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

Campers will participate in instruction for two events.  We ask that you 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.

  • Team Roping
    A horse is required for this event.  Team roping 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
    A horse is required for this event.  Three barrels are set up in a triangle inside the arena. The rider performs a cloverleaf pattern horseback, looping around each of the three barrels without knocking any of them down. *This event is for girls only*
  • Goat Tying
    A horse is optional for this event.  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 goat's legs together. The goat must stay tied for six seconds after the contestant has backed away from the animal. If the goat stays tied for six seconds, the contestant qualifies for a time. *This event is for girls only*
  • Chute Dogging
    No horse is needed for this event.  Chute dogging is a rodeo event related to steer wrestling, in which the steer weighs between 400 and 500 pounds. The competitor starts the event in a bucking 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. *This event is for boys only*
  • Rough Stock
    No horse is needed for this event.  Rough stock is steer riding with either 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. *This event is for boys only*
  • Breakaway
    A horse is required for this event.  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
    A horse is required for this event.  Pole bending is a timed event that features a horse and rider, running a weaving or serpentine path around six poles arranged in a line. *This event is for girls only*
  • Tie Down Roping/Calf Tying 
    A horse is optional for this event. The calf is first released from the chute. After the cowboy waits horseback (if riding) 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 (if riding), “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 
    A horse is needed for this event, but one will be provided if the camper does not bring one.  The participant will learn everyday skills and horsemanship used in daily ranch work.
