Plans have now been finalized to bring a Ranch Rodeo, Girls Break Away Roping, Open Team Roping and Open Barrel Race to our facility at 1315 South Main September 24-26. We will start with an open 4D Girls Barrel Race on Thursday evening (September 24), then an open Team Roping Friday evening. Saturday morning will start at 9:00 AM with the Girls Break Away Roping, then finish the weekend off with a Ranch Rodeo Saturday evening starting at 7:30 PM. We will offer concessions at each event.
The Open Barrel Race and Team Roping are open to the public with free admission. The Girls Break Away Roping will cost $5.00 per person at the gate, the Ranch Rodeo will cost $10.00 per adult at the gate. We will be offering a combination day pass for Saturday events at a discount of $12.00. Box Seats (six seats to a box) are available on a limited basis for $100.00 for the day.

A ranch rodeo is a traditional type of rodeo in which teams of cowboys or cowgirls from different ranches compete against each other in events based on the type of work they do every day. Ranch rodeos differ from the more common PRCA-style rodeos. Ranch cowboys and cowgirls
compete in events that are designed to test their skills in aspects of everyday ranch life. Events including sorting, doctoring, bronc riding and wild cow milking provide plenty of challenges for the team and excitement for the crowd.
Stock contractor Saunders & Saunders Livestock Co. along with rodeo announcer Doug Mathis and Sound Man Casey Deardorff add excitement and world-class professionalism as they introduce the ranches, cowboys, and sponsors of the event.
Team Doctoring is an event that is accomplished on horseback with one cowboy roping the head and another roping the heels. As the calf is held with ropes from both ends, the doctoring takes place. The ranchers are faced with a limited number of tries, which makes this event intense and exciting to watch.
Team Sorting has become known as one of the most popular events in ranch rodeos. It requires four team members to read and judge the cattle’s behavior. A good cutting horse is vital, as three cows must be cut from the herd. Team members must keep the three cattle separated from the herd and drive them to the pen. Patience and teamwork is the key in this event. The winner is determined by the fastest time.
Ranch Bronc Riding is the only event in which only one member of the team participates. For 8 seconds the cowboy tests his bronc riding skills as he tries to obtain points for the team. On the ranch it is important to have an adequate supply of good horses for working cattle. “Starting” and training new broncs each year is just a typical part of the job for a cowboy.
Wild Cow Milking is an event that often brings laughter and heightened anticipation as a team of four cowboys does whatever it takes to catch and milk a wild milk cow. When the cow is roped three team members on the ground hang on the best way possible to bring the cow to a standstill so that one of the team members can collect milk in a long neck bottle and run to the finish line. The actual bringing the cow to a standstill usually causes a lot of laughter. If no milk is collected the team gets no points.
