Easter Sunday will see the Barooga Recreation Reserve transformed to create a modern-day arena for the Murray River town’s inaugural APRA rodeo.

Rodeo organiser Dean Miller said the ‘‘pro bull’’ event returns bigger and better to Barooga after a three-year spell.

‘‘This is not your average rodeo. We’re delivering a live sporting entertainment experience like no other that features the most accomplished cowboy athletes in the business going head to head against what can only be described as the most extreme bucking stock on the planet.

‘‘It’s the best entertainment at an affordable price.’’

See the country’s best cowboys and cowgirls racing against the clock in the popular rope and tie, steer wrestling and barrel racing.

For many, eight seconds may not sound like a long time, yet to a cowboy on the back of a bull or bucking horse it can sometimes feel like eternity, especially when you have an 800kg bull doing everything in its power to slam you in the dirt.

It’s ‘edge of your seat’ sporting entertainment from the grand opening right through to the last event of the night.

You’re sure to see sensational rides and even more spectacular buck-offs as the genetically bred stock explode into the arena with unpredictable moves.
