Calf Scramble
100 kids ages 5 - 12 will enter the arena and chase down a group of friendly calves. The first five buckaroos to pull a ribbon from the calves' tails win a prize! Calf Scramble is free of charge and is limited to 100 kids. Parent or guardian MUST sign a waiver at the Information Tent, located across from the main entry gate/ticket office. 

Mutton Bustin' 
The youngest cowboys and cowgirls show their stuff in this rodeo favorite. The buckaroo who holds onto his or her wild-n-wooly sheep the longest brings home a trophy! Participants must be age 3 or older and cannot weigh more than 50 lbs, or measure more than 50 inches tall (Child MUST be present). Mutton Bustin’ is $25 and limited to 15 children. Parent or guardian MUST sign a waiver at the Information Tent, located across from the main entry gate/ticket office. 

Burro Racing 
Moms, Dads and anyone 18 or older – this is your chance to test your donkey handling and riding abilities! Three teams consisting of three people each race to grab a burro and push, pull & ride it from one end of the arena, around the barrel and back! Burro Racing is $25 per team and limited to the first 3 teams to sign up. All team members MUST sign a waiver at the Information Tent, located across from the main entry gate/ticket office.

Rodeo Events

Ranch Saddle Riding 
Ranch Saddle is an iconic Ranch Rodeo staple – 8 seconds of vicious riding – much less if the bronc wins! The rider can be disqualified for many infractions including: pulling leather (holding onto the saddle), changing hands on the rein, wrapping the rein around his hand or losing a stirrup. The horse must be saddled exactly as it would be for ranch work. No rodeo saddles here!

Bareback Bronc Riding
To win this event, the cowboy must hang on to the bucking bronco with just one hand and endure 8 long seconds of whiplash, whirling, and twirling. Nothing stands between the horse and the cowboy – no reins, no stirrups, not even a saddle!

Team Roping 
Two cowboys, a header and a heeler work together to catch a steer as fast as possible, earning points for their skill and speed.

Barrel Racing 
Elegant riding and precise timing are the keys to winning this intense competition which consists of sprinting into the arena and tightly turning a cloverleaf pattern around three barrels.

Bull Riding 
In this dangerous event, bull riders must overcome 2,000 lbs of angry animal angst for 8 exciting seconds. A loose rope and the cowboy’s one-handed steely grip are all the hold the rider to the beast.
