Former student of Kingstown Public School, Hayley Wisemantel, has qualified to represent Australia at the National High Schools Finals Rodeo at Rock Springs, Wyoming, USA in July.
And her old school is helping her get there.
Kingstown School's Rodeo Day raised $387 toward Hayley's trip to the USA where she will be competing in the barrell racing, breakaway roping, pole bending and team roping events.
"Thank you to the Kingstown school and community for their great support of the day," the school's principal, Sharon Ryan, said. "Kingstown a small community with big hearts is right behind their local star."
The school has 19 students, and their principal said they all enjoyed this special day.
"The authentic broom horses for the barrel and pole bending relays were a credit to the students. So much fun."
Hayley also showed the Kingstown students how to lasso a dummy cow.
"They certainly picked it up," the school's administrator, Cherie Patch, said.
The ladies from the Armidale Honky Tonk Linedancers visited for the day and taught beginners line dancing!
"Many of us had never line danced before, so in the spirit of the day, the country music ramped up,and everyone, had a go and enjoyed every minute," Ms Ryan said.
