Levi and Bobbi Ward have achieved a great deal in the last few years, but the talented siblings have recently outdone themselves by being the first brother and sister in the country to be crowned the under 18 all-round champions.
Achieved at the recent Australian Bushmen's Campdraft and Rodeo Association (ABCRA) national finals in Tamworth, the siblings both took out the top prize in their divisions.
Levi is only 11 years old; however, the talented youngster already has many years of riding under his belt after starting at a young age.
"I got into riding because of a family friend, Brad Scott, he is a local bull rider, I started riding steers when I was very young over at his house," he told the Argus.
"I really love riding the mini bulls, and the roping, that would have to be my favourite.
"I just wish I could go into the higher class sooner, ride the bigger and better bulls and challenge myself more."
Since those early riding sessions, Levi has gone on to win plenty of accolades and even had a stint competing in America against some of the best in the sport.
After his recent outing in Tamworth, the bull rider has added to his growing list of achievements and hopes to build on his success to pursue his dreams overseas.
"At the recent national finals, I won the under 18 All-Round title, the 8 to 11 years steer title, the under 11 barrel title, the 8 to 11 steer bad company title, the 8 to 11 steer central title and the 8 to 11 central circuit barrel tittle," Levi said.
"I hope to go on and fulfill my dream by riding for the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) in America, and eventually be the world number one.
"I want to win a world title, I won't retire until I win one and achieve that goal."
Levi's older sister Bobbi has always been there on the sidelines cheering her brother on, and his impressive feats inspired her to follow the same path.
"I travelled all over Australia watching Levi in the rodeo, and in 2017, I thought I might like to have a go at barrel racing, I then won my first barrel title in 2018," she said.
"At the recent finals in Tamworth, I won the All Round junior cowgirl title, and I came runner up in the 11 to 14 barrel tittle.
"I'm hoping to make it over to America one day and make a career out this."
I think I'll be doing this for the rest of my life; I can't wait until I'm old enough to start steer undecorating.- Franki Ward
Not to be outdone by her older siblings, Franki Ward has also been blazing a path through the sport as well and has even found herself up against older brother Levi.
"I've had a great year on the circuit, but beating Levi at the finals to win the average would have to be the highlight of my career so far," she said.
"We had been battling all year in the barrel race, Levi came out on top to win the title, but at the finals, I came out and won the average over two rounds."
"I think I'll be doing this for the rest of my life; I can't wait until I'm old enough to start steer undecorating."
The Ward siblings all have very bright futures ahead, but they are quick to acknowledge all the help they have had along the way.
From the family members who have travelled and supported them every weekend, to the local sponsors who have helped pay the way and get them to this point.
"Thank you to everyone that has been there for me all year round, my family and all our great sponsors," Bobbi said.
"Thank you to our family for taking us to the rodeos every weekend, and all our sponsors, we couldn't do this without them," Levi said.
