I enjoy going to rodeos but we usually only have 2 or 3 within reasonable driving distance of me a year. I have been involved in a couple of them but most of them only offer barrels and poles for women to compete in and speed events really aren't my thing. Of the ones I have been in, I got recruited to be a member on a team for a ranch rodeo for one and the other, I did the team penning with some friends. I do really enjoy watching, the roughstock events are my favorite.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Haha! Some of ours are pretty good looking too. And some really aren't... We've got about 50/50. :) The only event I really don't like is the bulls and that's because I'm scared of them. I've seen one too many cowboys knocked unconscious or rushed to the hospital I guess. Barrel racing I my favorite event. We don't have poles at our rodeo, but it's pretty small. It's the biggest event of the year though. (there are under 500 people in town... Not much excitement.) I can't wait for this year. I have an awesome camera now so I may have to post some pictures.

Our town seems small, but we have like 9,000 people. So our rodeo is a bit bigger. And ChristianCowgirl, I too just got a really nice new DSLR camera, and so it was awesome taking pictures at the rodeo!! =)

@ Jillyann, my hubby's aunt lives in Rochester. Shame on her for not telling me about the smokin' cowboys. Now I have another reason to go visit.

We have some really good rodeos around here. Meeker, Prague and Shawnee have open rodeos quite frequently. There will be a rodeo in Prague this weekend that will also feature the "Cowboy's Pride" rescue horse competion. Local area trainers all got ubroken, unhandled, rank rescue horses and had three months to rehab them into well trained rideable horses. I'm dying to see them (may even sneak over to Prague Lake to see if I can see some of the competive trail riding event).

Prague and Meeker rodeos usually feature a "you catch it, you keep it" event for the little ones (featuring wild and wooley chickens) and "mutton bustin'". My grandkids usually place in the mutton bustin', but this year, only my youngest is still eligible to compete. She tells everyone she's a "professional rodeo girl" because she's won money at a rodeo! (which is true - she won $75 at one and $45 at another)

She wants to get a horse and start competing in barrel racing and pole bending. (she's only six, so that thought still scares me!) Grandson wants to learn to rope. Right now, he's roping everying in sight, including the dog. (she loves it if he doesn't get too rough!)

Someone said a roping horse doesn't do much - and I beg to differ. If the horse doesn't do his job well, the cowboy doesn't win any $$. A good roping horse knows how to get the roper into position, how to stop the roped calf and keep just enough tension on the rope so that the calf doesn't come out of the loop before the roper gets there. It's not something that just any horse can do. The roping horse that helps his rider finish in the $$ consistently is worth his weight in gold! I've seen grade geldings sell for $10,000 - $15,000 because they are so good at what they do...

I ride only western. There are a lot of western riders on here. Im one and if your looking for someone rodeo then talk to my friend (username starlet) she's rodeo and rides western also. I guess we should probably speak up more lol in our area (we're neibors) there is mostly western and rodeo. We have several different rodeos in our county and several surrounding counties.

It is the unknown we fear when we look upon darkness and death. Nothing more.
