Grab your Akubras and Blundstones; the annual Mount Carbine Bull and Bronc Ride is back for a 19th year with more action and fun for the whole family.

Held on every second Saturday of August all the action starts at 5.00pm with the Calf rides, Junior and Juvenile Steer, Junior, Novice and Open bull.

The ever exciting Bushman’s Saddle Bronc and Men’s Saddle Bronc follows with the best in the business trying their luck in the arena.

COMPETITION CODE WORD: Comment RAWHIDE below to win a double pass to the ride

The small venue means everyone gets the chance to see the rides up close and personal under the magnificent stars of the Far North Queensland night sky.

Riders have a chance to share in great prize money with the Men's Saddle Bronc offering $1,500 prize money and the Bushman's Saddle Bronc with $6,000 up or grabs.

The official events wind up at about 9.30pm while the live band, licensed bar, and hot food outlets will keep punters going until about 2.00am.

Camping is available for those who want to spend the night and a recovery breakfast will be available on Sunday morning for all to enjoy.

Tickets are just $10 for adults, $5 for students and kids can enjoy the events for free. A jumping castle will be available to keep the little ones entertained as well.

While the event is completely family-friendly, guests are asked to leave their four-legged family members at home for the comfort of the other animals and campers.

Riders have until close of business today if they want to register for the event and can do so by contacting Nadia on 0421 069 728.

Get out to the Mount Carbine Rodeo Grounds this weekend for the Bull and Bronc Ride, supported by the North Queensland Rodeo Association, hosted by Karma Waters Station and organised by Mt Carbine Rodeo Association.
