In February 1944, visitors flocked to the Cooma Rodeo to see Australia's finest rough riders take on the local mountain brumbies. The 'star turn' that year was "Thunderbolt" a wild Brumby from the hills of Kosciusko. Alec Iverson photographed this enthusiastic group sitting on the railings at the height of the action.
