The Beaver Creek Rodeo features the full line up of classic rodeo events – Bareback & Saddle Bronc Riding, Team Roping, Barrel Racing and of course, Bull Riding! Get in on the rodeo action by signing up for the Calf Scramble, Mutton Bustin’ or Burro Racing. Bring the whole family for pony rides, face painting, mechanical bull rides, and a wide range of food options offered by local high country restaurants beginning when gates open at 5 p.m. Yee Haw!

The Rodeo Grounds are located in Avon behind Chapel Square with free shuttle service from Beaver Creek Dial-a-Ride as well as the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa.

Special for July 3rd: Going to FirstBank’s Salute to the USA? After the Rodeo, Beaver Creek will provide shuttles from the Rodeo Grounds to the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa for guests who want to watch the fireworks at Nottingham Park. These shuttles will run until 8:30pm.

EVENT DESCRIPTIONS

Saddle Bronc Riding

Saddle Bronc Riding is an iconic 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.

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.

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!

Calf Scramble Kids 
The first five buckaroos to pull ribbons from the tails of a group of friendly calves win a prize! Calf Scramble is free of charge and limited to 100 kids ages 7-12.

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.

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! Mutton Bustin’ is $25 and limited to the first 15 kids to sign up. Participants cannot weight more than 50 lbs, or measure more than 50 inches tall.

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 3 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/team and limited to the first 3 teams to sign up.

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.
