SYDNEY, Mar. 1 (People’s Daily Online) -- Taralga is a small village in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia, about 3 hours from Sydney and 90 minutes from Canberra. The town hosts the Taralga Rodeo and Campdraft event every year.

It’s worth mentioning that ‘Campdrafting’ is a unique Australian sport involving a horse and rider working cattle. It is similar to the American stock horse events such as cutting, working cow horse, team penning and ranch sorting. This sport requires consummate skill and horsemanship.

The Taralga Rodeo and Campdraft is a great outing for the whole family. All members of the family are able to participate. This event incorporates many highlights, including bull riding, bronc bucking action and man versus horse. You can watch exciting Australian rodeo there, or you can choose to sit on the hillside and enjoy the country music.

About all the cattle are donated by the local people. Therefore, all money raised during the event is donated back into the local community.
