A special feature of the 2017 Queensland Beef Expo will be one of the fastest growing equine sport in the world, Poker Rodeo.

This will be one of the first times Poker Rodeo will be seen in Queensland, the only arena equestrian sports that challenges riders to think strategically and ride competitively in dynamic timed events.

The 2017 Queensland Beef Expo will feature the prestigious USA Vs Australia Poker Rodeo competition, held over the three days of the Beef Expo.

Imagine the familiar sports of a 2-Man Ranch Sort and Team Penning. Now, imagine… instead of standard numbers on the cattle, you’re looking at specially designed giant playing cards on the cows. It is your team’s challenge to make your best possible five card poker hand by either sorting, penning, or roping five card-tagged cows in the fastest possible time. Your team is rewarded substantially for speed as well as the value of your “hand”.

Poker Rodeo will be running each day of the Queensland Beef Expo. Click here to download the flyer >
