IN ACTION: Champion ladies bronc rider Jess Munro will have a feature ride at the Clifton Show rodeo tomorrow night.

SOME of the best riders and stock in the country will descend on the Clifton Show, as the popular rodeo returns tomorrow night.

Kicking off at 7.30pm the rodeo is expected to draw a record crowd to the Clifton Showgrounds.

Making a feature riding appearance, 17-year-old champion bronc rider Jess Munro said it would be like another day at work breaking in horses.

"I'll be riding one of the Gill's horses, which will be cool," she said.

"They've got the best stock in the country."

Originally from Moree, Jess moved to Allora seven months ago to work for Scott Keogh at his Spring Creek Ranch.

In October Jess won the women's buck jump at the Warwick Rodeo, her first major win as a bronc rider.

The rough rider said she's looking forward to tomorrow's night rodeo.

"It's such a good night out," she said.

"It's a good opportunity to see some of the best riders and stock at your doorstep."

The rodeo will be held alongside a jam packed Saturday night show program, including the Outback riders at 7pm and fireworks at 8.15pm.

The Clifton Show officially begins today with prime cattle judging, a cattle sale and a stud heifer show.

From early tomorrow morning, stud cattle judging, the championship dog show and ring events will begin.
