FRANKI, Levi and Bobbi Ward have all returned to action with their first rodeo since COVID-19 restrictions floored the industry last year.
Held on New Year's Eve, the event in Warwick Queelsand saw the Wards achieve some impressive results.
Levi won the under 12s and scored a second in the under 15s.
Bobbi took out second in the under 18s barrel racing, and had her first attempt at rodeo bull riding, with an 8-second jaunt on the mini bull Chill Pill.
Franki, the youngest of the three talented siblings, won the under 12s barrel racing.
The riders have returned to the rodeo circuit but there are still heavy restrictions on spectator numbers with the event in Warwick capped at 3000, tickets sold out fast, and there were strict COVID-19 measures in place.
It's been nearly a year since COVID derailed 2020, but the Wards kept busy with other sports during the long break.
"When it became clear rodeos were going to be on hold for a while, I signed up to play rugby league with the Kempsey Dragons under 12's for a season," Levi said.
"It was a lot of fun; I'd never played before because I've spent every weekend of the last five years on the road travelling to rodeos."
Bobbi also signed up, making a name for herself as a top notch player in the Macleay Under 15s Gold Team.
