EVENT DESCRIPTIONS


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.
  • Ranch Saddle Riding is similar to Saddle Bronc, but 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.

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 presented by Alpine Bank
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 presented by Steadman Clinic
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' presented by Slifer, Smith and Frampton
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 presented by East West Resorts
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.
