A 1500-strong crowd is expected today at the Teebar Show, Campdraft and Rodeo, eager to watch energetic bull and stud riders try their hardest.

Teebar Show and Sports Association president Malcolm Beresford yesterday ripped the grounds to ensure a soft landing for those bucked off.

"It's looking beautiful here at the moment," he said.

'I've been sitting here going around in circles for 10 hours on both the rodeo and campdraft grounds."

The rodeo is expected to run for more than six hours today to accommodate the 187 riders who rolled into town yesterday, he said.

More than 350 competitors will try their hardest in ring events, cooking and craft competitions.

Mr Beresford said the show yesterday was already well underway. "Plenty of trucks are parked, people are warming up their horses in the rings and the action has already started."
