The stage is set for some top action as the entries are high, with J.P. Gill and sons top bucking bulls and horses.

The Tumbarumba rodeo began in 1945 as a fundraiser for the district hospital.

In those days Tumut, Wagga and Holbrook bucking horses were shared between rodeos and although styles were a bit different in those days, there were some excellent horses.

Names such as “Porky”, “Jugiong”, “Blue Elastic”,”Tooma Whiskey”, “Blondie”, “The pope” and “1080” are still talked about today.

In more recent years “Spitfire” who was compared by the Jack Gill, as one of the clubs best bucking horses.

Although he never made bareback horse of the year, he holds the record of being unridden over four rounds of the National Finals Rodeo.

This feat was achieved in Sydney in 1992.

The committee has moved with the times and runs a full APRA championship rodeo.

The arena is smaller the surface is better prepared J.P. Gills stock are used to the grounds but it is still uniquely the Tumbarumba New Year’s Day Rodeo.

The Rodeo club will be holding a reunion at the Bowling Club New Year’s Eve afternoon at the bowling club for old riders and committee members.
