Farley brothers' charity bull riding

There was plenty of thrills and spills at the annual Farley Brothers’ Charity Bull Ride at Kempsey Showground on Saturday night.

Forty of the best international and domestic professional cowboys put on a show, exciting fans as they tested themselves on some of the toughest stock from across New South Wales and as far away as Warwick in Queensland.

The championship round was dominated by the man currently ranked number one in the world, Aaron Kleier, from Clermont in Qld.

Kleier took home the coveted Blue Moon Bull Riding belt buckle.

This year the best young amateur riders from across Australia also competed in the Junior Bull Ride.

The event was an opportunity for these less experienced riders to learn the ropes before going pro.

Argus’ photographer Penny Tamblyn was there to capture all of the action.
