There were two 4-H Clubs on the grounds making sure everything was running as smoothly as possible! The Legendary Flatlanders directed drivers into parking stalls and the Cowboy Trailblazers were out selling 50/50 to the rodeo goers.

Steel, Kash, Peyton, and Meagan were ready to sell thier 50/50 tickets!!

There was a special event where 4 different teams had to dress-up a goat and then run a barrel racing pattern on an inflatable horse.

Jessica Giles, Sam Giles, Monique Hardy and I were a team for Sun Country and together we completed all the challenges and had lots of fun while doing it!!

I was able to speak with a winning Wild Pony Race team, who caught and rode their pony in just 3.5 seconds!

This was Ava Scheerhoorn, Sadie Brown and Markus Mason's first year competing at the rodeo but they are already planning on signing up again next year!!

Hope you have a great day,
