THE first Kongorong Rodeo has been run and won, with organisers pleased with the number of spectators attracted to the event.

Well over 1000 people flocked to the Kongorong football oval and were entertained with top competition across all classes.

One class in particular - the novice bull ride - saw five "local" footballers take on the challenge of bull riding, with Nick Neave staying on for the longest to claim the honours, much to the pleasure of the crowd.

For the main events, the Open Bull Ride was claimed by Sam Woodall with a score of 84.
