Despite the heavy rainfalls experienced in the Capital throughout the weekend, people from all around the country attended the event.
According to information coming in from the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources, 16,000 people attended on Saturday and 18,000 people on Sunday; an increase from the previous year.
A number of prizes were distributed in the various categories which included calf roping and cow milking among others. In the bull riding category, because no one stayed on the bull for 8 seconds, the $1,000 cash prize for the best performer was retracted.
There were a few upset cowboys who thought the prize should still be awarded but in the end the rodeo committee decided to push the money to next year’s rodeo competition, which will see a first place cash prize of $2,000 dollars for the bull riding category.
