Ranch Rodeo – Saturday, August 13, 2016

 

Cowboys and cowgirls from throughout the Central Valley compete in this day long event for more than $16,000 in prizes including custom made saddles and silver bits. The best riders and their horses must ride, rope, brand, rein and perform cow work exercises against each other; competing in the kind of ranching activities they must do every day on their working cattle ranch operations. Each team consists of four (4) riders who must use their same horse for the entire event.

Usually held during the month of April, the 16th Annual Ranch Rodeo was postponed earlier this year due to weather.  The event will now be held on Saturday, August 13.   Ranch Rodeo action will begin about 9:30 a.m. in the Clovis Rodeo Arena.  There is no admission charge for fans.

Qualifying Ranch Rodeo teams interested in participating should contact the Clovis Rodeo office at 559-299-8838 for more information.
