The horses, the bulls and the riders return to Forbes on Saturday, April 14 for the annual rodeo. 

The 2018 Forbes Rodeo aims to impress with many favourite activities from previous years including junior and novice barrel races, breakaway roping and the Jaye Davie Memorial Steer Ride.

The rodeo will also have a new buckle - the Paddy Molloy All Round Buckle – named for a resident who had a long association with the event. 

“Come and support your local junior competitors who have been rodeoing for much of the season,” organiser Shaun Read said.

Showground gates open at 10am with admission prices of $15 for adults, $10 for kids under 16 and $40 for a family.

Bar and canteen facilities are available but the event is strictly no BYO alcohol.
