WANDOAN COWBOY

WANDOAN cowboy Cameron Webster has narrowly beaten Tooma rider Brad Pierce to win the 2012-2013 pro tour title in the saddle bronc ride in the Australian Professional Rodeo Association.

Webster trailed for most of the season but success in the final six weeks of the season put him $250 in front of Pierce.

Pierce easily won the all around cowboy pro tour buckle after his strong showing in saddle bronc and bull rides.

Victorian timed event star Terry Evison was all around cowboy runner up with Central Queensland pair Shane Iker and Shane Kenny third and fourth and former Kalbar rider Lee Kimber fifth.

He was pro tour winner in the bull ride from runner-up Jason Mara, of Bouldercombe in Central Queensland.

Webster goes into the Jeep National Finals Rodeo at the Gold Coast Convention Centre on June 13-16 as one of the favourites along with Pierce, the Angland brothers Rhys and Cody, Millmerran cowboy Peter Moffatt and South Australian star Glen Kent.

Last year at the richest rodeo in the APRA at Mt Isa, Webster won the first round on Cheyenne Top Girl with a score of 80 and was equal fourth in the final to finish second overall behind Moffatt who won round 2 on Wild Man.

Pierce and Moffatt won the rounds at the famous Warwick Rodeo. Pierce scored 158 points to win the two-round aggregate by one point from Moffatt.

The top-15 in each APRA event have qualified for the NFR where each competitor starts on zero points. The rider who qualifies 15th has an equal chance to win the title as the pro tour champion.

Gundagai rider Adele Edwards has won the all around cowgirl title from Stephanie Gard, of Timbertop, New South Wales.

Charlwood rider Kerry Turner was the highest placed Queenslander in fifth after being a runaway win in the pro tour in breakaway roping.

Tickets for the Jeep National Finals Rodeo are on sale through Ticketek 132849 or on www.ticketek.com.au
