Clovis Ranch Rodeo to take place Saturday, August 11

Watch cowboys and cowgirls compete in the ranching events they do every day on working cattle ranches throughout the nation.  This annual event puts teams of four riders and their horses through a variety of events where they display their all-around roping and riding skills.  Traditionally held during the month of April to celebrate the annual Clovis Rodeo, the event was rescheduled due to weather earlier this year.  The competition begins at about 10 a.m. in the main arena and  is free to the public.  Those Ranch Rodeo teams wishing to register should call the Clovis Rodeo office.

As an official Clovis Rodeo event all copyright and media restrictions apply.

Earl Hall Named Grand Marshal of the 104th Clovis Rodeo

 The 104th Clovis Rodeo Grand Marshal, Earl Hall, is a familiar face around the sport of rodeo.  At eighteen he became a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and has been involved in rodeo ever since.  A past board member, and long time supporter of the Clovis Rodeo, he continues to compete today in team roping events in the Gold Card 50-years plus category.

“We are honored to tip our hats to our friend and fellow cowboy Earl Hall,” said Gary Bower President of the Clovis Rodeo Association.  “One of the most generous hearts you’ll ever meet, Earl is always helping others and giving them a hand up so they can move forward.  He’s a great team roper and believes in the sport of rodeo.  We appreciate the friendship and support he shows to the Clovis Rodeo that helps us continue to give back to our community.”

Earl will be presented with the traditional cowboy hat and belt buckle during a reception in his honor the last week of April.  He will have the honor of leading the annual Clovis Rodeo parade through the streets of downtown Clovis on Saturday, April 28.  Fans can also watch our 104th Clovis Rodeo Grand Marshal compete in the Gold Card Team Roping competition on Sunday, April 29 at 9 a.m. in the arena.
