsville, won the breakaway roping at the National Final Rodeo from Jack Malay-Murphy, of Table Top (NSW) and Sally Malay.
