There were spills aplenty in Mandeville as riders battled their four-legged beasts to stay upright.

Warm weather brought a strong crowd to this year's Canterbury Rodeo, many in traditional cowboy hats.

The rodeo included a range of challenges from bareback horse riding, bull and sheep riding, and roping.
