Delta Lawler Livestock & Property Nevertire Rodeo is back for 2019.

After an incredibly successful inaugural year, the Delta Lawler Livestock & Property Nevertire Rodeo is back for 2019.

The ABRCA affiliated event will happen on Saturday, September 28 at the Noel Waters Oval in Nevertire.

Committee members Sam Lawler said they were "absolutely thrilled" with the success of last year's event and said with drought gripping the state it's important for people to come together.

"More than 1200 people came through the gates for an amazing day of action in 2018, raising more than $20,000 for the local community, and we knew immediately we had to put the event on again this year," Mr Lawler said.


"As this horrendous drought rages on, it is even more important this year to host a fun day out for locals and competitors. It's pretty tough going out in the bush at the moment, and we personally know how vital it is for personal wellbeing to get off the farms and take your mind off the drought, even for just one day."

The day will include horse sports from 10am, with gates opening at 9am.

The rodeo kicks off at midday with a number of ABCRA pointed events and unofficial events happening throughout the afternoon, including open and novice bull rides and saddle bronc, bareback, open ladies and junior barrel races, steer rides, dog jumping, a stockman's challenge and the ever popular and entertaining local mule ride.

"We'll have a full bar and food facilities on site for the day to keep spectators fed and watered, as well as a number of local stalls," Mr Lawler said.

The Nevertire Hotel will then host the official after party once the rodeo finishes with live music and dinner on offer.

The Hotel will also be open early on Sunday morning for breakfast and coffee.

"It's also important that we thank our sponsors, the committee, the local community and the Warren Shire Council for their ongoing support, especially as we know many are doing it tough, as without their contribution we wouldn't be able to host such a successful event," concluded Sam.

Entries for the rodeo are open via ABCRA Central Entry and horse sports via Global Entries, with no entries taken on the day. For further information see @deltalawlernevertirerodeo on Facebook
