“WHAT goes up must come down” wasn’t the kind of motivation I wanted before I jumped on a bull in front of a crowd at Rose City Shoppingworld yesterday.

I wasn’t really prepared for the event, first of all arriving at work in a dress above the knee, so a quick dash back to Allora and I arrived back in the Rose City sporting the only country shirt I own.

I found it hard enough navigating my way across the inflatable arena before being told I had to bounce high to make the jump on to the bull’s back. By this point I could feel my face burning with embarrassment as I waited for my unco-ordination to make me fall face first into the plastic.

This didn’t happen as the man in charge must have noticed my lack of control and I idled away at the pace I think they would set for under five-year-olds for about one minute before he increased the challenge.

It didn’t take long for me to come loose in the fake saddle as I slowly, but surprisingly not-too-awkwardly, fell off the bull totalling a time of 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Some kind of record I am sure.

Make sure you come and check out the mechanical bull spectacular for a chance to win a weekend pass to the Warwick Rodeo.

The rides are free out the front of Bi-Lo from 1pm to 4pm until Thursday.
