The National Finals Rodeo is the pinnacle event of the rodeo circuit. New Zealand’s best cowboys and cowgirls vie for titles in this annual sporting spectacular. Held at the new Wanaka Rodeo Grounds in Albert Town for the first time, the top eight competitors go head to head in open bareback, rope and tie, saddle bronc, barrel racing, steer wrestling, team roping and bull riding categories – each event coming with a $5000 prize pool. Skill and strength will be on display over two days promising a great spectacle with plenty of thrills and spills. Kiwi country singer and rising star, Wanaka’s own Jody Direen, will perform at the grounds on March 8 after the first go-round.
