2018 Mudgee Show Rodeo action draws a large crowd to the annual event

The action came thick and fast on the first day of the 2018 Mudgee Show, with a good crowd turning out for the ever-popular Rodeo.

Mudgee Guardian photographer Simone Kurtz caught all the action as some of the best bullriders tried their luck against very angry beasts.

The rides and sideshow alley were also popular with young children while the quality of entries for displays at the pavilion was high.
