Turfites will be in for a treat on Sunday October 26 when the Rising Sun Rodeo Committee stages it annual Agriculture Month rodeo activities at the Rising Sun Turf Club’s West Coast Berbice headquarters starting at 11:00hrs.
Ten events are carded for the day including roping and milking the wild cow. Organizer of activities, I Habibula disclosed that all events were planned with an aim of providing top class entertainment for patrons.
He mentioned the ‘Bare Back Bronco’ event where riders mount a wild horse and attempt to remain there for as long as possible.
He explained that riders can attempt to stay atop the bronco for as long as possible but they must remain saddled for at least 10 seconds to be in contention for a prize. In this event the horses usually buck frantically in an attempt to unseat the rider.
Habibula explained that an important prerequisite of this activity is that both the rider and the horse must perform credibly to qualify for the prize at stake.
Milking the wild cow is another event that is expected to provide unbridled entertainment. Here, the vaquero will have to somehow succeed in restraining the animal long enough to extract enough milk from its teats. Other events include the male/female barrel race and calf and steer roping among others.
There will also be female riders involved in the wild bulls and wild horses’ events. Fans will also be treated to a tug-o-war competition between the cowboys and the villagers.
Trophies and cash prizes will be up for grabs while there will also a competitor’s parade as well as a special prize for the best dressed vaquero.
Was Jagdeo honest when he made those promises?
