Connecting you with Bull Riding in New Zealand
‘8 Seconds’ Bullriding is an exciting new event management company created by Duncan & Tina Mackintosh and Lachlan & Sonya Mackintosh, a family affair with both brothers being past successful bull riders both nationally and internationally. We are a separate identity from a full scale rodeo, focusing on ‘Bullriding’ as our main event and the publics favourite attraction of a rodeo.
Our first rodeo in 2009 provided action packed extreme entertainment for spectators & attracted NZ's top cowboys and cowgirls.
We are a group of dedicated volunteers, some of whom have been on the committee since 1990
We are the Urenui Festival Organisation Incorporated
The Richmond Rodeo Club originally started out as the Motueka Rodeo Club. In 2003 the name was changed due to a change of both sponsorship and venue.
The Annual Opotiki Rodeo is not to be missed. It features spectacular horse and western type events and is commended by the competing cowboys & girls to be one of the best in New Zealand.
The Wanaka Rodeo Club was formed in 1963 and has run its annual rodeo 43 times since then. Originally the rodeo was sited at the Wanaka Showgrounds but has for some years run at Peter Gordon's property on Golf Course road.
