Brenton Hoare the promising cowboy

HE may be only 14 but he has already incurred in the same highs and lows of older and more high-profile cowboys.

Brenton Hoare is a bull rider and steer rider, and tells quite a tale of his 2009 year’s experience in the ring.

The Mt Morgan cowboy is the Young Guns Steer Riding Champion that he gained two days after his cast was removed from his broken leg injury.

“I was riding the bull and when I jumped off the bull, it stood on my leg and broke it. I don’t remember any pain,” Hoare said.

The promising cowboy doesn’t have a care in the world and competed in last weekend’s Battle of the Bulls Christmas Bull Ride, where he held onto the bull for five seconds before falling off.

Brenton Hoare is a character to look out for in up and coming bull riding events as he shows little fear or nerves in his loved sport.
