Rodeo Raises Funds

Movember has struck a chord around the world with the Queensland Working Cow Horse Club’s (QWCHC) 22nd November Event proving no exception.

Held at the Caboolture Showground indoor arena,  the event was well-attended and ran over the entire weekend, with a two-handed snaffle bit cutting competition followed by a wild card team penning event.

The wild card team penning event donated all nominations to the APCRC-Q, raising a total of $1,600 towards the cause.

Spectator and competitor donations also added to this amount, as did a raffle held throughout the weekend.

Novelty fines of $5 were also dealt out over the weekend for infringements such as losing a hat in the arena whilst riding.

These fines also added to the fundraising.

QWCHC President John Brannigan said it was a massive weekend of competition and is pleased to have raised this significant donation.

Congratulations and much appreciation to John and the team at QWCHC for their well-needed donation to Prostate Cancer Research.
