Prior knowledge or experience is not important.  All events can be modified to be beginner friendly.

Campers will participate in instruction and practice for two events.  We are asking you to select an alternate event in case there are too many or not enough registrants for any event.  We will make every attempt to accommodate your selections.

Campers will be allowed to select the event (or two events) to participate in the final rodeo, however, they must select an event they have participated in during the camp session.

  • Team Roping
    This event typically requires two competitors: a header and a heeler. Once the steer leaves the chute and reaches its head start point, both cowboys come out of the boxes on horseback. The header is in charge of roping the horns, and the heeler is in charge of the feet.  The header ropes the steer’s head and turns the steer to set it up in good position for the heeler. The heeler then ropes the back two legs of the steer. Our instruction staff will compete with the camper if they do not have a roping partner. 
  • Barrel Racing
    Three barrels are set up in a triangle inside of the arena. The rider performs a cloverleaf pattern horseback, looping around each of the three barrels without knocking any of them down.
  • Goat Tying
    Our goat tying event can be participated in with or without a horse.  The participant runs or rides a horse (participant's choice) to a tethered goat, dismounts (if riding), catches, throws, and ties any three of the goats legs together. The goat must stay tied for six seconds after the contestant has backed away from the animal. If the goat becomes untied before six seconds have passed, the rider receives no score.
  • Chute Dogging
    A horse is not used in the Chute Dogging event.  Chute dogging is a rodeo event related to steer wrestling, in which the steer used weighs between 400 and 500 pounds (180 and 230 kg). The competitor starts the event in a roping chute with the steer as opposed to grabbing onto the steer from horseback. The event is designed to give novices a chance to prepare for steer wrestling.
  • Rough Stock
    No horse is needed for this event.  Rough stock is steer riding with a bull rope, bareback rigging, or saddle bronc saddle. We hope to be offering bareback and saddle bronc on horses when we have pickup men. 
  • Breakaway
    The breakaway rider waits for the calf to have a head start before leaving the box. The roper on horseback, ropes the calf around the neck, and stops their horse. The rope is fastened to the saddle with a nylon string which breaks when the horse stops and the calf continues.
  • Pole Bending
    Pole bending is a timed event that features a horse and one mounted rider, running a weaving or serpentine path around six poles arranged in a line. 
  • TD Roping/calf tying 
    Calf tying can be participated in with or without a horse. The calf is first released from the chute. After the cowboy waits horseback in the box for the calf to reach its head start, he then runs up behind the calf with the goal of roping the animal. Once his loop catches the calf, he quickly dismounts, “flanks” the animal, or lays it on the ground, and ties three of its legs together with a rope called the “pigging string”. If the calf stays tied for six seconds, the roper qualifies for a time.
  • Cowboy Skills 
    This event does not require a horse.  The participant will learn everyday skills and horsemanship used in daily ranch work.
